Lazy Lasagna with Meat Sauce

Need an easy dinner idea for tonight? No need to look through countless lasagna recipes, here is a delicious Lazy Lasagna with meat sauce. This recipe is easy, and tastes great, too.



  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef cooked with 1 small chopped onion *
  • 1 28 oz. can diced tomatoes (or 2 smaller cans 15 oz)
  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce (or 2 8 oz cans)
  • 2 envelopes dry spaghetti sauce mix (McCormick's thick and zesty dry spaghetti mix is the only way to go in my opinion)
  • 2 tablespoons of minced garlic from the jar (or mince 2-3 cloves yourself)
  • 8 oz. NO BOIL lasagna noodles (comes in 15 oz package, but you won't need them all)
  • 16 oz. mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cup cream style cottage cheese


Brown meat with onion and drain. * (see note below) Add tomatoes, tomato sauces, spaghetti sauce mix, and garlic. Cover and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Salt to taste.

Use NO BOIL lasagna noodles so you don't have to add another step of cooking the noodles. This recipe is called LAZY, after all. Place half of the noodles in an oblong baking dish and cover with half of the sauce, half of the mozzarella cheese and cottage cheese.

Repeat layers. Top with thin layer of mozzarella cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Enjoy this easy lasagna recipe!
