The Best Cheesy Lasagna

This cheesy lasagna recipe is a cheese lover’s dream. It’s loaded with three types of cheese and full of flavor.

Cheesy Lasagna

My family loves it when we have game night.  A couple of our friends come over and we eat and play games.  I am not sure which is the better part of the two.  I especially love it when my friend Julie makes dinner.  Recently, she made a lasagna that was to die for.

Luckily, we can all enjoy the recipe for Julie’s Cheesy Lasagna since she was so kind to share it with us.  This is a dish that you need to make.  Let’s take a quick look at how it’s made.

How To Make Cheesy Lasagna

For this soul-satisfying cheesy lasagna, you need the following ingredients:

  • 32 oz Ricotta Cheese, whole milk
  • 16 oz Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 jar Bertolli 5 Cheese spaghetti sauce
  • 1 jar Dell ‘Amore TraditionalMarinara
  • 9 oz box Barilla no-boil lasagna
  • 1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 Tablespoon basil
  • Italian seasoning

To make it, start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Mix the ricotta cheese, half of the mozzarella, parmesan, parsley, and basil.

Spread 1 cup of sauce in a 13 x 9-inch baking pan (I like glass).  Place 3 lasagna sheets on top of the sauce followed by 1/4 of the cheese mixture, and 1 cup of sauce.

Repeat layers of lasagna, 1/4 cheese mixture, and sauce 3 more times (the last layer only add 1/2 cup sauce).

Put an additional layer of lasagna on top with the last 1/2 cup of sauce on top.

Cover with foil and bake for 45-60 minutes (less time if using a glass pan).  Remove the foil and add the rest of the mozzarella cheese and sprinkle Italian seasoning on top. Bake uncovered for 5-10 minutes more.

Remove from oven and let sit for about 15 minutes.

Julie's Cheesy Lasagna is hands down the best lasagna I have ever eaten. Try it and you will see why, too!

Look at those layers of deliciousness just beckoning to be eaten.  While I cannot attest to how easy it is to make, I can testify to how incredibly delicious it is.  I will be surprised if you have any leftovers when you make it.

Sorry for the inaccurate comment, the recipe was correct, I just interpreted it wrong. My apologies on the comment.

Just made it but had lots of the cheese mixture left over. I suspect you may want to add 1/2 cup of the cheese mixture in the repeat layers and not 1/4 cup of the mixture as indicated in the recipe. Good flavor though.

Do you mix both jars of sauce together?

I chatted with Julie and she said that she put one layer of one and then one layer of another. However, mixing them together should work, too.
