    Decades after I first learned to make them, Impossible Pies still intrigue me.

    You know what they are, right? A kind of crustless quiche in which flavorful filling ingredients are piled into a deep pie dish and a milky-eggy batter is poured over. What emerges from the oven is definitely ready for prime time — kid-friendly, but interesting enough for adults, too.

    Over the years, we’ve noshed on…

    Today we’re submitting to our craving for comforting, meaty lasagna, using easy, versatile ground beef. For this dish, I prefer a leaner mix – 93% lean, 7% fat, since we won’t be draining it. It browns quickly in a skillet, allowing us to get on with the recipe efficiently.

    The classic flavor of lasagna in a savory pie makes a satisfying #WeekdaySupper. Serve with a fresh green salad, some crusty bread and fruit. Mangia!

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound leanest ground beef
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1 teaspoon dried basil
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
    • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste (Italian flavored if available)
    • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Italian blend cheese (or use shredded mozzarella), divided use
    • 1/2 cup small curd cottage cheese (non-fat is fine)
    • 1 cup milk
    • 2 eggs
    • 2/3 cup Bisquick (I prefer Bisquick Heart Smart variety)
    • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
    • Freshly ground pepper
    • Crushed red pepper (optional)

    Directions

    1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 10-inch deep dish pie dish with nonstick spray and set aside. (If you are serving at the table out of this dish, choose your fancy pie dish!)
    2. Cook beef in a large nonstick skillet. While meat is cooking, add oregano, basil, marjoram, onion powder and garlic powder. Cook until beef is no longer pink. Turn heat off and mix tomato paste into beef.
    3. Spread beef mixture into prepared pie dish. Top with 1 cup of the shredded cheese. Dollop cottage cheese on top.
    4. Whirl milk, eggs, baking mix, Parmesan and a few grindings of black pepper in blender for 15-30 seconds. Pour egg mixture evenly over layers in pie dish and sprinkle with a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes if your family likes a bit of spice. If not, don’t.
    5. Bake 35 minutes, then sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella and bake another 5-7 minutes to melt cheese.
    6. Serves 6.
