Both Noah and I enjoy to cook, so I can't believe that I have never learned to make a lasagna.  Although it takes a bit of time, it is worth it!  I made mine in 2 separate dishes so that I could pop one in the freezer!  I had to share this delicious recipe!  I wish that I had taken a picture of it to show, but I hope that you enjoy it as much as we did!

Lasagna Recipe

2 Jars of Ragu Spaghetti Sauce (Garden Combination is yummy)
1 onion finely chopped
2 lbs. of ground chuck

Brown meat and onion. Drain. Add Ragu and simer for about 20-30 minutes

Mix Together:
1 ½ C small curd cottage cheese (I use low-fat)
2 eggs beaten
¾ C Parmesan Cheese
1t salt (I don’t use this much, if any)
½ t Black Pepper

3C Mozzarella Cheese (Do not add to above mixture)

Boil Lasagna Noodles – about 10 (I use wheat or multi grain)
Spray 13X9 Casserole Dish with Pam.
Put first layer of noodles side by side on the bottom of the dish.
Top with 1/3 of cheese mixture, meat/sauce mixture, and sprinkle with Mozzarella Cheese.
Repeat 2 more times. Top off with the remainder of the Mozzarella Cheese.
Bake at 350 for 1 – 1 ½ hours. (covered for 1 hour)

  1. I just made lasagna last night yummy. I learned a few years back you do not have to boil the noodles(only heats up the kitchen). I layer mine just like you only using noodles right out of the box. Tastes great! I believe in saving time. Lots of times I will make it one night, cover, put in fridge & cook the next night.

  2. Sounds wonderful! Y'all are culinary geniuses, are you not? :)

  3. On the Ragu, do you use the regular size jar or the 2lb jar??

  4. Oh great!! I was just thinking of how I needed a lasagna recipe!!! Can't wait to try it out!! Thanks!


I love to hear from you!
