Ingredients

How to make it

  • Prepare lasagna noodles as directed on package and lay out in a single layer on waxed paper so noodles won’t stick together as they cool.
  • Cook meat and onion in large pan until almost done – I like to slightly undercook the meat so it doesn’t dry out so much during the baking time.
  • Reserve 2 cups spaghetti sauce and set aside; pour remaining sauce into the cooked meat/onion mixture and stir to blend. If I’m using a prepared spaghetti sauce rather than homemade, I like to add the additional seasonings of sugar and garlic powder, but this is optional – you do not have to add them, or add your own seasoning blend to personalize your sauce to your tastes.
  • Prepare the ricotta filling by lightly beating the eggs, then add all other ingredients and stir to blend well.
  • In the bottom of a lasagna pan (or a 9x13 pan), spread 1 cup of the reserved spaghetti sauce.
  • Top sauce with a layer of cooked lasagna noodles.
  • Spread ½ of ricotta cheese filling over noodles.
  • Top with ½ of the meat sauce.
  • Repeat layers: noodles, remaining ricotta filling, remaining meat sauce.
  • End with a final layer of noodles spread with the remaining 1 cup of reserved spaghetti sauce.
  • Cover with mozzarella cheese, then shaved parmesan cheese.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 60 to 75 minutes, until gently browned on top and bubbly.around the edges.

    I made this last week and it was wonderful.. THe kids really liked the sausage in it. I usually just use ground beef so this was a great change. I liked all the cheese. Thanks again for feeding us!

    D-E-L-I-S-H!!!!!!!!! Great recipe. The sugar is the key, not alot of people know that, all canned sauce needs doctored up. I make this exactly the same except, I chop up a zucchini, mushrooms and some peppers & garlic, and cook it with the meat mixture, Krum you a wonderful cook!*!*!*! Now I'm on my way to check out Grandma's banana cream pie.....:)

    When the kids we used to have were still around my wife made la-ZIG-nee fairly often. A great family meal. We all loved it.
    Yours looks just as simple yet a bit more authentic perhaps. Don't tell the wife.

    Hey krum. Yummy looking photo. I agree Lasagna is an easy meal and for some reason I do not make it very often either. I will have to start and package some in the freezer for the family to grab on the way to work or quick lunch. Thanks for the recipe. Take care-Rachell
