INGREDIENTS

CHEESE DOUGH LASAGNA NOODLES

  • 4 oz full fat cream cheese softened
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded part skim low moisture mozzarella cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning

LASAGNA FILLING

  • 1/4 cup onion minced
  • 1 lb ground beef I used lean ground beef
  • 1 cup no sugar added marinara sauce
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 6 tbsp ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup part skim low moisture mozzarella cheese

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Shred and add all cheese dough ingredients into a food processor. Blend until evenly mixed. It should have a thick liquid consistency. If you do not have a food processor, you can mix by hand (see notes).
  • Pour cheese batter into prepared baking pan. Use a spatula to spread batter across pan.
  • Place into middle of oven and bake for about 20 minutes, or until surface is no longer wet and is firm to the touch.
  • Set cheese noodles aside to let cool. While noodles are cooling, prepare your meat sauce.
  • In a large skillet, add onion and ground beef. Cook on medium heat until meat is browned. Drain excess fat from pan. 
  • Add in Italian seasoning and marinara sauce. Reduce to low heat and cook at a simmer for about 3 minutes. 

ASSEMBLING LASAGNA

  • Evenly slice your cheese dough into thirds. Your slices should just fit into an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan. (see photo in post for reference)
  • Add a thin layer of meat sauce to the bottom of an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan. Add first noodle layer over meat sauce.
  • Add 1/3 of the remaining meat sauce across first noodle layer. Spread 3 tbsp of ricotta cheese across. Sprinkle 1/4 mozzarella cheese across. 
  • Repeat with second noodle, meat sauce, ricotta, and mozzarella.
  • Add third noodle. Top with remaining meat sauce. Sprinkle on remaining mozzarella. If desired you can add a pinch of dried herb seasoning to the cheese. I like to finely crumble a pinch of dried oregano and add it to the cheese.  
  • Bake lasagna in the middle of your oven at 350F for about 20 minutes. If you wish to get some color on the top cheese layer, set your oven to a low broil (after the 20 min bake) and let the cheese bubble and blister for about 2 minutes.
  • Let lasagna cool slightly before slicing and serving. If desired, sprinkle on some finely chopped fresh basil, oregano and parsley and freshly grated parmesan cheese before serving.
