Impossible Lasagna Pie
The "Impossible Pies" from Bisquick were very popular in the late 70's and early 80's. I still enjoy them today but often don't think about them unless leafing through my recipes.
This is an easy and delicious dinner that resembles a quiche.
Serve with a salad and, of course, garlic bread.
1/2 cup small curd cottage cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 pound ground beef, cooked, drained
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
1 cup milk
2/3 cup Bisquick Baking Mix
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease 10-inch pie plate.
Layer cottage cheese and Parmesan cheese in plate. Mix cooked beef, 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese, the oregano, basil and tomato paste; spoon evenly over top. Beat milk, eggs, baking mix, salt and pepper until smooth, 15 seconds in blender on high or 1 minute with hand beater. Pour into plate. Bake until golden brown and knife inserted in center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes.
Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cool 5 minutes.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
