Today I’m sharing a recipe from my mom! It’s her own creation of lasagna with ravioli instead of lasagna noodles and its delicious!

The layers go : sauce / ricotta / shredded cheese (we used colby jack) / ravioli / repeat!

My Grandmother grilled some fresh bread and made a delish fruit salad with cantaloupe, pineapple, kiwi, grapes, watermelon with orange juice and a little sugar.

It doesn’t serve the prettiest (when does lasagna ever stay in place), but it is insanely good for such a simple and filling meal.

Ingredients:
Olive oil for pan
Ground beef – 2lb
One green bell pepper

Directions:
1) In a large skillet brown the meat with salt, pepper and a little garlic salt
2) In a large pot, pour in a little olive oil and garlic (as much as you want for taste preference)
3) Pour in chopped veggies, cook until onions are translucent and add in tomatoes and let cook over medium-high, turn down to let simmer break up any whole tomatoes
4) Grate block of Colby jack
5) Pour meat into tomato mixture and let simmer for 30 minutes on medium high.
6) The layers go : sauce / ricotta / shredded cheese (we used colby jack) / ravioli / repeat!
