Categories     World Cuisine Recipes     European     Italian

Time 1h35m

Yield 8

Number Of Ingredients 11

12 whole wheat lasagna noodles
1 pound lean ground beef
2 cloves garlic, chopped
½ teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano, or to taste
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 (16 ounce) package cottage cheese
2 eggs
½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 ½ (25 ounce) jars tomato-basil pasta sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, add the lasagna noodles a few at a time, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 10 minutes. Remove the noodles to a plate.
  • Place the ground beef into a skillet over medium heat, add the garlic, garlic powder, oregano, salt, and black pepper to the skillet. Cook the meat, chopping it into small chunks as it cooks, until no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Drain excess grease.
  • In a bowl, mix the cottage cheese, eggs, and Parmesan cheese until thoroughly combined.
  • Place 4 noodles side by side into the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking pan; top with a layer of the tomato-basil sauce, a layer of ground beef mixture, and a layer of the cottage cheese mixture. Repeat layers twice more, ending with a layer of sauce; sprinkle top with the mozzarella cheese. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the casserole is bubbling and the cheese has melted, about 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake until cheese has begun to brown, about 10 more minutes. Allow to stand at least 10 minutes before serving.

Easy classic lasagne image

Kids will love to help assemble this easiest ever pasta bake with streaky bacon, beef mince, a crème fraîche sauce and gooey mozzarella

Provided by Angela Boggiano

Categories     Dinner, Lunch, Main course, Pasta, Supper

Time 1h15m

Number Of Ingredients 15

1 tbsp olive oil
2 rashers smoked streaky bacon
1 onion , finely chopped
1 celery stick, finely chopped
1 medium carrot , grated
2 garlic cloves , finely chopped
500g beef mince
1 tbsp tomato purée
2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp clear honey
500g pack fresh egg lasagne sheets
400ml crème fraîche
125g ball mozzarella , roughly torn
50g freshly grated parmesan
large handful basil leaves , torn (optional)


  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Use kitchen scissors to snip the bacon into small pieces, or use a sharp knife to chop it on a chopping board. Add the bacon to the pan and cook for just a few mins until starting to turn golden. Add the onion, celery and carrot, and cook over a medium heat for 5 mins, stirring occasionally, until softened.
  • Add the garlic and cook for 1 min, then tip in the mince and cook, stirring and breaking it up with a wooden spoon, for about 6 mins until browned all over.
  • Stir in the tomato purée and cook for 1 min, mixing in well with the beef and vegetables. Tip in the chopped tomatoes. Fill each can half full with water to rinse out any tomatoes left in the can, and add to the pan. Add the honey and season to taste. Simmer for 20 mins.
  • Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. To assemble the lasagne, ladle a little of the ragu sauce into the bottom of the roasting tin or casserole dish, spreading the sauce all over the base. Place 2 sheets of lasagne on top of the sauce overlapping to make it fit, then repeat with more sauce and another layer of pasta. Repeat with a further 2 layers of sauce and pasta, finishing with a layer of pasta.
  • Put the crème fraîche in a bowl and mix with 2 tbsp water to loosen it and make a smooth pourable sauce. Pour this over the top of the pasta, then top with the mozzarella. Sprinkle Parmesan over the top and bake for 25-30 mins until golden and bubbling. Serve scattered with basil, if you like.

Classic Italian Lasagna image

Assemble a Classic Italian Lasagna with Giada De Laurentiis' recipe from Everyday Italian on Food Network. A homemade bechamel sauce makes a big difference.

