Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb Italian sausage, casings removed (if in sausage form)
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar, or to taste
  • 1 tsp salt, or to taste
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dried thyme or Italian seasoning
  • 1 (24) oz bottle of spaghetti sauce, of your choice
  • 1 (8) oz can of tomato sauce
  • 1 pack no boil lasagna noodles, (about 18 pieces)
  • 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • butter, for greasing dish
  • 2 cups mozarella cheese or Italian blend cheese, shredded

Instructions

  1. In medium heat, cook the ground beef and Italian sausage until lightly browned. Add the onion and cook until softened. I don’t add any more oil because the meat would presumably have a little fat in them but feel free to use a little oil, if needed.

  2. Stir in the salt, brown sugar, garlic powder, dried thyme or Italian seasoning, spaghetti and tomato sauces. Simmer on low for about 10 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasoning to your taste.

  3. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Mix the cream cheese and sour cream together. You can use an electric mixer for convenience.

  4. Grease a 9×13 baking dish with some butter. Spread about a cup of meat sauce in the bottom of the pan. Top with about 6 lasagna noodles, placed lengthwise and overlapping to cover the length of the dish. Evenly spread 1/3 of the cream cheese mixture over the lasagna noodles. Top with 1/3 of the remaining meat sauce. Repeat layering twice beginning with another 6 lasagna noodles, 1/3 portion of cream cheese mixture and another 1/3 portion of the meat sauce. Top with the shredded mozzarella or Italian blend cheese. Cover with foil and bake for about 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake uncovered for another 10-15 minutes or until bubbly and the lasagna noodles are fully tender.

  5. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
