Lazy Lasagna has been around for YEARS! I can’t remember where I came across this recipe – my guess is, I discovered it on the internet. Where? I have no idea! If anyone knows the origin, please comment below! 🙂
This is the EASIEST homemade lasagna recipe that I go back to time and time again. It is definitely Family Approved. I’ll post the original recipe and then put my notes in (parentheses). 🙂
1 lb Ground beef, browned and drained if needed
1 – 26 oz Spaghetti sauce
12 oz Mozzarella (or Monterey jack), shredded
2 cups Cottage cheese (or Ricotta cheese)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated or shredded (I use whatever I have)
1 tsp Oregano, dry
1 tsp Minced onion (if I don’t have dry onion, I just add chopped fresh onion to the burger as it browns)
9 Lasagna noodles, UNCOOKED (no need to purchase any special kind – just regular noodles)
3/4 cup Hot water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix prepared beef, sauce and seasonings together. (I do this right in the pan that I browned the meat in) In another bowl, mix all the cheeses together. (you can add them to the lasagna separately, but it works out really well to mix it)
Place a layer of noodles in the bottom of your 9×13 baking dish. Spread half of the meat mixture on top, then half of the cheese mixture. Repeat beginning with noodles again. We love cheese, so I have no problem adding more shredded cheese to the top. 😉
Slowly pour hot water over all. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour + 15 mins. Let stand covered out of the oven for 10 minutes before serving.
This is a recipe that I receive compliments on every time I serve it to others! I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
