Ingredients In Beef Lasagna :

Detailed instructions and measurements can be found on the printable recipe card at the bottom of the page.

The ingredients needed in this beef lasagna are the following:

Beef – Ground is what we’ll use today. Because I used lean there’s no need to drain the oil after its cooked.

Onion – A small onion diced up that will cook well like white or yellow.

Seasoning – We’re just using dried oregano and salt and pepper today.

Sauce – A jar of marinara sauce will do just fine and it’s the key to cutting down on the cook time of this beef lasagna recipe.

Cheese – Ricotta, mozzarella, and Parmesan are needed for richness and a good melty texture.

Egg – We’re going to use this as a binder for our ricotta sauce so be sure to pick some up.

Noodles – Clearly we need lasagna noodles! Their sheet structure are needed for those definable layers.

How To Make Beef Lasagna

Detailed instructions and measurements can be found on the printable recipe card at the bottom of the page.

– Preheat the oven: Set to 375 F degrees.

– Brown the beef: In a sauce pan or skillet, cook the ground meat until no longer pink. Then add the chopped onion, 1 tbsp of the oregano, salt, pepper and continue cooking until onion is cooked through and translucent.

– Prepare the sauces: Add the marinara sauce to the skillet and the cup of water. Stir and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and set aside. In a small bowl combine the ricotta cheese, 1 tbsp oregano, eggs, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Mix well.

– Stack the lasagna: In a baking dish that’s about 9×13 inches, start assembling your lasagna. It is necessary to start with a couple ladles of the sauce at the bottom, because the noodles aren’t cooked. Lay 3 lasagna noodles over the meat sauce. Next layer with ricotta mixture and about 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat until you have 4 layers of noodles, and end with ricotta cheese and mozzarella cheese.
