How to make Lasagna from scratch

So since I made a crap load of cheese today  I decided to make lasagna from scratch with it. I had dehydrated a bunch of my tomatoes and still had some in the pantry and decided to use those to make my sauce

Image

so I dumped 3 cups of tomatoes into 6 cups of water

Image

I wanted to show how to use food storage to make a good fresh meal, so I used powdered garlic, dried mined onion and red pepper flakes

Image

I dumped in a cup of minced onions

Image

3 tablespoons of powdered garlic

Image

and several dashes of red pepper flakes

Image

I also had dehydrated some green peppers

Image

so I dumped in a 1/3 of a cup of them

Image

stirred well and set it on to simmer

Image

after letting it simmer and stirring for 3 hours, I broke out the hand mixer

Image

I left it a little chunky and added a little sugar to cut down on the acidity

Image

I dropped in a pound of our sweet sausage we had made from the pigs

Image

time to make the fresh pasta sheets, I grabbed some all purpose flour, alt, a little milk and 3 eggs from our chickens

Image

start out by putting 2 cups into the bottom of a bowl and creating a pocket in the middle of the flour

Image

crack the 3 eggs into the pocket

Image

put a 1/2 tsp of salt on the eggs and whisk the eggs up

Image

as your whisking, slowly work outwards pulling flour in a little at a time into the eggs, until you create a dough ball

Image

flour up your cutting board good and dump the ball of dough onto it

Image

proceed to knead the dough like bread dough for about 5 minutes, sprinkle with milk if it is to dry

Image

divide the dough into 4 balls

Image

sprinkle the cutting board with flour and flour up your rolling pin and start going to town, flour is your friend, you can not over flour, I repeat, flour is your friend, if you flip the dough over, flour the top first before you do, flour is your friend!

Image

I moved the dough sheet into the pan

Image

and grabbed my pork sauce off the stove and the two bowls of cheese curds I had made earlier, I had a nother sheet in the background ready to go

Image

I put on a layer of sauce

Image

then a layer of cheese curd

Image

and proceeded to layer 3 more sheets of pasta and sauce and cheese curds

Image

I stuck it into the oven at 375 for 1 hour and 15 minutes

Image

bon appetit
