Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup finely chopped celery

  • 3 ounces cream cheese, cubed
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 7 ounces shredded Gouda cheese

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

"This lasagna is delicious! Although I omit the Gouda cheese whenever I make it, the sauce is still wonderfully cheesy. One of my family's favorite ways to enjoy ground beef!"

"This was delicious and easy but next time I think I would try to decrease at least some of the cheese and other fat because it was incredibly rich. Nice for a crowd though--tasty and filling and little goes a long way."

"If you like meat I added 1 lb. of Italian sausage to recipe. Also, added 8 - 10 oz. of fresh sliced mushrooms. Delicious."
