Serves: 4-6
  • 1 pound of fresh mozzarella
  • 6-7 cups of tomato sauce
  • 2-3 cups of fresh ricotta
  • Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (see my guide to cheese)
  • A small amount of ground beef and/or pork sauteed in olive oil prior to inclusion in dish
  • 1 box of flat (no ridge) dry lasagna
  1. Cook the pasta per the instructions on the box and place the pasta on the bottom of a pan, then add sauce, mozzarella, grated cheese, ricotta, and ground meat.
  2. Repeat until your ingredients run out! Note: the top layer should be the sauce with a bit of grated cheese, if you'd like.
  3. Place aluminum foil over baking dish and bake in oven at 375°F for 40 minutes.
  4. The ideal lasagna should be about the right combination of pasta, tomato sauce, and cheeses and not simply a cheese bomb!
