Cabinkat's Cream Cheese & Pepperoni Lasagna

"This is by far my families favorite lasagna recipe. I have been making it for over 15 years. It may seem complicated, but it's really not. You can use low fat ingredients in this recipe without losing flavor. I don't recommend non-fat and I don't recommend turkey pepperoni. I also use oven ready lasagna noodles."

  1. this was excellent! the cream cheese made the cheese layer creamy and smooth. I doubled the recipe and used a 9x13 pan. I barely used 1/2 a box of noodles. It doesn't mention what to do with the mozzarella - I just layered it on top. I used LF cottage cheese, cream cheese and sour cream. It tasted wonderful! We will have this again.


My Mom didn't like more than one cook (herself) in the kitchen at any given time, so I taught myself to cook after I lived on my own. I never liked the same old stuff so I had started to experiment with recipes. I found loads of recipes to play with throughout the years, even before the internet (grin). 15 years ago I met a man who loves to cook as much as me. We have been having loads of fun with the recipes that we find. We only post what we find a delight to make and eat.
