You can prepare a homemade diet for your pet as easily as for your family. These pet recipes will help keep your family’s furry, best 4-legged companions happy and healthy. Here are a few of my personal pet tried-and-true kitchen creations offering dogs and cats five-star, lip smacking-good nourishment. They’ll thank you for years to come and be barkin’ and purrin’ for more.
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lb ground round beef
5 cups tomato sauce
4 tbsp chopped fresh Italian parsley
3½ cups ricotta cheese
1 cup chopped cooked spinach, drained
¼ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 tbsp dried oregano
¾ tsp ground nutmeg
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
8 lasagna noodles, cooked until not quite tender

Note: For individual frozen portions, cut the baked lasagna into 8 pieces, placed in freezer containers with lids. Freeze only when cool. To reheat, defrost, cover with aluminum foil to bake at 350° F for 20 minutes.
