Lasagna -- Easy & Delicious Family Meal

Ooeey, Goooey lasagna has always been one of my favorite dishes. I absolutely love the way the cheeses and the tomato sauce blend together with the pasta and create a flavor explosion in my mouth. My family loves lasagna just as much as I do fortunately, so I just prepared this dish last night. If you are a fellow lasagna lover (like me & a certain talking orange cat), then please try this easy and quick lasagna recipe. Your family will surely appreciate your efforts. I suggest serving this scrumptious lasagna with a garden salad and garlic bread.

Looks sooooo good!

Cook Time

Prep time: 45 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour 15 min
Yields: 8 to 12 portions


  • 1 lb ground beef, browned & NOT drained
  • 3/4 cup onions, diced
  • 2 tbsp oil, I prefer olive oil but vegetable or canola works well too.
  • 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 12 oz can tomato paste, I prefer Italian herb spices in mine.
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tbsp parsley, dried
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic or garlic powder, minced jar kind works well
  • 1/2 tsp oregano, dried
  • 16 oz ricotta cheese
  • 8 oz italian blend cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup parmesian cheese, fresh grated is best
  • 8 oz package lasagna noodles
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, optional
  • 3 bay leaves, optional

Making Your Delicious Lasagna

  1. Cook ground beef, chopped onions, and garlic in a large skillet until the beef is brown. Do NOT drain the ground beef.
  2. While cooking the beef mixture, fill a large pot 3/4 full with water and bring it to a boil. Once boiling add the lasagna noodles and cook until they are flexible, but not mushy. Drain and place cold water over the noodles to make them easier to work with.
  3. Add tomato sauce, tomato paste, water, oil, vinegar and dried ingredients to the beef mixture. Simmer over medium heat until the sauce thickens. (May be a little thin but that is ok. It cooks into noodles during the baking process.)
  4. Use a large casserole dish or baking pan to assemble the lasagna. Cover the bottom of the pan with a layer of sauce (about 1/2 to 3/4 cup). Then use four noodles placed side by side lengthwise for your second layer. Cover with about 1/3 of the Italian cheese blend and 1/3 of the parmesian cheese. Add another layer of sauce to cover everything and repeat the meat, cheese, sauce layers twice more. Your lasagna will have sauce and cheese on the top.
  5. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
