Meat and Cheese Lasagna

You may think, after eating this, that I’m Italian.  I’m not.

I do have Italian relatives though, does that count?  I’m pretty sure it does.

I consider this one of my “splurge” recipes.  Let’s be honest.  Meat and cheese and meat and cheese.

And meat and cheese.

Not exactly what I call a cheap meal.

While this could probably make one GINORMOUS lasagna I stretch it into two.  It makes it much more budget friendly which means I can enjoy more meat and cheese and meat and cheese.

And meat and cheese.

Bake one up for dinner and freeze the second one for another night.  I sleep better knowing I have one of these in my freezer.


  1. Oh that first picture just makes me want to dive right in!

  2. Wow, lovely comfort food!I love this recipe.Thanks for sharing!

  3. Is it bad that I want some of this for breakfast? 🙂

  4. “Meat and cheese”, two of the most beautiful words in the English language. Your lasagna looks delicious, we’re with Deborah, lasagna for breakfast please.

  5. I make spaghetti bolognese sauce and use the for my lasagna – i also make lots and lots and try to freeze some. This is my comfort food. Very nice!

    What is the green leafy stuff? Is that basil? I don’t see anything green listed in the ingredients. Looks delicious!!

    • I actually added fresh spinach leaves to the layers I baked that night. I didn’t add it to the recipe because I usually don’t add them but that day it was use it or lose it! You can certainly do that every time though! It’s a great way to add more veggies without the kids really knowing.

  7. Looks heavenly! Last week my husband made a ton of stuffed shells, two trays worth, with lots of meat and cheese in them. Some had spinach also. Your meal reminds me of that! YUM!

  8. Meat and cheese always thrill me.

  9. Mmm, exactly what I wish I was having for lunch…

  10. I love a good lasagna! I haven’t made my own in years.
