Mom’s Lasagna

I know I am not the only one that grew up in a family that had to watch what they spent on everything, including food. I’m not embarrassed to say that it helped me realize how important it was to have easy recipes that didn’t break the bank. This has been a favorite in our family for years. I love a more ‘fancy’ lasagna too, but to be honest, this would be the one I would go to. I am not a big fan of meat, and neither is my oldest daughter so normally I make half of this with meat and half without.

Let me know if you try it and what you think.

The ingredients in this may not sound like much, but they really do taste good. When we were growing up we didn’t have a lot of money so my Mom couldn’t afford any fancy ingredients. Give this one a try and let me know what you think.


  • 1 lb. hamburger
  • 1 medium onion, chopped garlic salt/powder
  • Lasagna noodles
  • 2 cans tomato soup
  • 2 cans cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 large can tomato paste
  • 12 ozs. mozzarella/cheddar cheese


  1. Fry hamburger with onion and garlic salt/powder (a few shakes to taste). 
  2. Boil noodles.
  3. Mix together the soups and the tomato paste.
  4. Spray a 13×9 pan. 
  5. Layer noodles, hamburger, then sauce. 
  6. Repeat layers ending with sauce. 
  7. Top with cheese. 
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. 
  9. Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes. 


I sprinkle cheese between the layers. I also usually double this recipe and DO NOT cook the noodles. I get the flat lasagna noodles and make two pans and freeze one. It always turns out well.
