If you like meatless lasagna with lots of cheese, then you'll love this ;-)



Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cook lasagna noodles al dente according to directions and drain.

Meanwhile, mix red pepper flakes with tomato sauce. Spoon a portion of the sauce in to the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Place three of the cooked noodles over the sauce and sprinkle a portion of the mozzarella, cheddar and parmesan over the noodles.


Repeat layering of sauce, noodles and cheese according to the amount of noodles chosen. Be sure to finish with a cheese layer.

Bake in oven for 30 to 45 minutes until cheese is bubbly and golden.

This is a long standing family favorite of everyones! I call this our comfort food.


  • My homemade sauce* or jar sauce- about 8 cups
  • 1 - 1 1/12 lb very lean ground beef and/or sausage
  • 1 box oven ready lasagna noodles (you will need 12 pieces)
  • 32 ozs. Ricotta cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 8oz. bags mozzarella shredded cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Romano & Parmigiana cheese / plus 1/2 cup for ricotta mix
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 9 x 13 foil pan or a baking pan
  • Large sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil




  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Heat sauce in pan. Cook and saute' the ground beef and sausage. Drain and add to sauce. Let the sauce simmer.
  3. Using a large bowl, add the ricotta, eggs, 1/2 cup of grated cheese, 4 ozs. of mozzarella cheese (1/2 bag), all seasonings listed, and mix very well until everything is well blended.
  4. Now you are ready to put your lasagna together. Put 3 ladles of meat sauce in the pan.

  6. Lay out 3 pieces of lasagna noodles.
  7. Spoon half of your ricotta mixture onto the 3 noodles. Then evenly spread.
  8. Next step is a layer of 3 noodles, topped with 3 ladles of meat sauce. Then top the sauce with 4 ounces of mozzarella and sprinkle with grated cheese.
  9. Repeat with the other half of the ricotta mix.

  11. Last will be 3 ladles of meat sauce, a full bag of mozzarella cheese, a very generous amount of grated cheese.
  12. Carefully make a tent cover over the pan, so the foil does not pull the cheese off and seal the edges tightly.
  13. Bake for 25-35 minutes, let sit for 1 hour before cutting. I cut my lasagna down the middle both ways, then 4 ways the short side and 6 the long way. You will get 24 good size pieces. Enjoy:)

I like this lasagna recipe especially because it does not contain cottage cheese. I definitely prefer my lasagna without. This is very good and easy to make!

Peel zucchini in strips with a cheese knife. Salt the zucchini strips and lay them between paper towels to drain excess moisture for 30 minutes.

In high school our home economics class put out a cookbook of our mothers' recipes. I got this from there and have been using it ever since.


I haven't seen this recipe on this site, so wanted to share.

The best lasagne recipe I have ever tried (and I have tried many) is the one on the Barilla lasagne noodle box. The noodles are the no cook type that you put into the pan dry, and they soak up the sauce and soften as they bake. So easy. I also vary it by cooking up Italian sausages, chill them, and slice very thinly, using them as a layer.

Quick Fix Lasagna

5 cups spaghetti sauce
1 box (8 oz.) Whole Wheat Lasagna
1 lb. Ricotta or cottage cheese
8 oz. Mozzarella cheese, shredded
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a 13x9x2-inch baking dish, spread 1 cup of the sauce; arrange a layer of uncooked lasagna; top with 1 1/3 cup sauce, 1/2 of the Ricotta, 1/3 of the Mozzarella, and 1/3 of the Parmesan cheese. Repeat, gently pressing lasagna pieces into cheese mixture below. End with a final layer of lasagna; pour remaining sauce over, making sure all lasagna pieces are covered with sauce; top with remaining Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Bake 45 to 55 minutes until lightly browned and bubbling. Allow to stand 15 minutes; cut into squares to serve.

Serves 6 to 8

Note: For health reasons I prefer whole wheat noodles and pasta. I also make my own spaghetti sauce in place of the store bought brands.

My mother makes slow cooker lasagna. Cook up your meat and onions in a pan and drain any grease. In your slow cooker put a little of the meat mixture in bottom and top with spaghetti sauce. Then put no cook noodles in. Just break them and put them in a layer. Add your cheese (Ricotta or cottage cheese mixed with mozzarella). Then keep layering until done and top with the rest of the mozzarella. Turn on crock pot on high for 3 hours. I love this recipe because if you have a small, large or normal sized crock pot it can be made in any kind.

Many years ago I had a very simple recipe for Lasagna which ended with cheese squares on top and had tomato paste in the filling. I was wondering if anyone has a copy like this recipe?
