Like many of our other recipes, its amazingly simple! So delicious and simple in fact, you might not ever want to go back to making lasagna the traditional way again!

Ingredients:

Olive oil
1 9oz package of oven ready lasagna noodles*
1 24 oz jar of spaghetti sauce
1 bag of spinach
1 lb. of Italian sausage
2 8oz bags of mozzarella cheese
Garlic powder

*It is essential to have oven ready, or precooked lasagna noodles. If you are using regular lasagna noodles, you need to boil them before preparing the lasagna.

Instructions:

1. Brown the Sausage
Heat and grease your Dutch Oven. Use only enough oil to coat the bottom of the oven. Add in the Italian Sausage and cook until browned. Once cooked through, transfer the meat into another bowl and drain off the excess liquid.

2. Start Layering Start with a layer of sauce, adding a layer of noodles, more sauce, spinach, cheese, Italian seasoning and garlic. Repeat this layering until out of ingredients or Dutch Oven is full. Cook on a bed of hot coals, while also using 17 coals on top of the lid. Bake for 30 minutes.

3. Serve & Enjoy!

      Hi Redmond. To provide more specific troubleshooting information on your water issue we need the make, model, and year of your water heater. Most are a 6 gallon Atwood or Suburban water heater and you need to verify you have 12-volt DC power to the module board, then good LP pressure. This can be verified by turning on the stove top burner one at a time and make sure the flame stays tall and steady. Then turn on your furnace and see if it draws the flames down. If so, your pressure regulator is getting weak and can not supply multiple appliances. If all that is good, you can troubleshoot the water heater by turning it on, listen for the click of the gas valve, then the clicking of the spark ignitor, then if the flame starts but goes out. If the gas valve does not open, check the fuse in the module board. Same for the spark ignitor. If the spark attempts, but does not light, you will need to remove the burner assembly and clean it out with compressed air as it could be plugged with dirt or even spider webs.
      Thanks

    Just returned from up north with 27 degree temps in the morning. Our heatpump did not function well. With 3 units only one was able to produce hot air, the other two were cold. The monitor allows you to switch from electric to gas but still no warm air. Any suggestions appreciated. Plenty of propane and 50 amp hookup,

      Hello,

      Heat pumps don’t work well under 50 degrees, they work off of pulling “heat” from the outside air to boil the refrigerant and gives off the air inside the coach. The refrigerant boils at a low temperature, so 50 degrees will still work but below that it has trouble. When it is too cold outside, there is not enough heat for them to function. Most heat pumps won’t even turn on when there is more than a 20 degree difference from the temperature it is inside and set to the one you want. Heat pumps are used for cooler temps but once you get to freezing temps, you would have to use the propane furnace for heat if it is that cold. When you switched to the furnace, did it come on at all? Did it try to ignite but didn’t? Some thermostats have a delay in between turning off the heat pump and then turning on the furnace. If you could provide what symptoms you are experiencing with the furnace some more info on what RV you have, make/model/year I could look into how it is set up and what troubleshooting can be done.

      Thanks,

    Having problems with my “Super slide” Lippert in wall motor and track assemblies. Seems to jump a tooth somehow.

      Hello,

      I would check all of the gears, if there is a broken tooth then it can easily jump gears. This can happen from the wall being out of alignment or the unit being unlevel when operating the slides as well. It is possible there is something wrong with the actuator arm or assemblies being bent or a weld breaking but this is less common. I would inspect the gears and alignment of the room first and make sure everything looks good. After that, if everything looks OK make sure to lubricate everything properly and have someone inspect underneath while running the room and see if you can locate what might be causing the issue. Make sure to check the seals, if part of the wall is hanging up it can cause this to happen too.

      I hope this helps!
