Easy Lasagna Pasta Bake Recipe

Easy Lasagna Pasta Bake Recipe

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces uncooked medium egg noodles size can vary here
  • 1 pound ground round
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 15 ounces fat-free ricotta cheese 1 medium container
  • 6 ounces provolone cheese shredded and divided
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • Cooking spray

Instructions

  1. First, preheat your oven to 375°.

  2. Next, cook the noodles in boiling water for 5 minutes and drain.  In a small bowl combine the ricotta, 1 cup provolone cheese, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper and set aside.

  3. Then, in a large nonstick skillet, cook the ground beef over medium-high heat until it has browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in the tomato sauce and remove it from the heat.

  4. Combine the noodles and meat mixture in a large bowl (or use the pasta pot!). Place 3 cups of the noodle mixture in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spread the ricotta mixture over the top of those noodles. Finally, top with the remaining noodle mixture and sprinkle with the 1/2 cup remaining provolone cheese.

  5. Bake it at 375° for 15 minutes or until cheese melts.
