  • 16 oz. Ricotta cheese
  • 8 oz. shredded Mozzarella cheese

  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt for the sauce

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  • Heat olive oil in a pan and then add the beef. Cook until brown.

  • Meanwhile, prepare the lasagna by boiling 8 cups of water in a cooking pot. Add 1 tablespoon salt then add the lasagna. Cook for 8 to 9 minutes. Remove the lasagna and let it drain.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  • Assemble the carry-out lasagna on a 3-cup rectangular Pyrex food container first by spreading the meat sauce at the bottom. Top it with lasagna, then spread Ricotta cheese over it. Sprinkle some Mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses on top. Pour another layer of meat sauce over the cheese. Follow-up with another layer of lasagna and add a layer of Mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses on top. Sprinkle chopped parsley if desired.
