Cheesy Lasagna

This was given to me years ago by a client of mine and I had never had a homemade lasagna recipe before that! We love it because of one silly ingredient. It has a different cheese in it that wouldn’t typically be found in a lasagna. American Cheese. Weird right? Well thats what you would think but it makes it extra cheesy and a little creamy! Here is the recipe below!


Meat sauce mixture

1 lb. ground beef

1 Tbsp parsley flakes

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp basil

1/4 tsp oregano

1/4 tsp rosemary

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 lb. can tomatoes

12 oz. can tomato paste

Brown meat and drain. Add next 8 ingredients, Simmer 20 min. Put in 8-10 lasagna noodles in salted water. Cook for 15 minutes or al dente. Drain and rinse in cold water. OR buy the Oven Ready lasagna noodles.


Cheesy mixture

3 cups cottage cheese

2 beaten eggs

1/2 tsp pepper

1 tsp salt

2 tsp parsley flakes

1/2 cup parmesan Cheese

Mozzarella cheese

Mix all together


Layer in pan, like so:

1/2 meat sauce(top)

Mozzarella cheese

1/2 Cheesy mixture


1/2 meat sauce

american cheese

1/2 cottage cheese



Bake 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting


If you also want to make a delicious Garlic bread try this!

1/2 cup mayonaise

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

1/2 cup butter

parsley flakes

garlic powder and salt to taste.


Cut a loaf of french bread in half length-wise. Spread mixture and put bread back together and wrap in foil and bake 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes.
