Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Brown meat in large skillet on medium-high heat. Meanwhile, mix 1-1/4 cups mozzarella, ricotta, 1/4 cup Parmesan, parsley and egg until blended.
  • Drain meat; return to skillet. Stir in pasta sauce. Add 1 cup water to empty sauce jar; cover with lid and shake well. Add to meat mixture; stir until blended. Spread 1 cup meat sauce onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish; top with layers of 3 lasagna noodles, 1/3 of the ricotta cheese mixture and 1 cup meat sauce. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining noodles, meat sauce and cheeses. Cover with foil sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake 1 hour or until heated through, removing foil after 45 min. Let stand 15 min. before cutting to serve.

Size Wise

Since this comfort food classic serves 12, it's a perfect dish to serve at your next large gathering of family or friends.

Easy Cleanup

Spraying the foil with cooking spray before using to cover the lasagna helps prevent the foil from sticking to the cheese on top.


Noodles will expand during baking to fill baking dish.


Prepare using extra-lean ground beef, and substituting 2 egg whites for the whole egg.


Substitute 2 cups frozen BOCA Ground Crumbles for the browned ground beef.


Substitute 1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach for the browned ground beef. Thaw spinach; squeeze out excess liquid. Prepare as directed, covering each ricotta layer with 1/3 of the spinach.


Adding water to the sauce helps cook the traditional noodles during baking, so you don't have to cook them beforehand. This saves you 15 to 20 minutes of prep time.

    I made this recipe as directed. It is very plain. I would not make again.

    This was delicious! I added some mild Italian sausage, diced bell peppers, and mushrooms to the sauce. Also, added a can of seasoned diced tomatoes with liquid and omitted the water. Letting it sit for 15 minutes after baking is a must. Everyone loved this so much that the kids took leftovers to school the next day. This will be a regular in our home. :)
