Sirloin Lasagna

Total Time:





1hrs 30mins

Skill Level:



  • 1 lb. Only Alberta Beef ground sirloin
  • olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano or Italian seasoning
  • 6 cups good-quality tomato sauce
  • 1 pkg lasagna sheets (fresh or dry)
  • 2 cups (one 500 mL container) ricotta
  • 1 ball mozzarella, grated (about 3 cups)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan or extra aged Gouda
  • salt and pepper, to taste

How to Make It

In a large, heavy skillet, heat a drizzle of oil and sauté the onion for 4-5 minutes, until soft. Add the garlic and oregano and cook for another minute, then add the sirloin and cook, breaking the meat up with a spoon, until it's browned and no longer pink. Season with salt and pepper. Add the tomato sauce and simmer for a few minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Spread 1 cup of the sauce in the bottom of a 9x13-inch pan. Top with a layer of lasagna sheets, another cup of sauce, some of the ricotta and some of the mozzarella. Repeat with pasta sheets (break or cut them to fit if necessary), sauce and cheeses. Put all the ricotta in between the first two layers, then top the last pasta sheet with sauce and mozzarella, and then a scattering of Parmesan.

Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes, then uncover and bake for an additional 30 minutes, until bubbly and golden.
