Total time: 
Serves: 12
  • 4½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 6 Tbsp water, room temperature
  • 1½ pounds ground beef
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • 32 oz. ricotta cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups mozzarella, shredded and divided
  • 1½ cups parmesan cheese
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • Fresh lasagna noodles (above) or 1 box lasagna noodles
  • 24 oz pasta sauce
  2. In mixer, combine all ingredients until combined. Remove dough and knead to form a ball. Set aside and let rest for about 30 minutes.
  3. Place dough on clean, lightly floured surface. Roll out with rolling pin until desired thickness. Trim rough edges and cut into equal 2 inch wide (or desired width) strips. Gather unused dough and edges, knead and roll out additional strips.
  4. Set fresh noodles aside until ready to use. (I didn't roll mine out until after I'd made my sauce, and cheese mixture).
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  7. In a large skillet on medium high heat combine ground beef, ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp pepper and garlic powder and cook thoroughly. Remove from heat and stir in pasta sauce until combined and set aside.
  8. In a large bowl, combine ricotta cheese, 1½ cups mozzarella cheese, eggs, parmesan cheese, ¼ tsp salt, and ¼ tsp pepper and stir until blended.
  9. In a 9x13 pan spread a light layer of sauce. Then add first layer of noodles. Add a layer of ricotta mixture. Repeat with sauce, noodles and cheese again. Repeat a third time saving enough sauce to cover top of lasagna.
  10. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes.
  11. Remove foil and add remaining mozzarella cheese, adding extra if desired.
  12. Bake for an additional 20 or so minutes until cheese is melted, bubbly and noodles are cooked through.
  13. **** Each piece of lasagna (if you cut into 12 pieces) was roughly 400 calories. ****
