  • Author: Heather l The Super Mom Life

Description

Two pounds of meat and nine cups of cheese are layered in between no boil lasagna noodles and marinara sauce, making this meal hearty, easy to make and super delicious.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 jars marinara sauce
  • 1 box oven-ready lasagna noodles (15 total)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb mild Italian sausage
  • 1/2 tsp each salt, pepper, oregano, garlic powder, basil
  • 15 oz ricotta cheese
  • 6 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 1/2 cups parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 tablespoon each fresh basil and fresh oregano, chopped finely

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 375°F. Grease a 13 x 9 inch baking dish and set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in a large pan and add beef and sausage together. Season with salt, pepper, oregano, garlic powder and basil. Stir and crumble until fully cooked. Drain and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, 1 cup of mozzarella, 1 cup of parmesan cheese, fresh basil and fresh oregano. Stir until combined. (step 1 and 2 in photos)
  • On the bottom of your baking dish, spread one cup of marinara sauce so that the entire bottom is covered as best as possible. (step 3 in photos)
  • Lay 4 sheets of no boil lasagna noodles on top of the sauce, slightly overlapping. (step 4 in photos)
  • Cover lasagna noodles with another cup of sauce. Makes sure noodles are totally covered – especially the corners. (step 5 in photos)
  • Using a small scoop, scoop out your cheese mixture and layer on top. (step 6 in photos)
  • Sprinkle a few handfuls of mozzarella cheese throughout. (forgot a picture of this step, oops)
  • Top with 1/3 of your meat. (step 7 in photos)
  • Lay 4 sheets of no boil lasagna noodles on top, slightly overlapping and press down gently. (step 8 in photos)
  • Repeat steps 5 through 8 again another two times. The final layer of noodles will only be 3 sheets (step 9 in photos)
  • Cover lasagna noodles with another cup of sauce. (step 10 in photos)
  • Separate 1 cup of mozzarella and set aside. Place the rest of the mozzarella on top of the lasagna. (step 12 in photos)
  • Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes.
  • When it’s done, remove foil and top with the rest of the mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Bake for 5 minutes and then broil for 3 minutes (uncovered).
  • Let rest for 15-20 minutes before serving.
