Baked Lasagna

Lasagna is a type of pasta that is long and wide. Traditionally the dough was prepared in Southern Italy according to the information that I’ve read and there are few theories about the origin of lasagna, one of it states that ” that lasagna comes fromGreek  λάγανον (laganon), a flat sheet of pasta dough cut into strips. The word λαγάνα (lagana) is still used in Greek to mean a flat thin type of unleavened bread”.  Wherever it originated, I will always like this delicious dish. Mmmmmmm cheesy and beefy baked lasagna. A special treat that you can serve to your loved ones. In the Philippines, this is how we prepare lasagna.

1/2 kilo Lasagna noodles ( cooked according to its packaging procedure)
1/2 kilo ground beef
3 packs tomato sauce ( 250g)
1/2 cup nestle cream
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/4 kilo Mozarella cheese ( grated)
1 med. size onion
6 cloves garlic
ground pepper

Procedure for the SAUCE:

1.Saute garlic and onion, then add the ground beef and ground pepper then simmer for few minutes until the pinkish color of the beef disappeared.
2. Add the tomato sauce and sugar, simmer for few minutes, ( add salt if necessary).
3. Add the Nestle cream and simmer for a minute then turn off the heat.

Procedure for Baking
In a tray where you are going to bake the Lasagna, arrange properly by putting alternately the lasagna noodles, sauce and mozarella cheese, then bake it.

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C for 10 minutes.

Bake it uncovered, for 45 minutes or until cooked. Let it  stand for 15 minutes before serving.


  1. thanks for sharing this recipe..i tried this one & the result was yummy eventhou i just used quick melting cheese instead of mozzarella..this one's a keeper!

  2. Don't need to cook the pasta as long as the sauce is plenty enough to cover the lasagna flat. It will be cook while you bake & can spread bread crumbs on top with granted Cheese, but bake about 30 mins. Eat with garlic bread.
