1 tbsp. olive oil

1 pound ground beef

1 onion, diced

2 tbsp. dried oregano

Salt and pepper

About 2 cups (400g) crushed tomatoes (or marinara sauce)

15 oz. ricotta cheese

2 eggs

1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese

2 tbsp. basil, thinly sliced

12 lasagna noodles (pre-cooked, the ones that you place directly in the oven, if you are working with dried ones, you can boil them for 5 minutes before using them)

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Fresh parsley


  1. Heat a pot to medium-high and add olive oil and ground beef to it. Cook until the beef browns on all sides, then add the onion, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Cook for a few minutes or until the onion is translucent.
  2. Add the crushed tomatoes and cook for 30 minutes or until the sauce has reduced in half.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180ºC).
  4. In a bowl, combine ricotta cheese, eggs, basil, and parmesan cheese.
  5. Grease 9x13 inch baking dish and put a light layer of the sauce on the bottom, followed by a layer of lasagna noodles. Then put meat sauce on top, followed by the ricotta mixture, 1/2 cup of mozzarella, and lasagna noodles on top of that. Repeat until you reach the top, and finish it with the ricotta layer with more mozzarella cheese on top.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until bubbly.
  7. Serve with fresh parsley.
