“I created this when I was single and living on my own. I wanted something just a little different than ordinary lasagna. It makes a fairly large pan of lasagna, so I also discovered that it's great for freezing individual servings.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the meat with the onion in a large skillet over medium heat, draining excess fat if necessary.
  2. Then combine all ingredients except lasagne noodles and cheese in a large stockpot, stir occasionally, and allow to heat thoroughly, at least 1/2 hr.
  3. Coat a large casserole dish or baking pan with cooking spray.
  4. Start with a thin layer of chili on the bottom, then some ricotta, then a layer of 3 noodles.
  5. Keep layering in this order until you run out of chili, noodles, or room in the pan, but make sure the top layer is chili.
  6. Top with a layer of shredded cheese and bake at 375 deg for approx 45 mins or until cheese is melted and bubbling.
