Instructions
  1. For the noodles, you can do this several ways; 1. Use boil first noodles and cook until just before done and drain and use. 2. Use oven ready noodles but briefly boil them first to just soften them up and drain and use. 3. Make your own egg pasta noodles and precook for 30 seconds in boiling water and drain and use.
  2. Preheat your oven to 190 C. Grease a 9x13 baking dish with butter. Prepare the noodles as directed above.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the butter on medium heat and add the onion and season with salt and pepper to your liking. Cook until soft, 10-15 minutes.
  4. Place 4 noodles in an even layer on the bottom of the baking dish. Layer 1/2 of the onion over the noodles then layer 1/2 of the mashed potatoes over the onion, then 1/2 cup of cheese.
  5. Repeat with another layer of noodles, remaining onion, remaining potatoes, and 1/2 cup of cheese.
  6. Place the last noodles on the top and the remaining cheese.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Serve hot.
Recipe Notes

For the Cheddar cheese, figure about 180 Baht. For 6 servings, this is about 89 cents per serving.

Shortcut: Cottage Cheese.

Variants: Add cooked chopped bacon as another layer or add cooked chopped bacon mixed right into the mashed potatoes.

Instructions
  1. Brown ground sausage in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and mushrooms; cook 5 to 6 minutes over medium low heat. Add garlic and spinach and cook for 1 minute while stirring. Add chicken broth and simmer for 5 minutes. Add broken lasagna noodles, oregano, and basil then bring to low boil. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until the noodles are tender.
  2. Meanwhile in skillet over medium low heat melt butter then whisk in flour and continue cooking for 1 minute; whisking constantly. The butter/flour mixture should be bubbling. Slowly whisk in the milk until mixture is smooth and thickened; about 3 to 5 minutes. Turn off heat and slowly whisk in Parmesan cheese. If cheese is not melting place over very low heat and whisk constantly. When Parmesan is fully melted and mixture is creamy slowly add to soup mixture stirring it in. Serve.
Recipe Notes

The Parmesan cheese would cost about 180 Baht for 1 cup of grated cheese. Ground pork would cost about 26 Baht for 250 grams if making the sausage yourself. I have never seen bulk sausage, this would even be cheaper if you ground the pork yourself. For 4 servings, this is about $1.52 per serving.

Shortcut: Italian Sausage.

I have made this recipe many times now and it is delicious. Lasagna can be intimidating, but following a few shortcuts and you can make a tasty and delicious meal, that serves a lot! Many recipes call for the meat sauce as ground beef and Italian sausage, I am going to make the Italian sausage as I cook ground pork. Cottage cheese can be expensive if store bought, I am going to use the shortcut listed on this site. The most expensive part will be the Mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Not a $1 meal but you can feed a crowd. I made this on 10 April 2016 and took the photos. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

To Assemble
Servings: servings
Instructions
Meat Sauce
  1. Add a splash of olive oil to a large pot and heat, add onion and garlic, when translucent, add the meat and spices and mix well with the spatula (you are making a cheater Italian sausage. When cooked through and no longer pink, drain the fat, I use a colander for this, then return to the pot.
  2. Add the tomato paste and the chopped tomatoes, and about half of the tomato juice. On a light simmer, cook for about 20-30 minutes covered. If the sauce is too thick, add a bit of tomato juice retained from the can of tomatoes, not too much though. Adjust the sauce for salt and sugar during the cooking.
to Assemble
  1. Preheat your oven to 200 C.
  2. Now, take out a small handful of Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese and set aside, this is for the final layer. OR, as I do, I just use shred another 200 gram block of Mozzarella and add additional grated Parmesan cheese for use on the top.
  3. Mix the cottage cheese, remaining Mozzerella and Parmesan together with the beaten eggs and spices. If making the cottage cheese from the shortcut on my site, make 4 cups, meaning 4 liters of milk, vinegar stays the say in the recipe.
  4. Spoon just enough sauce into the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish. Then place the following layers:
  5. Noodles, you can overlap slightly, 1/3 of the cheese mixture. 1/3 of the meat sauce. Repeat with noodles, 1/3 the cheese, and 1/3 the meat sauce, repeat again with noodles, 1/3 cheese, and 1/3 meat sauce. Now sprinkle on the retained Mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses that you set aside. Photo shows the first layer added.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes, if getting dark, remove, if still light colored, continue for 40 minutes. Photo shows the completed dish before going into the oven.
  7. IMPORTANT, after removing from the oven, this needs to rest and cool a bit, as right out of the oven you have 200 degree cheese lava! Let it rest and it will firm up a bit.
  8. Serve with a salad or garlic bread to extend this meal. Enjoy.
Recipe Notes

Minced pork is about 112 Baht/kilo. Mozzarella cheese will run about 145 Baht/200 grams. Will need at least 2 blocks for 290 Baht. Parmesan will run about about 180 Baht/125 grams, will need 2 packs for 360 Baht. For the Cottage cheese, I cannot stress this enough, make it yourself from the shortcut listed on the site, this will work out to about 220 Baht.

This works out to about $1.70 per meal per person, over all, not bad! This is well below what you would find in any restaurant! The beauty of this dish, is that you made it yourself, it takes an effort and time spent in the kitchen, but the taste is well worth it, and you know exactly what is in it.

Variant: Top the entire lasagna with a single layer of sliced Provolone, Gouda, or Edam, yummy!

Shortcut: Cottage Cheese.

Cheese is the most costly item here, get 2 blocks of cheddar for 185 Baht/block, this comes out to about $1.35 for 8 servings. Not bad overall.
