Mom’s White Lasagna
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 40 min. + standing
Made today; so tasty ! Love all the savory flavors that come thru in this dish. Made a few adjustments. Substituted ricotta for the cottage cheese and vegetable broth for the the white wine. One change I wasn't expecting to make was the use of "no boil" lasagna noodles. Purchased at Trader Joe's not knowing they were that type. Placed a small amount of the meat mixture and the ricotta-cheddar-egg mixture below the first layer of noodles to give some added moisture just in case. The noodles were tender so don't think it makes a difference on the style used.. I did see a non-gluten lasagna noodle in a grocery store. Think I will try with the non-gluten noodle next time. I'm good with regular lasagna noodles but sometimes do like to limit my gluten intake. Try the recipe, think you will like it !
I just made this and it was AMAZING! My husband always puts sauce on Italian dishes and he loved it and said it didn't need sauce (or anything else). For those expressing concern about the healthfulness of the recipe I made some changes to the recipe because I'm a vegetarian. I used Gardein brand Italian sausage (the nine ounce package was enough), cooked the sausage in a tablespoon of oil, and saved the liquid to sauté the vegetables in (put the sausage aside and chop it while cooking the vegetables; veggie meats tend to absorb liquid so you add it after the vegetables are cooked and the cream cheese is melted). My husband didn't know if he should buy white or whole wheat noodles and bought both, so I did a row of each, and one of mixed. It makes no difference to the outcome and whole wheat has less calories and carbs and is much healthier. The flavors were amazing and the gouda on top brings out all the other flavors. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
Haven’t made it but sounds good. Might use chicken and some mushrooms. Nice alternative to the typical lasagna with red sauce.
I used Dreamfield's noodles which have fiber in them. I normally do when I make Lasagna. I mixed some ground beef in with the sausage, and I can see where chicken would also work well.
Can’t wait to try it!
This sounds so good. I think I'll try it with chicken or maybe imitation crab meat instead of the sausage.
Great as written. Dharma keep your opinion to yourself if you didn't make it you are not the authority of what I might want to eat!
I’m giving this 4 stars so as not to mess up the ratings on a recipe I haven’t made. But before making this you should know that a 3”x3”x1.5” piece of this lasagna (12 servings per baking dish) has well over 400 calories & 27g of fat, with almost no fiber & almost no vegetables. Most people will get 8 servings or less from this dish, which boosts it to at least 600 calories. This isn’t even suitable for special occasions, it’s so unhealthy.
This looks delicious. Do you think I could substitute ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese? Same amounts?
Did you use “fresh” mozzarella that comes in the tube? If so how thick of slices? Sounds delicious and will be trying out tonight?