Provided by Giada De Laurentiis

Categories     main-dish

Time 1h15m

Yield 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 24

5 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus 2 tablespoons for the lasagna
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups whole milk at room temperature
Pinch freshly grated nutmeg
1 1/2 cups tomato sauce, recipe follows
Salt and white pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound ground chuck beef
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 pounds ricotta cheese
3 large eggs
1 pound lasagna sheets, cooked al dente
2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
3 cups shredded mozzarella
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 (32-ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
2 dried bay leaves
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, optional


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Bechamel sauce:
  • In a 2-quart pot, melt 5 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. When butter has completely melted, add the flour and whisk until smooth, about 2 minutes. Gradually add the milk, whisking constantly to prevent any lumps from forming. Continue to simmer and whisk over medium heat until the sauce is thick, smooth and creamy, about 10 minutes. The sauce should be thick enough to coat the back of wooden spoon. Remove from heat and add the nutmeg and tomato sauce. Stir until well combined and check for seasoning. Set aside and allow to cool completely.
  • In a saute pan, heat extra-virgin olive oil. When almost smoking, add the ground beef and season with salt and pepper. Brown meat, breaking any large lumps, until it is no longer pink. Remove from heat and drain any excess fat. Set aside and allow to cool completely.
  • In a medium sized bowl, thoroughly mix the ricotta and eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Into the bottom of a 13 by 9-inch baking dish, spread 1/3 of the bechamel sauce. Arrange the pasta sheets side by side, covering the bottom of the baking dish. Evenly spread a layer of all the ricotta mixture and then a layer of all the spinach. Arrange another layer of pasta sheets and spread all the ground beef on top. Sprinkle 1/2 the mozzarella cheese on top of the beef. Spread another 1/3 of the bechamel sauce. Arrange the final layer of pasta sheets and top with remaining bechamel, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Cut the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter into 1/4-inch cubes and top lasagna.
  • Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place lasagna dish on top, cover and put on the middle rack of the oven and bake until top is bubbling, about 30 minutes. Remove cover and continue to bake for about 15 minutes.
  • In a large casserole pot or Dutch over, heat oil over medium high heat. Add onion and garlic and saute until soft and translucent, about 5 to 10 minutes. Add celery and carrots and season with salt and pepper. Saute until all the vegetables are soft, about 5 to 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and bay leaves and simmer uncovered on low heat for 1 hour or until thick. Remove bay leaves and check for seasoning. If sauce still tastes acidic, add unsalted butter, 1 tablespoon at a time to round out the flavors.
  • Add 1/2 the tomato sauce into the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth. Continue with remaining tomato sauce.
  • If not using all the sauce, allow it to cool completely and pour 1 to 2 cup portions into freezer plastic bags. This will freeze up to 6 months.


Classic Lasagna image

While not a 30-minute meal, this lasagna is quicker and more straightforward than most. If you're in a real time crunch, use your favorite jarred red sauce. For greater success with the lasagna noodles, which have a tendency to stick together, boil them in the largest pot possible or work in batches - they need as much water as possible to move freely so they don't clump. This lasagna can be assembled, baked and refrigerated up to five days ahead, or frozen up to a month ahead if wrapped tightly.

Time 2h

Yield 6 to 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 16

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound Italian sausage, sweet or hot (optional), casings removed
1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 (28-ounce) can whole, peeled tomatoes
1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
Kosher salt
1 1/2 pounds fresh mozzarella, grated or shredded into small pieces
16 ounces (2 cups) whole milk ricotta
1 cup coarsely grated Parmesan, plus more for sprinkling on top (optional)
1/4 cup heavy cream
Freshly ground pepper
1 pound dried lasagna noodles (not the no-boil variety)
Olive oil


