Filling and Topping

  • 16 ounce ricotta cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 2 cups Italian cheese blend shredded
  • ½ cup heavy cream optional
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 ½ packages no boil lasagna noodles


  • Make Homemade Meat Sauce or use your favorite jarred sauce. When making a jarred sauce I use a 48 ounce and two 24 ounce jars with ground beef and pork.
  • In a bowl mix together ricotta cheese, egg, cream, salt & pepper for filling. 
  • Mix together in a bowl 1 cup of mozzarella and 2 cups of the Italian cheese blend.
  • Layer a thin layer of sauce on the bottom of a 9 X 13 deep dish (a 10 X 12 dish was used in picture). Then line a layer of no bake noodles, spread on the filling and sprinkle on 1/3 of the cheese. Next a layer of sauce. Repeat for three layers. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes at 350°.
  • Remove foil and sprinkle on remaining 3 cups of mozzarella cheese.
  • Return to the oven and bake another 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden.
  • Remove from oven and let set for 10 to 15 minutes.


If you plan to make the meat sauce in the same day. Plan for a longer cook time. See Meat Sauce Directions
Tip: Often I start the meat sauce in the crock pot in the morning and put together the Lasagna at the end of the day.
