Simple Lasagna from

Lasagna from pizzatherapy.comA basic Italian dish with countless variations.

This dish was always served at our house during the Big Four Holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and Easter!
This recipe comes from Auntie Esther Yacavone, (Auntie Jenny's sister).


1 lb. lasagna noodles cooked as directed on package.
1 lb. loose hamburger cooked or cooked meatballs, crumpled
2 lbs. ricotta cheese
1 lb. mozzarella cheese
grated cheese, either Parmesan or Romano (or both)
tomato sauce
salt, pepper and spices to taste (basil, oregano)


  1. In bottom of lasagna pan put some sauce

  2. Start layering. First noodles, then the meat and then the cheeses.

  3. Keep layering until everything is used.

  4. Leave top layer with just sauce and grated cheese.

  5. Bake 350ยบ or until center is hot and 'cheeses have melted.


You crumble 2 hard boiled eggs in the layers. (That is what my mom does).
Replace the hamburger with seafood: shrimp, crab, clams, or lobster for a wonderful taste!
