lasagna recipe


  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic chopped
  • 1 Pepper chopped
  • 1 cup Ricotta Cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups Old Cheddar Cheese Grated
  • 1 large jar of chunky pasta sauce
  • 1 pkg of Olivieri Lasagna Sheets


  • Brown ground beef, onion and garlic together in a frying pan. Drain excess fat
  • In a small bowl mix together Ricotta cheese and egg, this will allow for easy spreading of the cheese
  • Place a think layer of pasta sauce in the bottom of your baking dish. In my case I used 3 foil pans (7"x5"x2"). Cut a lasagna sheet to fit the bottom and place on top
  • Layer on meat, ricotta cheese, peppers, and pasta sauce
  • Add another layer of noodles, cut the sheets to fit the pan. You can also use the "trimmings" of sheets to make a layer of noodles
  • Once again layer on meat, ricotta cheese, peppers, and pasta sauce. You can also add in some old cheddar for extra cheesy goodness
  • Top with final layer of noodles and a thin layer of pasta sauce. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese
  • You can cover and freeze the lasagna at this stage, or bake at 375oF for 45 min covered with foil (remove for the last 10 minutes of baking)
  • If baking from frozen increase baking time to 1hr 15 minutes
