This year, I am all decorated outside and inside, have made apple pies (with Cortland apples from Door County, Wisconsin), chocolate cake and brownies. I have also made what I call "kids lasagna," and barbecued ribs. Of course, we will have appetizers, salad, homemade feather rolls (from the Fannie Farmer Cookbook) and garlic bread. It's a lot of comfort food this weekend.
The kids lasagna was a recipe from my former neighbor (who has left us way too young) that all of the kids and grownups loved. It is quite a departure from the Italian version, but I feel I must share it with you since my granddaughter insisted I make it for Halloween:
1 lb. of ground beef
1 large can of crushed tomatoes
1 large can of tomato paste
1 medium onion
2 cloves of crushed garlic
1 teaspoon each of basil, oregano and parsley (fresh is better if you have
any left in the garden)
1 package of Swiss cheese, 12 oz or 16 oz
16 oz carton of small curd cottage cheese
16 oz package of no yolk egg noodles broad, cooked, rinsed and drained
Salt and pepper to taste
Parmesan Cheese shredded
