For my tomato meat sauce:

  • 2 28 oz. cans tomatoes – I typically do one can diced, one crushed for a little bit of texture!
  • 1-2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 large onion
  • garlic, garlic, garlic – I always use a ton! I’d say two cloves minimum!
  • 1 lb. ground beef, preferably lean
  • dried oregano
  • crushed red pepper
  • salt and pepper
  • fresh basil – dried can also be substituted!

For the rest of the lasagna:

  • 1 package of noodles (should be around a pound in weight)
  • 1 lb. mozzarella
  • 1/2 lb. good quality parmesan
  • 1 lb. ricotta cheese


  • large sauce pan or dutch oven to make sauce in
  • 13×9 baking dish
