I was in the mood to make lasagna but wanted to do something different with it. We love brown gravy, so I decided to try making a lasagna with brown gravy.
- 3 lbs ground beef
- 1x 18 oz jar brown gravy
- 1 box no bake lasagna noodles (12 noodles)
- 24 oz ricotta cheese
- 8 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 2 tsp garlic powder
Preheat oven to 325.
Brown ground beef.
Drain ground beef and place in large bowl.
Add ricotta cheese, garlic powder, onion powder and 6 oz of the shredded cheddar into the bowl and mix well.
Spray baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Place a thin layer of gravy on the bottom of the pan.
Create a layer of noodles, placing 3 noodles side by side.
Spoon about a third of the meat mixture over the noodles, spreading out evenly.
Create another layer of noodles.
Lay down another layer of meat.
Repeat one more time, creating a third layer of noodles and then meat.
Place the remaining 3 noodles on top.
Spread a layer of gravy over the top layer of noodles, covering it.
Sprinkle the remaining shredded cheddar across the top.
Cover pan in aluminum foil.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Remove foil from tray and bake for another 20-25 minutes.
Remove from oven.
Let sit for a few minutes and serve.
Sorry for the lousy final picture.
We did like this lasagna. it’s good this way, but I know it can be improved a birt. It has a sort of Hamburger Helper crossed with salisbury steak flavor going on. But it does need something, we’re just not quite sure what it is yet.
