HBO's Flight of the Conchords has to be one of my favorite new shows. Each episode contains several spoof songs, and are always hilarious. The season just ended, but the songs are living on in my head. Recently I couldn't get the song, "I'm Not Cryin'" out of my head. Especially the line where Brett says, "I'm making a lasagna... for one."
All week long my thoughts have been plagued with individual lasagnas. No matter what I did, I couldn't get it out of my head. Over and over and over again, "I'm making a lasagna..." I think the only way I'll be able to get this song out of my head is to make myself a lasagna for one.

Lasagna For One
Inspired by Flight of the Conchords - From Razzle Dazzle
Editor's Note: This recipe is really straightforward and calls for canned spaghetti sauce. I imagine that's how Jemaine and Bret would make it, although Bret would definitely add additional chopped onions to his.
3 ounces lasagna noodles
dash of oregano
1 - 8 ounce can or 1 cup of spaghetti sauce with meat
1/2 cup cottage cheese
3 ounces sliced mozzarella cheese
dash of salt
dash of pepper
- Cook noodles according to package directions.
- Mix in small bowl, oregano, salt and pepper with spaghetti sauce.
- Alternate layers of noodles, cottage cheese, mozzarella cheese and sauce in small baking pan.
- Bake at 375F for 30 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
