Why I Love This Recipe

This is the first time I have made Lasagna without pre-boiling the noodles. Oh my, what a life saver. I will never boil another lasagna noodle for as long as I shall live.

Anyway, I threw this together on Saturday night and let it sit in the fridge until Sunday when It came time to bake it.

Ingredients You'll Need

Lasagna noodles (uncooked)
1 can tomato sauce
1.5 tsp Italian seasoning
1 cup mozzarella cheese

Meat filling:
1.5 pounds ground beef
5 cloves garlic (minced or pressed)
2 tsp onion powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Red pepper flakes to taste
1 jar spaghetti sauce

Cheese filling:
1 (24 oz) container cottage cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
2 eggs (slightly beaten)
3 cloves garlic
3 tsp Penzey's Pasta Sprinkle (or Italian Seasoning)
Salt and pepper to taste


Add ground beef, garlic, S&P, onion powder, and red pepper flakes to skillet. Cook over medium heat until the ground beef is cooked through. Remove from heat and stir in spaghetti sauce.

While the ground beef is cooking add all the cheese filling ingredients to a medium bowl and mix to combine.

Add the Italian seasoning into the 1 can of tomato sauce.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly spray bottom of 9 x 13 casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.

1/2 can seasoned tomato sauce

Layer of noodles

1/2 cheese mixture

1/2 meat sauce
