Ingredients for Noodles

  • 2 each large eggs
  • 4 oz Cream Cheese
  • ¼ cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
  • 1 ¼ cups Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ¼ tsp Italian Seasoning
  • ¼ tsp Garlic Powder
  • ¼ tsp Onion Powder

Ingredients for the filling

  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 ½ cups Marinara Sauce
  • ¾ cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 6 tbsp whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 tbsp minced onion flakes
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning


Instructions for the noodles

  • Preheat oven to 375° Line a 9×13 baking dish with parchment paper
  • In a large mixing bowl, using a hand mixer, cream together cream cheese and eggs.
  • Next, add Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.
  • Using a rubber spatula, fold in mozzarella cheese and mix until well incorporated.
  • Spread the mixture into the baking dish, forming a nice even layer.
  • Bake on the middle rack for 20-25 minutes.
  • When the “noodles” are done baking, cool in the fridge for about 20 minutes and then cut into thirds. This makes three perfectly sized “noodle” layers for an 8.5 X 4.5 X 2.5 loaf pan.


  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, combine ground beef, minced onion, oregano, garlic powder, dried basil and a pinch of salt. Cook until the meat is browned.
  • Drain excess fat from pan and add ¾ cup marinara sauce to meat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.

All Together

  • Pour ¼ cup marinara sauce into bottom of loaf pan. Top with the first “noodle” layer
  • Layer a third of the ground beef mixture. Top with ¼ cup mozzarella cheese and 3 tbsp ricotta cheese, and cover with another “noodle” layer. Repeat these steps.
  • Cover the top “noodle” layer with remaining ground beef, and mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle Italian seasoning over top. Bake for 20 minutes.
