Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Fry beef in a skillet until cooked through and slightly crispy.
  3. Spread a small amount of pasta sauce on the bottom of your baking dish.
  4. Mix the remaining pasta sauce into the fully cooked beef. If your sauce could use more seasoning, feel free to add any dried Italian herbs, such as rosemary, oregano, and thyme.
  5. Add minced garlic if desired.
  6. Place your first uncooked no-boil lasagna noodles on top of the sauce layer in your baking dish. The exact number of noodles will depend on the size and shape of your dish. It is fine if they overlap somewhat. You can also break apart noodles to fill in any large gaps.
  7. Using a spoon, dollop cottage cheese across the noodle layer. Be sure to reserve enough for at least 2 more layers.
  8. Fill in any spots without cottage cheese with the shredded mozzarella.
  9. Sprinkle a light layer of grated Parmesan over the other cheeses.
  10. Finally, top with pasta sauce/beef mixture.
  11. Put down your next layer of lasagna noodles and repeat.
  12. It is okay to use up your cottage cheese before the final layer. When I made this lasagna, I topped the final lasagna noodles with the rest of the pasta sauce/beef mixture and then mozzarella cheese and a sprinkling of Parmesan. The mozzarella cheese will make that nice, crispy cheese layer on top.
  13. Bake, covered, for 30 minutes.
  14. Remove the cover and bake an additional 10 minutes.
  15. To serve, slice into squares and top with minced fresh basil or parsley.
