Mom's Lasagna

This is my Mom's recipe for lasagna. It is one of my favorite meals she used to make when I lived at home.


  • 1 pound or less of ground beef (I used a .88 package)
  • 2 28oz stewed tomatoes
  • 3 oz of pepperoni (I used half of a 6oz bag)
  • 2 teaspoons of garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons of oregano
  • 1 tsp of onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning
  • 1 small container of cottage cheese (if you like your lasagna extra cheesy buy the larger containers of cheeses)
  • 1 small container of ricotta cheese
  • 8oz of mozzarella cheese
  • 1 box of lasagna noodles
  • 1 16 oz can of tomato paste
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Brown the ground beef in a frying pan on the stove.
  3. In a large pot pour in the stewed tomatoes. Using your hands smash/crush the tomatoes into smaller pieces.
  4. Mix in the browned ground beef, pepperonis, garlic powder, oregano, onion powder, and Italian seasoning.
  5. Cook over low heat for 2-3 hours. Stir occasionally.
  6. Boil the lasagna noodles according to the directions on the box.
  7. When the noodles are finished cooking drain and allow to cool.
  8. While the pasta is boiling mix together the three cheeses.
  9. In a glass dish spoon a thin layer of sauce over the bottom of the pan.
  10. Lay three noodles across the bottom of the pan so that the pan is covered.
  11. Spoon more sauce over the noodles.
  12. Sprinkle some of the cheese mixture over the noodles.
  13. Repeat until you use all of the noodles.
  14. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake for one hour.
Either of these recipes will go great with the lasagna Sweet Rolls or Perfectly Easy Dinner Rolls.
