This Cream Cheese Lasagna recipe is my secret weapon for impressing my friends and family. 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! Traditional lasagna recipes are made with ricotta cheese but I prefer the smooth creamy texture of cream cheese in this recipe. Serve this with Cheesy Breadsticks and a side salad for a delicious balanced meal!

How To Make Lasagna With Cream Cheese
To make this delicious lasagna recipe:
- PREP: Make the meat sauce and cream cheese mixtures.
- LAYER: Layer the lasagna beginning with the sauce, then noodles, then cream cheese mixture. Repeat, then end with cheese.
- BAKE: Bake the lasagna covered for 20 minutes, then uncovered for 15 more minutes to brown the cheese.
Serve These With Lasagna:
Lasagna goes with just about everything! It’s a super heavy meal, so a light caesar salad and garlic bread (or breadsticks) make the perfect combination.
Lasagna goes perfectly with just about any salad you can think of, really. Roasted asparagus or other veggies also make perfect side dishes that won’t outshine this perfect cream cheese lasagna!
I love that this recipe doesn’t call for ricotta, I think you will too!!
