No bake lasagna

This was pretty easy.  Usually lasagna takes a while - mostly the hour to hour and a half baking time.  Although this doesn't look as good as traditional lasagna, it sure tasted good!

What you need:
500g ground beef (rindfleisch)
1 diced onion
3 minced cloves garlic
1 can diced tomatoes
1 1/4 c water
250g tomato sauce
12-15 lasagna noodles (I used no bake, veggie), broken up
1 container ricotta (or cottage) cheese
1/4 cup parmesan (gruyere or sprinz if you don't have the parm)
mozzarella cheese (I used the mini cheese balls to save time)
1 tbls parsley, basil, and oregano
1 tsp salt

Cook the hamburger with the onions and garlic.  Partway through, I discovered I had mushrooms so added them in. Sliced zucchini would also be good.  Add in the tomatoes (with their juice), water, tomato sauce and spices.  Stir in the lasagna noodles as well. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium and cook for about 20 minutes.  Stir occasionally so that the noodles to not stick to the bottom of the can.

Combne the cheeses and spoon on top of the mixture.  Cook 3-5 more minutes.  Sprinkle with the mozzarella and a little basil before serving.  Don't forget the garlic bread! :-)

details coming soon...
