Fried Green Tomato Lasagna


4 large ripe tomatoes, peeled and chopped
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
5 tablespoons butter or margarine
4 large green tomatoes, cut into 1/4 inch slices
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

In a large saucepan, combine the first seven ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat; set aside.

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Dip green tomato slices in flour; brown in skillet on both sides. Remove to paper towels to drain. Spoon 3/4 cup tomato mixture into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2 in. baking dish.

Top with a third of the green tomatoes; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining tomato mixture and mozzarella cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbly. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

  2. G’Day! Veggiegardener,
    On a similar note, Fried chicken, homemade mashed potatoes, green beans, biscuits and corn on the cob is one of the best meals you can eat. Hmm! I’m getting hungry already! I remember when my mom use to cook big meals, I would sit in the kitchen with her and watch every thing she did. The smell of greens and cornbread just made me feel warm all over. My mom loved to cook and I love to watch her cook, she would bake cakes, pies, cookies, and more. As I got older I soon began to learn how to cook. I would cook chicken, macaroni and cheese, lasagna, bake cakes, and crabs anything you could think of I’ve tried and I’m still exploring with foods. I love a challenge and I love trying out new things. One of my favorites to cook is fried green tomatoes, I think they make a perfect appetizer or sidedish.
    Catch you again soon!
