Our Authentic Italian Beef Lasagna is bound to be the best baked pasta dish you'll ever try! Between the salty pasta layers, the cheesy warm goodness from Lifeway Kefir's Farmer Cheese, and the lean ground beef to keep things light, this will go down in history as my favorite family meal prep recipe.
It's so easy to make... just watch for yourself! 😋
Absolutely! Here are some of my recommendations (based on a variety of schedules I've had in the past):
Lifeway Kefir’s Farmer Cheese is a low calorie, reduced fat culture soft cheese that is made using their Old World recipe. It has tangy flavor that adds amazing richness to almost any dish! On its own, it’s packed with 12 live and active probiotics, as well as plenty of nutrients.
It’s also up to 99% lactose-free, making this cake lactose intolerant friendly! In addition, each serving has 13g of protein and is high in calcium, AND is gluten-free… can it get any better?!

Thank you Lifeway Kefir for sponsoring this recipe! As always, all opinions are my own.
If you've been around for a while, then you may notice my growing fondness for using Lifeway Kefir's Farmer Cheese as a healthier alternative to ricotta in pasta dishes, buttermilk in cakes, etc etc. And in fact, that fondness began when I was a child, watching my mother, who is of Armenian descent, use this very farmer cheese in a variety of her dishes. One of my favorite being her crostini with a little lemon zest, honey, caramelized figs...
As I got older, and did a little more research into the nutritional facts behind farmers cheese versus ricotta cheese, I then understood why! While both are fabulous cheeses, I adore how Lifeway Kefir’s Farmer Cheese provides the special quality of live probiotics.
Probiotics are made up of good bacteria that can help keep your body functioning properly and healthy. This good bacteria can help your immune system fight off bad bacteria, as well as keep your digestive system healthy! And because we can always use an extra boost in gut health 🙌🏼
Wonderful question! ;) I have been purchasing their products for years at my local Whole Foods Market and Harris Teeter, but they are in so many locations that I would recommend checking here to find out one nearest you!
Now, it’s time to grab our aprons and begin baking deliciousness! ’till next time! xxL
