The classic comfort dish loaded with cheese and requires NO ricotta.

Three Cheese Lasagna: No Ricotta Cheese from Table for Seven

There was a slight camera situation this past week or so. I was so prepped. Mr Plain was on winter break for two weeks. For one of the weeks, I had a list of recipes to make and photograph. That was a bust. Literally.

I dropped my camera lens and it screwed up my focus element. So,blurry photos. I was so annoyed with myself. Well, I tried to fix it, work with manual focus and it just wasn’t going well. Hence, a new lens was purchased. It took a few days to get it, so, in the meantime, I tried a few snaps with my regular camera and my cell phone.

They sucked. Really bad. Super bad.

What Ingredients are Needed?

  • Italian sausage
  • Pasta sauce
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Dried lasagna noodles

Italian Sausage: Not a fan? You can use ground beef, ground turkey or a plant based ground “meat” option. If desired, you can also omit the meat altogether.

Pasta Sauce: Use your favorite jarred or homemade version.

Cheeses: This is the particular blend of cheeses that I used. However, go with your favorite brand/type!

Can I use no boil lasagna noodles? Yes. However, you may need to adjust your baking time.
