- 4 cans crush tomatoes (28 oz. cans)
- 3 Tbsp dried basil
- 1/4 tsp thyme
- 2 tsp dried rosemary (not powder)
- 2.5 tsp kosher salt
- 1 Tbsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp dried crushed marjoram
- Melt together oil, butter and garlic paste to infuse the garlic flavor into the oil. Brush over sliced veggies and fire roast the veggies until charred.
- Olive oil and season ribeye steak with salt and pepper, and sear over direct high heat for about 2 minutes per side.
- Slice vegetables length wise in small strips. Slice steak across the grain into thin slices.
- Add sliced vegetables and steak into a large pan and set aside.
- Combine 2 cups alfredo sauce with one teaspoon of corn starch in a mixing bowl. Add in 6 cups of marinara and mix well.
- In the pan of vegetables and steak, add in a little bit of grated parmesean, diced mozzarella and a thin layer of the sauce mixture.
- Mix together everything in the pan well.
- Butter a casserole dish, and begin assembling lasagna in the pan, starting with a layer of sauce.
- Layer on lasagna noodles, followed by steak and vegetable mixture, some parmesan and mozzarella, and a layer of sauce.
- Layer more lasagna noodles and follow the same layering order until you reach the top of the casserole dish.
- For the final layer, top the noodles with sauce and a layer of mozzarella and parmesean.
- Cover lasagna with foil and bake at 350°F for about 20 minutes.
- Remove foil and finish baking uncovered for 5-10 minutes, until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling.
- Allow lasagna to set up for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
- Plate, top with chopped Basil, and enjoy!
- In a sauce pan set over low to medium-low heat, begin melting diced butter with the heavy cream, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and salt. Allow the mixture to cook for 2 to 3 minutes, reducing the heavy cream.
- Once the cream is reduced, add the basil and nutmeg, cooking for another minute or so.
- Now, turn the burner to low and begin stirring in the parmesan cheese until it is all just melted and incorporated.
- Remove from the fire, and the sauce is ready to be incorporated into your recipe!
- Saute the first six ingredients in a large sauce pan set over a medium to medium-high burner (about 8 to 10 minutes).
- Add in tomato paste and brown sugar, lower the fire to medium-low. Stir well.
- Deglaze pan with red wine, and add in crushed tomatoes.
- Allow the sauce to come up to a boil for about 10 minutes.
- Add in dry spices, stir and cover for 3 minutes.
- After 3 minutes, taste sauce and adjust to taste. Tomatoes range in flavor, so adjusting seasoning at this point is important.
- Simmer sauce for 15 minutes, remove from fire and add to recipe!
