This is just a basic recipe, I have changed it up to include things like bacon, sausage, ricotta cheese, hot peppers, spinach, add whatever you like, make this and every recipe that you make, your own!I got this basic recipe from a cookbook I got from PBS for donating quite a few years back called "No Takeout Tonight". It was a supplement included with the book, that was printed on just a piece of paper with a thank you for donating, stuffed inside the book.
1 onion chopped
1½ sticks butter
8 c warm mashed potatoes
1 lb velveeta cheese, cubed
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 T parsley flakes (plus 2 T for top)
2 T salt
¼ c grated parmesan cheese
9 pcs cooked lasagna noodles
Preheat oven to 350°. Melt butter, add chopped onion.
Saute until onions are clear. Remove from heat and set aside.
Combine mashed potatoes, velveeta cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, parsley flakes, salt and ½ of butter and onion sauce. Stir with heavy wooden spoon until smooth (expect some velveeta not to melt).
Place 3 noodles on bottom of baking pan, spread ½ of potato mixture, layer 3 more noodles, spread remaining mixture, cover with last three noodles.
Pour remaining butter and onion sauce, sprinkle with parm cheese and parsley flakes.
Bake 35-40 mincut into squares like lasagna.
