Overnight Lasagna Bolognese

1 lb. beef stew meat 
1 C. small-diced onion 
1 1/2 C. thinly sliced mushrooms 
2 T.  minced garlic 
1/4 t. crushed red chile flakes 
1/4 t. dry whole leaf rosemary, crushed 
1 t. dry whole leaf oregano 
1 t. dry leaf basil 
1/2 C. red wine 
1 C. beef broth 
2 cans (6-ounces each) tomato paste
1 can (28-ounces) roma tomatoes in juice 
1 t. salt 


1 box (1 pound) lasagna noodles, 16 pieces
Olive oil 
1 container (15 ounces) ricotta cheese 
2 T. minced garlic 
1 egg 
4 C. coarsely grated mozzarella cheese 
1 C. shredded Parmesan cheese 

Place all of the sauce ingredients in a crock pot, cover and set on high. Cook 
for 8 hours. Stir sauce well, breaking apart meat and incorporating it into 
sauce. Refrigerate in a shallow pan to cool quickly. (I like to make the sauce 
in a crock pot the night before the lasagna construction, so the meat has at 
least 8 hours to simmer. That way it has plenty of time to cook fork-tender and 
then cool before assembly.) 

When ready to assemble the lasagna, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cook the 
lasagna noodles until just al dente. Drain, toss carefully with a little olive 
oil and spread out on a large baking sheet to cool. 

Meanwhile, mix together the ricotta, 2 tablespoons minced garlic and egg; 
reserve. Separately, mix mozzarella and Parmesan; reserve. 

Pan-spray a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Spread 1 cup of sauce in the bottom. Then 
assemble in this order, laying out in even layers: 4 pasta noodles, half of 
ricotta mixture, 4 noodles, half of sauce, half of mozzarella mixture, 4 
noodles, remaining ricotta mixture, remaining noodles, sauce and mozzarella 

Cover very loosely with a piece of foil, lightly sprayed with pan-spray so the 
cheese doesn't stick. Bake lasagna for about 30 to 40 minutes, until bubbly, 
then remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes, or until the top is lightly 

Let cool slightly, then cut into 8 squares for serving.
