A meaty lasagna that uses no-boil noodles.


  • 1 16 oz package no-boil lasagna noodles
  • 1 lb freshly sliced mozzarella
  • Sauce2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 lb lean ground sirloin (or ground turkey)
  • 1 pinch kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1 pinch pepper, or to taste
  • 1 large sweet onion, diced
  • 1 large green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped finely in food processor
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
  • 8 oz baby bella mushrooms (or white mushrooms)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 2 35 oz cans Italian tomatoes with basil
  • 2 6 oz cans tomato paste
  • Filling1 16 oz package ricotta cheese
  • 1 16 oz bag shredded, Italian blend cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder


  • Preheat a large soup pot for the sauce. Drizzle with olive oil and add ground meat. Salt and pepper meat and brown.
  • Add onions, peppers, and carrots. Add a little kosher salt. Cook until softened. Add garlic and mushrooms and cook for a few minutes.
  • Add dried herbs, canned tomatoes, and tomato paste. Add salt to taste. Simmer for 1520 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350F. Mix all filling ingredients in a large bowl. Combine well.
  • Start to layer lasagna in a large 9 x 13 pan. Start with a layer of sauce. Run the no-boil noodles under the faucet to moisten. Add a layer of noodles.
  • Add half of the cheese mixture as a layer. Continue to layer the lasagna, ending with noodle, sauce, and mozzarella.
  • Bake at 350F for about an hour or until cheese has browned. You can add an aluminum foil tent to prevent drying—make sure the aluminum foil does not touch the lasagna, then remove it in the last 20 minutes of cooking to brown the cheese.
  • Serve with a fresh salad and warm garlic bread, if desired.
