Looking for a few homemade recipes....

Do any of you wonderful ladies have recipes for the following items?

Lasagna (sp?)
Meatballs
Chicken Noodle Soup - I do have a crockpot that I can use for this
Spaghetti Sauce
Pizza Sauce - or do you just use your spaghetti sauce?
Biscuts
Pizza Crust

That's all that I can think of at the moment. I'd really like to get into making certain things in advance & freezing them. So anything else that you have that can be made ahead of time & frozen, I'm all for. Thanks Ladies!!

Re: Looking for a few homemade recipes....

Lasagna
1 lb. italian sausage
8 oz. mozzarella cheese
1 tub ricotta cheese
1/4 c. parmesan cheese
lasagna noodles
spaghetti sauce

Brown the sausage, drain. Mix sausage, ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, and about 2/3 of the mozz cheese in bowl. In pan (I use a 9x13) put a thin layer of sauce on bottom, top with uncooked noodles, spread meat and cheese mixture over noodles, add another layer of sauce, layer of noodles, layer of sauce. Cover and cook 1 hour at 375. Remove foil, add remaining mozz cheese. Let stand 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
*I have also assembled this and froze it. I did not bake it before I froze it. I just take it out of the freezer and pop it in the oven for about 1 hour 15 minutes. It turns out great!

Re: Looking for a few homemade recipes....

I know you wanted a biscuit mix, but I have a recipe for a biscuit master mix which is basically the same thing as Bisquick. Here it is.
Biscuit Master Mix
10 c flour
1/3 c baking powder
1/4 c sugar
1 T salt
2 c shortening that does not require refrigeration
In a large bowl combine dry ingredients. Cut in shortening til mixture resemble coarse crumbs. Store in large sealed container or ziploc bag at room temperature for up to 6 weeks. Makes 12 cups.

Biscuits
2 c master mix
1/2 c milk
Mix master mix and milk, stirring just until dough follows fork around bowl. On a lightly floured counter knead dough 10 to 12 times. Pat out flat or use a rolling pin to 1/2 inch thick. Cut dough with floured biscuit cutter to make round biscuits, or cut into wedges with a knife. Place on baking sheet and bake 10-12 minutes at 450.

Pancakes
2 c master mix
2 eggs
1 c milk
In a mixing bowl slightly beat eggs. Stir milk into eggs. Add master mix stirring until blended, but still slightly lumpy. Pour about 1/2 c batter onto hot griddle. Cook until golden, turning to cook other side.

Re: Looking for a few homemade recipes....

Spaghetti / Lasagna / Pasta sauce

1 lb lean ground beef
1 large onion chopped
5-6 cloves garlic chopped
1-2 green pepper chopped
1 tablespoon basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
2 tablespoons sugar
2 large cans crushed tomatoes

Cook beef, onions, garlic, and peppers in a stockpot. Add the crushed tomatoes and seasonings and simmer for a couple of hours. I like to put it in the crockpot too for 4-6 hours on low. It seems the flavor gets better the longer it is cooked.

Meatballs

2 lbs ground beef
1 egg
1 cup rolled oats (more or less depending on how gooey your mixture is)
1 Tbsp parsley
1 tsp salt
a couple shakes of pepper
a few shakes of Steak Spice (we use Montreal Steak Spice)

mix it all together by hand, then roll into whatever size meatballs you would like, put in a baking dish and bake in a 350 F oven for 30 mins or so until they are done. They can be frozen and added to spaghetti, sweet and sour sauce or whatever

Dumb question.....what kind of flour do you use? All purpose or self rising?
