Philly Cheesesteak Lasagna by PinchMeTwice.com

 

Today I’m bringing you a recipe for my version of Philly Cheesesteak Lasagna. This is not the traditional lasagna with red sauce. It’s made with a provolone cheese sauce, thinly sliced beef, peppers, onions, and ricotta (plus 3 more types of cheese). The hardest part of this recipe would be the prep work, but reading over the recipe will save you some time.

The great thing about this Philly Cheesesteak Lasagna recipe is that the assembly is pretty straight forward. There are 3 layers that you will be putting together. I updated this recipe to make it a little easier to follow. This is an impressive and crowd-pleasing meal. I hope you enjoy!

Watch me make it:

  • I can’t wait to try this! Question though, I’m single so I’m trying to make things that I can separate and freeze, so my question is, will this freeze well? Some things tend to get watery when reheated after freezing, so I wondered about the cheese sauce getting watery.

      I’m not sure if this can be frozen. But I was able to refrigerate it for a few days and it tasted even better when reheated.

    This recipe looks delicious. I can’t wait to make it for my Girls Night Dinner Party in a couple of weeks. I just have one question, if I wanted to add mushrooms, what kind and how much would I add?

    • Chanel

      Hi Tren, you can try about 4 large portabella mushrooms, slice and sauté them.

        Thank you!
