This Cream Cheese Lasagna recipe is my secret weapon for impressing my friends and family. For the longest time I wouldn’t share the recipe because I loved people asking me to make it for them. However, since I have moved away from my friends I felt it was high time I shared the recipe, so they can make this whenever they want! 

This is a really easy recipe to make and I haven’t had a single complaint in the 15 years I’ve been making it! It’s one of my favorite recipes of all time and I hope it will be yours too!! Traditional lasagna is made with ricotta cheese but I don’t care for the texture. I know, I’m a freak when it comes to food, I know it. When I was first married I found this recipe and I was so excited because it was finally a recipe that didn’t call for ricotta so I knew I would love it!! I think you will too!!

  1. Going to try this, it sounds delicious. Our family lasagna maker passed away unexpectantly 7 years ago. He was my son, he is greatly missed everyday. I tried a few times to make it but it was always too dry. Ill let you know how things go after I’ve tried this recipe. Thank You for sharing.

  2. Looks delicious! Can you tell me if it freezes well?

  3. I have super severe and awful migraines that send me to the ER at least once a year, and they’re triggered by things like red wine and “fancy” cheese (anything that’s not mild cheddar or moz), it’s such a lame condition! I have always been a fan of lasagna, but every time I had it growing up, I got sick, so I’ve avoided it for YEARS. That is, until I came across this recipe. I just made it tonight and my husband and I are in love with it, oh my gosh! It’s FANTASTIC and I’m surprised I never thought to substitute the ricotta with this before. You are a genius and an angel and I get to have my lasagna back!! Seriously, the BEST lasagna either of us has ever had. A hundred times thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!

  4. How many people does this serve?

  5. Love it dont have any ricartta cheese so thank you so letting me know I can use cream cheese an sour cream
