This lasagna is utterly amazing...it combines typical lasagna ingredients with a layer of homemade alfredo sauce that sets this lasagna far above all others!

  • 1 large can Pureed Tomato Sauce 
  • 1 small can Tomato Paste
  • 1 box Lasagna
  • Oregano (to taste)
  • Garlic (to taste)

  • 1 pkg (8 oz) Cream Cheese
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 3/8 cup Butter
  • 1/2 cup Milk

Directions

  1. Cook lasagna noodles in a large stock pot, then rinse to remove the excess starch and set aside.
  2. Cook meat in a large saucepan, then add to it the tomato puree, tomato paste, oregano and garlic. Set aside.
  3. Make alfredo sauce:
    • In a medium saucepan, combine cream cheese, parmesan cheese, butter and milk over low/medium heat.
    • Stir constantly until smooth, then remove from heat.
  4. Using a lasagna pan, a glass baking dish or a deep roasting dish, construct the lasagna in layers as follows:
