Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Extra Lean ground beef (96/4)-You can of course use ground turkey or sausage as well.
  • Sweet or yellow onion
  • Garlic cloves
  • Spaghetti sauce -I used Classico originally but I also like to use Rao’s. Use any sauce you like!
  • Pasta – Any you like will work in this one but Mafalda would be perfect!
  • Eggs
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Low-fat cottage cheese -Ricotta would be a great substitution here if you don’t like cottage cheese (I know a lot of people don’t). Ricotta is a little lower in protein so keep that in mind if carefully tracking your macros.
  • Parmesan cheeseParmigiano Reggiano would be best. I always keep some in my fridge.
  • Parsley -fresh or dry
  • Salt & Pepper

Can I Add Extra Veggies?

This is a great idea! In fact I added lots of extra veggies in the single serve meal prep version of this one in Meal Prep Cookbook Volume 1! Here are some ideas for extra veggies I think would work well in the dump lasagna:

  • Carrots
  • Zucchini
  • Squash
  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower

Can I Use a Different Kind of Meat?

You can of course use any meat you like, or a mixture of a few! Like beef and sausage! Ground turkey would work well in this one as well. Ground chicken would work, but keep in mind it won’t taste like traditional lasagna.

Where Do I Find Extra Lean Ground Beef?

I found this extra lean ground beef at my local Walmart! If you’re wanting to make sure the macros are the same as mine, look for something close to 96/4. But like I always say, don’t stress about it. We buy beef from a rancher that appears to be pretty lean, but it doesn’t come with labels, so I don’t know for sure what the fat percentage is. I also think most of it cooks off anyway, so as long as your strain out the grease you should be fine.

Supplies Used

9X13 Casserole Dish – Pictured and what I used to use.

15″ Lodge Cast Iron Skillet – This one you can cook your beef in and bake it in! I use this for some many of my recipes now!

Leftovers & Freezing Instructions

  • Keep leftovers in the fridge, sealed for up to 5 days. This one makes for great meal prep! Again, the single serve veggie packed version is in Meal Prep Cookbook volume 1.
  • Double wrap with cling wrap and foil right in the casserole dish. Freeze for up to 2 months. If using a glass casserole dish, let it defrost a few hours before sticking it right in the oven so it doesn’t crack.

  1. Looking forward to trying this one. I’ve never heard of egg in lasagna that just becomes part of the mix?

    1. Hi Jules! Yes it will mix right in and help it all bind together. You won’t even know it’s in there. Enjoy!

  3. for the cottage cheese – is it 2 cups or 238g (1 cup)? Same question for the mozzarella! Thank you 🙂
