Simple and good lasagna recipes/ideas?

Has anyone done lasagna in their Airstream oven? We like to use our trailer oven and are looking for a simple lasagna (probably using no boil noodles) that is saucy, cheesy, and good. I haven't had much luck with lasagna at home, but sometimes it sounds really good when camping along with the essentials, wine, salad, bread (especially as the weather gets cooler). Any ideas are appreciated. No dietary limitations, love beef, sausage, or veggie. Thanks

Artichoke heart lasagna.... Not to simple but very good...

I do most of my prep work before I leave and freeze it. Do this with a lot of foods...

2 cans 14 oz artichoke hearts
8 oz lasagna
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups grated parmesan
(or what ever cheese you like and you can put in more or less)

The sauce

1/2 stick butter
1/4 cup flour
1/8 tsp white peper
1 cup 1/2 and 1/2
1 cup milk
2 tbsp grated onion (fresh)
1 tsp salt
Butter in frying pan, brown onions and add rest bring to an almost boil and let stand


2 cups Cottage cheese
2 eggs
1/2 cup parmesan cheese.
Mix in blender for 5 min. then put in eggs and cheese

Mix sauce and filling together and bring to boil...

the it goes in this order

1. Noodle
2. Filling
3. 1/2 the artichokes
4. 1/2 the cheese

or reduce to 1/3 and have 3 layers
Bake 350 for 35-40 minutes..

It is so good.....


May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..

start simple, get the ronzoni no boil noodles and use the recipe on the box. make extra and freeze it. i've done the boil noodles but it adds a lot to the production.

i find that reheated lasagna sets up rather nicely without all the runny sauce. foil pans are helpful too.

i am available for taste testing!

I would suggest that you make your lasagna at home prior to the trip, divide it into portions, freeze them, and take along in the Airstream freezer. Remove what you want for a meal earlier in the day to thaw, and warm in the oven. I just made a batch this weekend. I use no recipe, just a sense of what makes delicious lasagna. I only make big batches to serve our big family at holiday or weekends when the sons and daughters and their families come for the day. I begin by browning a big family size pack of lean ground beef in a large deep skillet. While that is browning, in a large mixing bowl, I stir together 2 large containers of ricotta cheese, 2-3 eggs, seasonings such as garlic, oregano, basil, salt, Old Bay, pepper-generously for a flavorful dish. After pouring off any fat from the browned beef, I add 2-3 26 oz (or one supersized jar) of your favorite tomato sauce (we use Prego) and stir the beef and sauce together well. I open one pack of oven-ready lasagna noodles and also one large container of grated Italian cheese mix (your favorite cheeses could be used here). I spray a large lasagna pan (deep sided) with cooking spray or use olive oil. Beginning with a cup or two of the meat mixture, I spread this over the bottom of the pan. Next I layer 3-4 of the noodles, not overlapping because they swell with cooking. Next comes a layer of the ricotta cheese mix, topped by a generous sprinkling of the Italian cheeses. I repeat these layers two more times, topping all with a spreading of any meat mixture left or just the Prego sauce and some more grated cheese. This is whopping heavy to lift when done so be careful putting it in the oven. I cover the dish before baking with aluminum (!) foil, and bake it about an hour at 375 degrees. I remove the foil for the last 15-20 minutes for the topping to lightly brown. I like to let it stand to set up, then maybe give it a rewarming. It stands in serving portions better if made ahead, refrigerated, and served the next day. This is a rich lasagna in flavor and cost of ingredients, but oh, so pleasing. We serve our big family and usually have a left-overs meal to enjoy ourselves. Best wishes if you try our favorite Lasagna dish! ~G

Here's a favorite that's a little different. It is from The Best of Bridge cookbooks:

Seafood Lasagne (Aunty Pasto's)

8 Lasagne noodles
2 Tbsp. butter
1 cup chopped onion
1 - 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups creamed cottage cheese
1 egg, beaten
2 Tbsp.chopped basil or 2 tsp. dried
salt and pepper to taste
2 - 10 oz. cans cream of mushroom soup
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup dry white wine
1 - 5 oz. can crab
1 lb. shelled deveined cooked shrimp
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese

Cook noodles according to package directions. Place 4 in 9" X 13" pan. Cook onion in butter. Add cream cheese, cottage cheese, egg, basil, and salt and pepper.
Spread 1/2 mixture over noodles. Combine soup, milk and wine. Stir in crab and shrimp. Spoon 1/2 mixture over cheese layer. Repeat all layers. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake, uncovered at 350F. for 45 minutes. Top with cheddar cheese, brown under broiler and let stand for at least 15 minutes before serving.
