Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 50 min
Ready in: 1 hour 20 min
Yields: 9 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 white onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 26 ounce jar spaghetti sauce
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 18 lasagna noodles
  • 1 15oz container ricotta cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons parsley (fresh), chopped
  • 3/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 12oz package mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  1. Cook your ground beef,oregano,garlic powder,and onion in a large skillet,using medium heat for about 10 minutes,or until beef is browned and onion is cooked. Add your spaghetti sauce and sugar,and leave it simmer until sauce is heated.
  2. Fill a large pot with water,and add a bit of salt. Bring to a boil and add your lasagna noodles. Remember to stir to keep them from sticking,and leave them cook for 8 to 10 minutes,until the noodles are firm,but cooked through,and then drain your water from the noodles.
  3. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch casserole dish.
  4. Mix together your egg,parsley,ricotta cheese,and 3/4 cup parmesan cheese in a bowl
  5. Take a lasagna noodle,and lay it flat. Use one layer of riccotta cheese mix,one layer pasta sauce,and one layer mozzarella cheese on top of the noodle. Lay another lasagna noodle over top of it. Then roll up the lasagna noodles,as you would a jelly-roll. Place roll in casserole dish. Repeat this process with the remaining noodles and ingredients,and spread your sauce on top of each roll,along with remaining mozzarella cheese,and parmesan cheese.
  6. Bake in the oven until cheese on top is melted,and bubbly
