Cheeseburger Lasagna


1 1/2 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef (I only used 1lb)
3 tablespoons instant minced onion
1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 egg
1 container (15 oz) ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded Cheddar and American cheese blend (8 oz)
12 uncooked oven ready lasagna noodles
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 medium tomato, sliced
Dill pickle slices
1. Spray 13x9-inch glass baking dish and large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. In sprayed skillet, cook ground beef and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes or until beef is thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Add tomato sauce, water, ketchup and mustard; mix well. Simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. Meanwhile, beat egg in medium bowl. Add ricotta cheese and 2 cups of the cheese blend; mix well.
3. Spread 1 cup beef mixture in bottom of sprayed baking dish. Arrange 3 uncooked noodles over sauce. Spoon and spread part of the ricotta cheese mixture over noodles; top with 1 1/2 cups beef mixture. Repeat layers. Top with remaining 3 noodles, beef mixture and the 1 cup Cheddar cheese. Cover with foil;
4 Heat oven to 350°F. Bake lasagna, covered, for 45 minutes.
5 Uncover baking dish; bake 25 to 35 minutes longer or until bubbly. Remove from oven. Cover with foil; let stand 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
6 Just before serving, top with lettuce, tomato and pickle slices.
* My family liked this I think it was the first time in a while that we had a quiet dinner cuz everyone was busy eating lol. It was easy to put together and a fun twist on lasagna. It really did taste like a cheeseburger. I think that if I made it again I would add maybe 2T mayo to the sauce mix also. But other then that it was great I give it a 4
