Meat Lovers Lasagna

Welcome back to Smoking and Grilling with me, A.B. Today, I’m unleashing a Meat Lovers lasagna recipe that’s nothing short of a flavor explosion. Buckle up for a culinary journey filled with sizzling meats, aromatic herbs, and gooey cheeses. Let’s dive into the ultimate comfort food!


  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 lb Ground Pork
  • 2 tsp dried Basil
  • 2 tsp dried Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Fennel Seeds
  • 1/2 tsp crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 6 cups Marinara Sauce or your favorite Pasta Sauce
  • Fresh Parsley, for garnish
  • 1 box Lasagna Noodles
  • 16 oz Ricotta Cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 lb Provolone Cheese
  • 1/2 lb Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan Cheese


Put Cooking Oil in a Dutch oven, work your magic on the Ground Beef and Ground Pork until perfection. Season it up with a dash of Salt, Pepper, Basil, Oregano, Fennel Seeds, and crushed Red Pepper Flakes.

Pour in 6 cups of your go-to Marinara Sauce, letting it dance with the meaty goodness. Allow those flavors to waltz together, creating a symphony of taste.

While the sauce serenades, whisk up a creamy concoction with Ricotta Cheese, an Egg, and a sprinkle of Salt and Pepper. It’s the maestro behind the layers.

Cook your Lasagna Noodles al dente, laying them out like a culinary canvas. They’re the foundation for this masterpiece.

It’s time for the grand reveal. In a greased baking dish, start the masterpiece with a meaty layer, followed by noodles, the Ricotta mix, Provolone, Mozzarella, and a sprinkle of Parmesan. Repeat until you reach the cheesy summit.

Cover your culinary creation with foil and let it perform in the oven at 375°F for 40 minutes. Unveil the magic, and let it bask for an additional 10 minutes until the cheese reaches a golden crescendo.

Like any maestro, your Meat Lovers Lasagna needs a moment to rest – a solid 15 minutes. Garnish with fresh Parsley and serve!