  • Make the sauce: Heat oil in a large, heavy bottomed pot over medium heat. Add sausage, if using, and cook, stirring occasionally, until it's starting to brown but not yet crisp, about 5 minutes.
  • Add onion and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is totally softened and translucent (without letting it brown), 8 to 10 minutes. Add tomato paste and continue to cook, stirring until the tomato paste has turned a deeper brick red color, tinting the oil and onions a fiery orange color, about 2 minutes.
  • Using your hands, crush the whole tomatoes into smaller, bite-size pieces and add them and the crushed tomatoes, stirring to scrape up any bits from the bottom of the pot. Fill one of the tomato cans halfway with water and add it to the pot. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomato sauce has thickened and flavors have come together, 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Make the lasagna: Heat oven to 375 degrees and set a large pot of salted water to boil.
  • Set aside 1 cup mozzarella. In a medium bowl, combine remaining mozzarella, ricotta, 1 cup Parmesan and cream; season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Cook lasagna noodles in the large pot of salted boiling water until just softened (before they are even aldente), about 4 minutes. Drain and separate any noodles that are trying to stick together, slicking them with a bit of olive oil to prevent them from sticking further.
  • Spoon a bit of sauce on the bottom of a 3-quart baking dish and top with a layer of noodles, avoiding any heavy overlap.
  • Top with about 1 ¼ cups of sauce, and dollop ¼ of the cheese mixture over. Top with another layer of noodles and repeat three more times, ending with the last of the noodles (depending on size of the noodle/shape of the baking dish, you may have a few extra noodles) and the last of the sauce. Top with reserved 1 cup mozzarella and more Parmesan, if you like.
  • Cover loosely with aluminum foil and place baking dish on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet (to prevent any overflow from burning on the bottom of your oven).
  • Bake until pasta is completely tender and cooked through and sauce is bubbling up around the edges, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove foil and increase temperature to 450 degrees. Continue to bake until lasagna is golden brown on top with frilly, crispy edges and corners, another 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool slightly before eating.

Provided by DrGaellon

Categories     Cheese

Time 2h20m

Yield 8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 21

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 lb ground beef
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 (28 ounce) can whole canned tomatoes
1/2 cup white wine or 1/2 cup dry vermouth
1 teaspoon anchovy paste (optional) or 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (optional)
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 bay leaves
ground black pepper
1 egg
1 lb ricotta cheese (homemade if you can, about 1 pt)
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
12 no-boil lasagna noodles (about 1/2 lb)
1 lb low-moisture mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 4 c)
1 cup grated parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350°F Heat olive oil in a large skillet until shimmering. Add onion and saute until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add beef and saute until pinkness is gone. Drain and discard excess fat. Make a space in the center of the pan and add tomato paste; stir the paste around the open space until it begins to brown, then stir in meat and onions.
  • Drain tomatoes; pour the juice into a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Boil the juice until syrupy. Process the tomatoes in a blender or with a stick blender until fairly smooth. Add tomatoes and boiled juice to drained beef and onion, along with wine, anchovy paste, basil, oregano, thyme, bay leaves, salt and pepper. Simmer gently, uncovered, 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until flavors blend. Remove and discard bay leaves, and set sauce aside.
  • Beat egg lightly. Add ricotta, basil and parmesan cheese and stir well to combine.
  • Spray a 13x9x3 pan with non-stick cooking spray (13x9x2 will probably boil over!). Spread 1/3 cup of sauce across bottom of pan and top with 3 lasagna noodles. Spread 1/2-3/4 c sauce, 3/4 c ricotta, 1 c mozzarella and 1/4 c parmesan (in that order) across noodles. Repeat this a total of 3 times, using 9 noodles. Place the last 3 noodles on top. Top with remaining sauce, remaining mozzarella and remaining parmesan. Tent loosely with foil and bake in preheated oven 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 20-30 minutes, until bubbly and cheese is beginning to brown. Let rest at room temperature at least 15 minutes before cutting and serving.

  • In a large skillet, cook the beef and sausage together over medium heat. While cooking, break it up with a spatula until brown all the way through, 5 to 6 minutes (can add a little olive oil to start if you prefer, but not necessary). Season with salt and pepper. Drain the fat and stir in the pasta sauce.
  • In a rectangular baking dish spread a third of the meat sauce on the bottom. I like to jiggle the dish for one nice even layer. Cover with one layer of cooked lasagna noodles (I boil them first, even if the box says not to).
  • Then add half the ricotta in dollops over the top. Sprinkle half the shredded mozzarella, then repeat with more sauce, noodles, cheese, noodles, and then the remaining sauce. Top with grated Parmesan if desired. Just to summarize, this is the order in the baking dish...from the bottom to the top:> Meat sauce (bottom)> Noodles> Ricotta> Mozzarella> Meat Sauce> Noodles> Ricotta> Mozzarella> Noodles> Meat sauce (full coverage over noodles)> Parmesan (if using, on top)I find this type of list helpful because at the very end the order switches to end with sauce on top covering the noodles. Otherwise the noodles will dry out when baking.
