Meat Sauce

2 pounds ground beef
8 ounces Crawfish or shrimp, pureed
1/2 cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup onion, chopped
1/3 cup celery, chopped fine
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped fine
2 cans (14 oz size) Italian style tomatoes and juice, chopped
2 cans (6 ounce size) tomato paste
1 can (8 oz size) tomato sauce
2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
1 package Shrimp Creole Mix
2 cups water
2 packages (10 oz size) Lasagna noodles

Cheese Sauce

1 package (16 oz size) Ricotta cheese
1 package (11 oz size) cream style cottage cheese
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped fine
1 1/2 teaspoon Creole seasoning
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup Parmesan cheese
2 pounds Mozzarella cheese, slices


Meat Sauce: To a large saucepan add olive oil and preheat. Add ground meat, pureed crawfish, onion and celery. Sauté until brown stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Stir in garlic and parsley, cook over low heat for 10 minutes.

Add next six ingredients to meat mixture. Blend thoroughly and cook over low heat until thick, about 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes.

While sauce is cooking prepare lasagna noodles according to package direction. Rinse with cool water and allow to drain.

Cheese Sauce: To suitable mixing bowl, add first six ingredients and blend thoroughly. Set aside.

Assembly: To a greased 15" x 20" x 2" or 2- 13" x 9" x 2" baking dish add in layers of 1/3 meat sauce, 1/3 of mozzarella cheese slices, and 1/3 of ricotta and cottage cheese mix, and cover with a layer of cooked lasagna noodles. Repeat layer steps until ingredients are depleted. Remember to cover with meat sauce and cheese. Bake in 350° F preheated oven for 30 minutes or until hot.
