The idea for my sausage lasagna recipe comes from my mother-in-law, who always makes it for my three boys on special holidays. I've put my own easy twist on Carole's classic dish and it's become one of my go-to dinners as well! —Blair Lonergan, Rochelle, VA

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 3 teaspoons dried basil
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 carton (15 ounces) whole-milk ricotta cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 12 no-cook lasagna noodles

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, cook and crumble sausage with onion over medium heat until no longer pink, 5-7 minutes; drain. Add garlic and tomato paste; cook and stir 1 minute.

"This lasagna was amazing!! I wanted a combination of sausage and ground beef and I like it meatier, so I cooked up about 1 ? of each, combined them and froze half for next time I want to make a meat sauce. The only other change I made was adding Italian seasoning and some parmesan to the sauce. The no bake noodles are a big time saver. This dish is definitely a keeper!"
