What is Italian Seasoning? I have never seen it in the Spices section at the store. I also stay away from product that are combined with others, because they always add salt. I am on a salt restricted diet ( per my doctor)so I watch very carefully what I use or add to my food.
Hi, Clara! I’m Summer, an editor here at Simply Recipes. Italian Seasoning is a blend of different dried herbs. It is usually made up of oregano, basil, marjoram, rosemary and thyme. Sometimes, you can find blends with garlic powder or chili flakes.
Absolutely delicious! Made the recipe exactly as shown. It was very flavourful and we will definitely make it again.
It was a fantastic dish will definitely be making it again
It was GREAT. I will be making it again.
Best recipe EVER.
I made this and it was delicious I used slice mozzarella and also added mild cheddar cheese. I did use a foil pan but it still came out delicious. Thank you. :) j will make again and bookmark to my phone. I paired with bagged salad and yeast rolls and fresh lemonade. My boyfriend and his family loved it! I took a picture but don’t know where to post it
Not too hard to put together. Love the homemade sauce! Huge hit! Will definitely be making again.
I’m so glad you liked it Tahereh!
Made this for my husband and his parents and I used gluten-free oven-ready noodles, and it was a hit! I did ricotta on one half and cottage cheese on the other side because I thought my mother in law didn’t like ricotta, but turns out she doesn’t like either (if it’s too much) and she noted that this recipe was better than others because it did not go overboard on the ricotta. Thanks for the recipe, I will make it again.
Everyone loved it!
It’s in the oven, so I can’t comment on the flavour as yet but I’m expecting good things. I am, however, confused about how long it needs to be in the oven. It says cook time, at the top of the recipe, of 90 minutes, but only half that time in the method. Which is correct?? And the prep time of 15??? On what planet? It took, with two of us browning/chopping/stirring and noodling, about 90 minutes and that was with minimal time to let the sauce cook out (I did do about 40 minutes but since the method said 15 – 45, I’ve used 15 mins in my calculation, to be fair), but there is NO WAY prep time is only a quarter of an hour.
I did add some Worcester sauce for a little bit more depth, so yes, I’ve strayed from Italy a little, but that’s my only “touch”. The kitchen smells awesome!!
Hi, Dee! I’m glad your kitchen smells delightful! That’s always a good sign! For this recipe, we calculate shredding the cheese and chopping the vegetables as prep time. We include cooking the meat and lasagna noodles in the total cooking time. It’s best to follow the time specified in each method step. For baking the lasagna we recommend 45 minutes in step 8.
I haven’t made lasagna for years as I was never happy with the results for the amount of work. This recipe was amazing!! My son said it tasted better than a restaurant! I’ll guess I’ll be adding it to my staple recipes
Amazing lasagna. My husband said it was one of the best meals we’ve ever had. I think we would’ve just eaten the sauce with spoons too.
My husband and I loved your recipe! Couldn’t resist, had to take a piece before taking a pic of the final product. It was delicious!
Excellent, but a few nits: in step 3, the minced garlic is added at 2 different stages. I’m an efficient cook but this took way more than 15 minutes prep. Still delicious but I started later than intended. Lastly I used less than half the cheese and it was quite enough for our tastes. Thanks
I made it and it’s a perfect lasagna recipe
This is the best lasagna recipe I’ve ever found. Such a perfect and proportionate amount of everything. I’ll never make another recipe. This is the one! Thanks!!!
Yes I made it !! Thank u Excellent
1 lb. of beef not enough for 8 people, but overall a very good classic dish. I loved the adding of vinegar (balsamic) it brightened up the taste and enjoyment.
Delicious BUT prep time 15 min? Hardly . Chop the pepper and onions, cook meat then the veggies for 5 min, then back together again. Add tomatoe products after opening 3 cans, scrapping interiors-.-.-, mix together in 15 min???Ok can grate cheeses while sauce is cooking, also use uncooked pasta but just assembling all together takes 15min.Be realistic please
Hi Audrey, glad you liked the recipe! I think of prep time as chopping the vegetables and slicing the cheese. I include cooking the meat and lasagna noodles in the total cooking time.
Yum! Made it gluten free using GF lasagna noodles.
