Lasagna recipe I found online. I've made it several times and it's always a hit.


1 1/2 lb Ground Beef
1 tspn Garlic Powder
1/2 Small Onion; Diced
3 cloves Garlic; Minced
1 tspn Italian seasoning
Ricotta Mix
15 oz Ricotta cheese
2 large Eggs; Beaten
1/4 cup Milk
1/2 tspn Italian seasoning
8 oz Tomato Sauce
28 oz Spaghetti Sauce
16 oz Mozzarella/Provolone Cheese Blend; Shredded
9 Lasagna Noodles
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese; Grated

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cook ground beef, onion and garlic until meat is browned, then drain.

Add tomato sauce, spaghetti sauce, garlic powder and italian seasoning.

Simmer for 15-20 minutes, covered.

In a separate bowl coming ricotta cheese, eggs, milk and italian seasoning. Mix well.

Cook noodles for 1/2 the recommended time on the box.

Layer a 9x13 pan with a small amount of meat sauce (just enough so the noodles won't stick).

Layer 3 noodles across the sauce.

Cover noodles with 1/3 of meat sauce mixture.

Cover sauce with 1/3 shredded cheese.

Cover cheese with 1/2 ricotta mixture.


Cover with last 3 noodles.

Spread last 1/3 of meat sauce over noodles.

Cover sauce with remaining cheese.

Sprinkle last 1/3 of shredded cheese over sauce.

Sprinkle parmesan cheese over the top.

Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.

Take foil off and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until cheese is golden brown.


Once I only grabbed an 8oz bag of shredded cheese instead of 16 oz so I used sliced provolone, it turned out wonderful. Also, if you don't have a full house you might want to break these down into two smaller pans and freeze one. You can put it into the oven straight from the freezer, just adjust your baking time.

Classic Lasagna with Sheep's Milk Gouda

A variation on this recipe

"Bubbly, melty, and cozy. Those 3 words best describe this delicious recipe that Chef Nikki Cascone came up with to win the challenge. Why wouldn't she? Although meatless, the veggies and cheeses more than make up for the lack of protein. And it's tasty, too!" — Firebyrd Firebyrd

Tony's At Disney World Lasagna

A recipe that illustrates a similar technique

"A tasty and scrumptious lasagna made with ground beef and a variety of spices and cheese which gives it a rich taste. Until now, found only at Tony's in Disneyworld, a premier restaurant found in Tony's Town Square. The restaurant is a replica of Tony's which was the favorite dining spot of Lady and the Tramp." — Firebyrd Firebyrd

This was a pretty simple recipe, that turned out very well. Pay attention to directions, because I made a few mistakes when making it the first time. I will make it again and pay closer to the directions.

I could not locate ricotta cheese in store so I substituted parmesan cheese in the egg mixture and used ragu 5-cheese which includes ricotta cheese in the ingredients of my sauce along with ragu tomato and basil sauce. This turned out great!

I had the frozen half last night. You'll need to basically double the bake time.
