How to Make My Loaded Lasagna

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. In a large lasagna pan ( I use foil store type)
    Pour enough sauce to cover bottom of pan
  3. Lay lasagna noodles to cover bottom over the sauce
  4. In a large mixing bowl beat eggs add ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese , pepper, parsley, garlic powder and pepper flakes if desired.
    Mix well to make the custard.
  5. Cook
    sausage and meatballs I do this in my oven until
    Well done
    Slice the meat in thin slices or crumble
  6. Pour custard over noodles
  7. Place a second layer of noodles over cheese custard
  8. Mix beef stock with pasta sauce I do
    It in the jar and just shake it well.
  9. Put the meat on the second layer of pasta
    Pour sauce with the stock over the meat
  10. Now place shredded Mozzarella cheese over the cooked meats, keep
    About a cup or more aside for topping
  11. Place a final layer of the cooked pasta over this
  12. Top with the rest of the sauce from jar
    Then place the remaining Mozzarella cheese over the top
  13. Cover with the non stick type foil
  14. Bake about 35 minutes covered
  15. Remove foil
    And bake until cheese is light brown on top.
  16. Take out and allow to cool about 20
    minutes for better slicing
  17. Serve with a good Italian bread and a salad.
  18. Homemade sauce is always best.
    But so many great ones premade in stores!
