National Lasagna Day

In celebration of National Lasagna Day, I wanted to share another one our our favorite Lasagna recipes. My family enjoys Lasagna and is always asking for seconds. This is an easy recipe for busy families and could be made on a meal planning day and frozen.

Messy Lasagna


1 pound ground beef

1/2 pound Italian sausage links, casings removed

1/2 cup onioned, chopped

2 garlic cloves, pressed

3 cups , 2 ounces  (26 ounces) marinara sauce (homemade is better and can be made on your meal planning day)

4 eggs

1 32 ounce container ricotta cheese (can substitute with cream cheese)

2 cups (8 ounces) mozzerella cheese

1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

2 Tablespoons fresh parsley

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 16 ounce package lasagna noodles

Extra parmesan cheese for topping


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large 8 quart stockpot, bring water to a boil. Cook lasagna noodles according to package instructions.

In a large saucepan, heat oil. Add onion, garlic, beef and sausage, cooking over medium heat until meat mixture is no longer pink.

Add sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 25-30 minutes.

In a 2 quart mixing bowl, lightly beat eggs with whisk. Add ricotta (or cream cheese & cottage cheese), parsley, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.

To assemble lasagna, place 2 Tablespoons of sauce on the bottom of a rectangular baker/dish. Top with meat mixture. Spoon ricotta mixture over sauce. Sprinkle mozzerella cheese over ricotta mixture. Repeat layers. Top with Parmesan cheese. Cover with foil.

Bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until cheese on top is slightly brown. Serve.

*Recipe Note: If frozen, cook for 45-50 minutes.
