Grandma's Best Ever Sour Cream Lasagna Recipe
Sour cream is the surprise ingredient in this meaty lasagna. It makes the cheese layer extra-rich and tasty.
It was great! Another review said it's not like regular lasagna, but still good - but I would say I didn't notice that it was not like regular lasagna. It was great and great for when you don't have ricotta on hand and need a spontaneous lasagna! We made it with Italian sausage (instead of ground pork and beef), jarred spaghetti sauce (instead of making our own), only one egg, and less sour cream. I would say the sour cream modifications were the only important ones - I think we had about 10 ounces of sour cream, and then I added the remainder of a tub of cream cheese, maybe 2 ounces.
8/8/20 - this was very good, tho the green olives were an interesting add! Used 1 pound of pork sausage (no beef), used only two cups of mozzarella cheese and added about 1/2 jar additional tomato sauce. Delicious and we didn't miss the ricotta cheese at all! Makes a full 9x13" pan, plenty for several days!
I am not a huge fan of ricotta so I tried this recipe out. The lasagna was very tasty and had tons of flavor! My boyfriend was skeptical about the sour cream but it was delicious. He ate almost half the entire dish! I followed the recipe to a T and the only suggestion I would make is boiling the pasta for a little while longer so that it is much softer and easier to cut with a fork when done. It does not quite taste like traditional lasagna, but it will definitely be making its way onto my dinner table again. Thanks!
I was skeptical about the sour cream, but decided to try it. We were very pleased. Love all the cheese! Didn't add the green olives, just because. One other thing I do different: I use ordinary lasagna noodles, (not the no-boil), layer them without boiling, assemble the lasagna, then add 1/4 cup water in each corner of pan. Cover well, and bake as usual. Comes out every time. Thanks for the sour cream idea. Also this freezes well, as I just took mine from the freezer today.
Oh. my. lasagna! This has been my 'go-to' for amazing lasagna ever since I found it! I do make changes, but not enough to make it a different recipe. I add grated zucchini and mushrooms, use Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream, and since I cannot eat sausage - I use all ground beef. LOVE this because it is NEVER dry (like mine used to always be!) and the flavor... WOW! Thanks so much!
Oh goodness, this was awesome! Super tasty and my new go-to recipe for lasagna. Who knew you could use sour cream! So happy to find this recipe as my hubs dislikes ricotta cheese, and I didn't have cottage cheese on hand. I made the recipe as written, but omitted the olives (disliked). Threw on some parsley as my "pretty it up" garnish. ....gotta go, time for 2nds!
This recipe was amazing. I have tried lasagna a few times over the years, and it was a hot mess. I gave it one last shot. I doubled the amount of meat...1 lb of pork and ground turkey. The recipe didn't have enough meat for me. I omitted parsley, basil, oregano, olives, and garlic because I didn't have it....I still think I stayed pretty true to the recipe. I follow the remaining steps exactly and had the proportions. I did use my new air fryer to bake at 400 F for 15-20 mins..and you see how it came out. I had enough for a 2nd pan which I topped with fresh mozzarella and will bake at some future time.
