Killer Noms Wild Game Recipes and Techniques

 

Baseline quantities are for a standard 3qt lasagna pan (9" x 13"). Adjust accordingly if using a larger pan, such as a 5 quart (11"x15")

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Lasagna noodles ( — Fresh is fantastic if you can find or make it. Some folks swear by "ready to bake" noodles. I'm not a fan. If you use them, be sure your sauce is liquidy - they need to absorb liquid.)
  • 1 large diced onion

  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme ( " ")
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary ( " ")
  • 1/2 tsp fennel seeds ( — Crush them a bit.)

  • 1 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 Bay Leaf
