  • 12 lasagna noodles
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound mild breakfast sausage
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 18 ounces tomato paste
  • 28 ounces tomato sauce
  • 14 ounces crushed tomatoes
  • 1 package onion soup mix
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 1/2 tbsp dried parsley divided
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dried basil
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground thyme divided
  • 32 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 3 cups mozzarella cheese divided
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp fresh shaved parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • In a large pot over medium-high heat, add beef, sausage and garlic. Saute until meat is cooked through. Drain and discard fat.
  • Turn heat to low and stir in tomato paste, tomato sauce, onion soup mix, pepper, oregano, 1 tbsp parsley, basil, sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon thyme. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions, and set aside. If you're using oven ready noodles, skip this step.
  • In a small bowl, stir together ricotta cheese, 2 cups of mozzarella cheese, 1 tbsp parsley, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, salt, and 1/2 teaspoon ground thyme.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. To assemble, use a 9x13 casserole dish. Cover bottom of dish with a thin layer of meat sauce (about 1 cup). Place 4 lasagna noodles over sauce (you may need to cut or break the noodles for this). Cover noodles with 1/3 of the cheese mixture and then 1/3 of the meat mixture. Repeat process of noodles, cheese and meat two more times. Top final layer with remaining cup of mozzarella cheese and 2 tbsp of parmesan cheese. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 60 minutes. Remove foil after 30-40 minutes if you'd like your cheese to brown.
