Kielbasa Lasagna


prep 0:45       total 1:25


12 servings



1 lb. mozzarella cheese (grated)
10 oz. box of uncooked lasagna noodles


1 clove garlic
1-1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. whole basil
1 smoked beef kielbasa ring, in 1/4 inch slices
1 can (1 lb.) skinned and cooked tomatoes or
2 cups skinned and cooked tomatoes
2 cans (6 oz. each) tomato paste

Cheese Mix

3 cups cottage cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan
2 tbsp. parsley flakes
2 beaten eggs
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper


Brown meat. Add the rest of the sauce ingredients. Simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally. Cook noodles just short of al dente; drain and rinse. Set aside.

Combine all ingredients for cheese mix. Place half of the cooked noodles in a 9x13 pan. Spread with half of the cheese mix. (I've found that using your bare hands for spreading the cheese mix works very well.) Sprinkle half of the grated mozzarella over the cheese mix. Then pour on half of the meat sauce. Repeat layers.

Bake at 375°F for 30 minutes or until heated through. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting. If you make this ahead, bake it for 45-60 minutes.

My mom has been making this since I was little and now it's a favorite of my own kids.

This is a great recipe to make in advance and freeze for an easy and hearty midweek meal. If you make it ahead bake for 45 minutes to an hour.
