Cheesy goodness! I adapted this from the recipe on the Barilla no-boil noodle box. I increased the amount of cheese, and used a homemade sauce because I think canned sauces are too sweet.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Lightly beat eggs in a medium bowl. Add cottage cheese, 2 cups of mozzarella, and the parmesan or romano cheese. Add the pepper and 1 tsp each of dried basil and oregano and stir well.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat - swirl to coat skillet. Add sausage and onion, and cook until sausage is no longer pink, then add garlic and cook briefly (one minute or so).
  4. If there's extra oil in the pan at this point, drain and discard.
  5. Stir tomato paste into sausage mixture and then slowly stir in red wine and water.
  6. Process canned tomatoes in food processor until finely chopped. Add with ALL liquid to skillet and stir.
  7. Add remaining 1 tsp each of oregano and basil and heat just until bubbling, then remove from heat.
  8. Spread 1 cup of sauce in bottom of pan.
  9. To layer lasagne:.
  10. Layer 1/4 of noodles, 1/3 of cheese mixture, and 1 1/4 c of sauce.
  11. Repeat layers twice.
  12. Then top with remaining 1/4 of noodles, remaining sauce, and 2 cups of mozzarella.
  13. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 55 minutes. Uncover and bake another 5 minutes so top can brown slightly.
  14. Let stand 15 minutes before cutting.

Very easy and my dh loves it. I cheat and use a jar of store-bought sauce.

My Darling Dad loves lasagna! I made this as a treat for him -- so this review is my Dad's... "Really delcious flavor. Especially liked how cheesy it is." Great recipe Appley! Easy to put together. I did use Italian style turkey due to Dad's dietary restricitions. Made for Holiday Tag.

Very good lasagne, appleydapply! I don't like the flavor *quite* as well as my usual lasagne recipe, but I loved how cheesy it was, plus it was a little easier to put together than mine. So all in all, this is definitely a recipe I can see making again! DH loved it--it just vanished off his plate--and even DS, who is picky about eating foods with tomatoes, seems to like this super-cheesy recipe. I did forget to add the eggs to the cheese mixture, but honestly I don't think it really made a difference. It has a lovely texture, and a rich flavor as promised. Thanks so much for posting this recipe! Made for Holiday Tag Game.
