A Simply Classic Lasagna Dish

Truly a favorite for the whole family. This lasagna will not only fill your home, but also your belly with a taste of home.

I don’t think many meals compare to this classic lasagna dish. This was a staple for my grandma who raised seven children. She never missed a homemade meal: breakfast, lunch or dinner. I wish I could say that I am in that same boat with my children, but I am not that stalwart a homemaker.

This lasagna is simple to make and a great recipe for a freezer meal if you’re looking for something to plan ahead of time. My little family can barely eat one pan. In fact, I almost always freeze half of the lasagna for another meal because it is so hearty. That being said, this recipe easily feeds 8-12. My children love eating the noodles and dipping the sauce with french bread.

The Classic Lasagna Dish


  • 1 lb hamburger
  • 1 lb sausage
  • 5 (8 oz) cans Tomato Sauce
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1 t onion salt
  • 1 t oregano
  • 1/4 t pepper
  • 12 oz lasagna noodles
  • 1 lb cottage cheese
  • 1/2 lb grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 lb parmesan cheese


  1. Brown the hamburger and sausage.
  2. Add the tomato sauce and 1 cup of water to the meat.
  3. Add spices to the meat sauce and simmer for 30 min.
  4. Cook the lasagna noodles and set aside.
  5. In a separate bowl mix cottage cheese and mozzarella.
  6. Spray a 9x13 dish with cooking spray.
  7. Arrange in layers: sauce, noodles, cheese (two more layers then top with sauce).
  8. Sprinkle with Parmesan/ mozzarella cheese.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  10. Serves 8-12.

I love that it comes together so easily. Really there are three steps: cook the noodles, make the meat/red sauce and mix the cheese filling. Then you layer and bake and your home fills with the smell of home. There is nothing better than the aroma of warm lasagna. Every time I make this dish I can’t help but think of my sweet grandma and the great legacy she has had on our family.
