World’s BEST Meat Lasagna Recipe

I make a super good lasagna. It’s a fact. It’s rich and flavorful and cheesy and a mouthful of comfort food in every bite.

Made this last night SO good. Definitely the best meat lasagna recipe. Really good dinner comfort meal and also freezer friendly

A few weeks ago when I made it last my sister announced that she just going to stop ordering lasagna and just make me make it whenever she feels the pull. So this is for her. “I’m not your kitchen slave make your own lasagna ;)”

Wow this is amazing. Made this meat lasagna recipe twice now. Great family dinner and freezes well too

Okay I’ll probably keep making her lasagna because like with all of her food luring the second she says “you know what sounds good” my brain is like “yes we NEEEEED that…NOW.” So this is for the rest of you that can’t psychologically manipulate me into making you lasagna.

Oh man this is good. Can't wait to make this meat lasagna recipe again. Best dinner ever and freezes for an easy weeknight meal

Best Meat Lasagna Recipe

Makes enough to fill a 9×13 inch pan.


  • 8-10 Lasagna noodles cooked (or not if you use no boil noodles)
  • 6 C Marinara Sauce (your favorite homemade or store bought about 1 C per layer)
  • 1 lbs Mild Italian Sausage
  • 1/2 C Mozzarella
  • 4 C Bachemel Sauce (recipe below)
    • 4 TBS Butter
    • 5 TBS Flour
    • 4 C Milk
    • 1/2 C Parmesan Cheese
    • onion powder (about 1/2 tsp) adjust to taste
    • nutmeg (about 1/8 tsp) adjust to taste
    • garlic salt (1-2 tsp) adjust to taste
    • pepper (about 1/8 tsp) adjust to taste
    • Italian seasoning (about 1 TBS) adjust to taste
  • 1/2 C Parmesan Cheese (this is in addition to the bachemel)

Hands down the best lasagna recipe I've tried. Turns out perfect every time and freezes great for an easy weeknight meal


  1. Cook pasta if needed.
  2. Brown sausage and drown excess drippings.
  3. Make Bachemel sauce by melting butter in a large pan over medium high heat.
  4. Mix in flour and cook for a minute stirring.
  5. Turn heat down to medium low and whisk in milk slowly making sure to incorporate and minimize any flour lumps.
  6. Add in cheese and seasoning. Start conservatively with the seasonings and add until it suits your taste.
  7. Cook until thick enough that it will hold it’s shape when you swipe some off a spoon dipped into the sauce.
  8. Set aside.
  9. Assemble the lasagna as pictured above.
  10. Bake at 450 F for 30-45 minutes.
  11. Broil to brown the top if desired.
  12. Let rest for at least 10 minutes before serving if you want it to set. We’re always too impatience and just eat it right away.

Finally a meat lasagna recipe that the whole family loves. Great recipe and freezes great.

Aww shoot just writing this up has given me the “I need lasagna” bug again. Luckily I have a small dish of it in the freezer from last time I made this. A half of this recipe is perfect for a small family. If you want use two 8×8 pans and freeze one for later. I love those aluminum pans that you can bake in and toss when you’re done.

It's a keeper. This is super good and freeze great. Probably the best meat lasagna recipe I've tried. Will be making it again.

I hope you give it try it is one of our family’s all time favorite recipes. It really is so good.

Hands down the best lasagna recipe. Already made it twice and it freezes nicely for an easy weeknight dinner of meat lasagna.
