Easy Lasagna Recipe

Lasagna is a holiday tradition at our house. Growing up I didn't enjoy the traditional holiday turkey and dressing dinners. My Mom would make lasagna the night before the holiday so I could eat leftover lasagna for my holiday meal. Nowadays I eat the turkey holiday meal but we still have lasagna the night before. This Million Dollar Lasagna recipe is a favorite. Loaded with meat sauce and four kinds of ooey gooey cheese!

How to Make Million Dollar Lasagna

ThisMillion Dollar Lasagna is very simple to make. Start with boiling the noodles. While the noodles are cooking, brown the Italian sausage. Add a jar of spaghetti sauce and some tomato sauce to the cooked sausage and let that simmer for 5 or 10 minutes. This will thicken the sauce so your lasagna isn't watery.

While the sauce is simmering mix up the cheese filling. The filling is a combination of cream cheese, sour cream, and cottage cheese.

To assemble the lasagna, you are going to layer 1/2 of the noodles, 1/2 of the cheese mixture, 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese, 1/2 of the meat sauce, and 1/2 of the parmesan cheese. Repeat the layers and top the casserole with a layer of mozzarella cheese slices.

Can Lasagna Be Made in Advance?

This Million Dollar Lasagna is a great make-ahead meal. You can assemble the lasagna the night before and refrigerate it until ready to bake. You can also freeze the casserole unbaked for a quick meal later. You can also freeze any leftovers. I like to cut the leftovers into individual slices before freezing. I wrap the slices in plastic wrap and place them in freezer bags. Perfect for when you only need one or two slices for dinner.
