Meaty Lasagna, step by step with pictures

I don't think theres a way to mess up lasagna. Well, one exception, put zucchini in it. ha ha

Here, you'll find a meaty and cheesy lasagna full of flavor and includes using one "special" ingredient that for us, makes it unique and over the top. I don't use ricotta in mine, but you can always add it. it's even better the next day.

How to Make Meaty Lasagna, step by step with pictures


  1. cook ground chuck, sausage and onions until no longer pink. Drain off grease
  2. stir in pasta sauce and simmer until warm
  3. I use a 9x14 baking dish, but you can use whatever you have on hand.
    First, spread a thin layer of meat sauce,

    (the key to using oven ready noodles is to make sure the entire noodle is covered, this prevents the noodle from drying out during the baking process).
  4. Top with a layer of noodles
  5. cover with sauce and about 1 cup cheese, another layer of noodles, sauce, then cheese, then noodles. Now your ready for the final layer.
  6. on the final layer of noodles, evenly spread mushroom soup over the noodles. then add remaining sauce, cheese and top with the fresh sliced mushrooms
  7. bake at 350* for about an hour, or until the top is browned to your liking.
  8. allow to cool slightly before cutting and serving.
