Lasagna is always a hit dish in our household. It’s one of my favorite Italian dishes but you’d be surprised how sporadic I make lasagna for dinner. I mean it’s not that hard unless perhaps you’re making your own Pappardelle noodles for it. Now that would take a little bit more time than usual. When getting the ingredients for this Beef And 3-Cheese Lasagna I found a box of oven-ready noodles which I figured would be great to try out. I’ve read lasagna recipes before that opt for not boiling the pasta but I’ve always been afraid to try that way. Since the box already says it’s oven-ready I figured I might as well it now. The outcome was successful and of course a scrumptious lasagna that got everybody excited as soon as I took it out of the oven.



  • 1 boz oven-ready lasagna noodles
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 can/jar spaghetti sauce of your choice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 15oz ricotta cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • sprinkle of dried basil
  • sprinkle of dried oregano
  • sprinkle of garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar optional


  • In a pot, brown the ground beef in medium heat. Discard the grease. Pour in the spaghetti sause then sprinkle with dried basil, dried oregano, garlic powder, salt ang black pepper. The tbsp of sugar is optional. Stir everything together and simmer until it boils.
  • While the sauce is simmering, slightly beat the egg in a bowl. Then add the ricotta cheese, cottage cheese, 1 cup of the shredded cheese, sprinkles of dried basil, dried oregano, and dried garlic. Stir everything together until well-combined. Preheat the oven to 355°
  • To assemble the lasagna, start with some of the meat sauce in the bottom of the pan, then lasagna noodles, cheese mixture, and some of the meat sauce. Repeat the process. Top with the remaining shredded cheese. Cover the pan with double foil then stick it in the oven to bake for an hour.
  • After baking, let it stand in the counter for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

Serve with salad greens. Have a slice or two.
