My Mom usually adds in some extra sauce (Ragu) along with the 2 cans tomato paste and 2 cups water. She doesn't have specific measurements but we like lots of sauce!

Next time I will add more tomato paste and water or a can of spaghetti sauce. It was good but I like mine a little more saucy. I have been using this recipe for 25 years. We love it.

  • Prep Time : 15 minutes
  • Cook Time : 40 minutes



  • Cook ground chuck ,sausage, onion and garlic untill meat is brown and onion is tender. Stir in water, tomato paste, parsley, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes.
  • Cook lasagna according to instructions; drain well. Mix together cottage cheese or ricotta cheese, Mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, eggs and parsley for filling. In a 9x13 pan layer first meat sause, lasagna, cheese mixture, etc. End with the meat sause on top.
  • Bake uncovered, at 350 for approximately 30-40 minutes or until bubbly. Allow Lasagna to stand about 10 minutes for easier cutting.
