Mary Connealy's Lasagna

From Mary Connealy:

"This one is a stand-by. It's what I take to new moms, to homes where there's been a death in the family. To people who are sick. . .and that doesn't include sick of cooking. I don't have time for all of them. Plus if you got food brought in for that, they'd have to bring it to me. Lasgna, a bag of salad, garlic toast. I take it raw. So they can freeze it. It is also very delicious. I give you permission to eat it yourself."


1 lb. hamburger (browned)

Stir into hamburger:
1 container cottage cheese
1 jar Prego spaghetti sauce

Lay uncooked lasagna noodles in bottom of 9 x 13 pan (3 or 4 noodles).
Add layer of sauce, and layer of 1 C. mozzarella cheese

Repeat for second layer, that's all I ever make. Three layers usually runs over the pan. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top of the last layer of mozzarella. Bake in 350 oven for 45 minutes to an hour or until cheese on top is browned. Serve with garlic bread and salad.

Use a smaller baking dish, make half-sized lasagna, then freeze extra sauce—with meat and cottage cheese in it, in the cottage cheese container for even quicker lasagna next time.

Garlic bread
Slice loaf of French bread the long way so it looks like a huge hotdog bun. Lay halves of bread side by side on a cookie sheet. Butter, sprinkle with garlic powder, sprinkle with mozzarella and/or parmesan cheese (I like both together) and bake the last fifteen minutes with the lasagna.

They'll never see eye-to-eye.

Buffy Lange has spent her life learning about, caring for, and protecting buffalo. She's landed the job of her dreams, managing a huge buffalo ranch in South Dakota. With stars in her eyes, she imagines all of the Midwest given over to free-ranging buffalo. To her, buffalo embody beauty, majesty, and strength. To Wyatt Shaw, however, the buffalo are a constant threat. Wyatt's ranch adjoins the Buffalo Commons and he watches in trepidation as its owner expands and rides roughshod over the local ranchers. Buffalo are wild, untamable, and dangerous. They present a hazard to man and beast.

When disaster strikes, Wyatt's worst fears are realized and Buffy can do nothing but clean up the mess. With one determined to rid the area of buffalo and the other determined to see them flourish, the dust seldom settles around these two. Will they find a common ground or are they destined to forever stand alone.
