  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F degrees.
  • Then you will want to lightly grease a 3 qt baking dish.
  • Proceed by lining the bottom of your dish with a single layer of lasgane noodles.
  • Spread 1/3 of your sauce over the noodles and cover this with 1/2 of the crumbled meatloaf.
  • Then top with 1/4 of the cheese mixture.
  • (be sure to save some cheese mixture for the last layer on top!) Repeat exact layering 2 more times-- while alternating the directions of noodles at each level.
  • Cover your dish with foil and bake 35-40 minutes.
  • Proceed by taking the foil off and sprinkling the rest of the cheese mixture on top and bake 8 minutes or until lasgana is cooked through and top is bubbling.
