Home made Lasagna


2 pounds dry lasagna noodles
3 pounds of beef roast
2 pound whole milk ricotta cheese
2 large eggs
10 cups of your favorite tomato sauce
8 cups shredded whole milk mozzarella cheese
1 cup chopped parsley
2 chopped garlic cloves
2 tsp black pepper


Cook beef until it shreds. Set aside. In a large bowl combine Ricotta Cheese, eggs, garlic, parsley, black pepper & 2 cups of shredded cheese. Set the ricotta mixture aside. In a large pot boil Lasagna noodle until they are al-donte. Remove from water and strain. Rinse with cold water so they stop cooking and do not stick. In a 12 x 15 x 4 inches deep baking pan start layering your lasagna. Start with tomato sauce on the bottom of the pan about 1/8 inch thick. Add a layer of noodle overlapping slightly. Now add a layer of Ricotta cheese, and then add a layer of noodles. Now add a layer of shredded beef with tomato sauce on top and a layer of shredded cheese on top of that, and then add a layer of noodles. Keep repeating the process until you are 1 inch from the top of the baking dish. On the top you should end up with a layer of noodles sauce and cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour . If you see the top cooking to fast lay a piece of non-stick aluminum foil on top. Do not secure it.

  1. Hey Marianne,
    this looks delicious! My mom's filling was a bit different, she used Ricotta, eggs, parsley, parmesan cheese, mozzerella cheese, salt and pepper to taste. Recently I made a left at the lasagna road and did Roll ups instead of layers. Bailey and I laid out our noodles, spread the cheese mixture on it then rolled it up leaving about 1/8 of the end free of mixture so it stuck to the other side and sealed. We layed it seam side down on a gravy layers pan, poured gravy over the top and topped with mozzerella, baked for about 40 minutes on 350 degrees, and was done. Have pictues somewhere! These work great in small individual baking dishes.
