Family Favorite Lasagna Recipe
I’m sharing our family’s favorite easy lasagna recipe today! My mom makes Lasagna for the family all the time. It’s one of those meals that the entire family loves. It can usually feed all of us too, which is a bonus since the family is pretty large. Not sure how it will be in a few years when there are even more kids, but I’m sure we’ll have to start doubling today’s easy lasagna recipe soon. 😉
Over the years my mom has tried a TON of Lasagna recipes, but recently she has been using the same one because all of us kids loved it so much. It has become our favorite Lasagna, and my mom doesn’t mind making it all the time, because it’s such an easy Lasagna recipe. The recipe comes from the awesome ladies at Favorite Family Recipes. My mom modified it a bit to our family’s liking and we will probably continue to make it again and again because it’s so easy and so good.
MY OTHER RECIPES
This easy lasagna recipe includes all the traditional ingredients including
- ground meat (beef and pork)
- cheese (parmesan, mozzarella, and cottage cheese)
- seasonings (minced garlic, basil, salt, and pepper)
- tomato sauce
- lasagna noodles
One of the reasons this recipe is so simple is because it calls for no boil lasagna noodles! So you just have to cook up the meats and seasonings with the tomato sauce, combine the three cheeses, and then layer everything with the uncooked noodles in your 9×13 pan! The noodles cook while you’re baking the lasagna in the oven. It’s so much faster!
Seriously – you can never go wrong with lasagna for dinner. It’s just too good, and I will never turn it down with all it’s cheesy meaty goodness!
We always make these sides to go with this recipe:
