5-Cheese Meaty Lasagna

It’s hard to imagine a classic lasagna recipe without lots of luscious cheese. Three of the most common types of cheese found in traditional lasagna recipes are mozzarella, ricotta, and parmesan.
This recipe builds on this delicious cheesy foundation with the addition of freshly grated Asiago and shredded Gruyere.

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 jar of your favorite tomato sauce
  • 1 box of lasagna noodles
  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh basil (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil and the ground beef. Cook, breaking up the beef with a spatula, until browned and no longer pink.
  • Add the tomato sauce to the skillet with the beef. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • In a large bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, blue cheese, and egg. Mix well.
  • Cook the lasagna noodles according to the package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  • Spread a thin layer of the meat sauce on the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish
  • Arrange a layer of lasagna noodles on top of the sauce, overlapping slightly. Spread a layer of the cheese mixture over the noodles.
  • Repeat with another layer of sauce, noodles, and cheese mixture, until all the ingredients are used up. The top layer should be the cheese mixture.
  • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 25 minutes.
  • Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly.
  • Let the lasagna cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving. Garnish with fresh basil, if desired.
