Matzah Lasagna

Popping in briefly to share my recipe for Matzah Lasagna that I will be making for the KoD and I to have for lunch today.


4 matzah boards (run them quickly under water)

1 lb cottage cheese / ricotta

1 ¼ cups grated mozzarella cheese

½ cup grated parmesan cheese

One jar of prepared marinara sauce or tomato sauce

Optional – Spinach or peppers


Grease a pan large enough to fit the one matzah board.

Place enough sauce to cover the bottom, about 1/2 cup.

Place the 1 matzah board on top.

Spread more tomato sauce over the matzah.

Place some cottage cheese/ ricotta on top of the matzah.

(Add your vegetables here)

Sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.

Repeat steps 3-6 until you have used up all 4 matzahs.

End with tomato sauce.

Some will add a cup of water – check it half way through to see if you feel it is necessary.

Top with the last ¼ cup of mozzarella and the rest of the Parmesan cheese.

Cover with silver foil, and bake at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes.

Alternatives – some people beat in 2 eggs with the cottage cheese to give it a different consistency.

Makes 4 servings.

  1. Matzah for lasagna recipes? I think this is quite interesting, I might give it a try. My kids are not crazy about veggies so I think this recipe could sort of hide the spinach and hopefully they won’t notice the difference as much.

  2. thanks for the recipe idea! we’re mid-week and starting to run out of ideas that scream creative! fun! delish! you totally want to eat this! 🙂 just stumbled upon your blog and really enjoy it! thanks for posting! 🙂

  3. I am making this right now, but in a large foil pan because we are having lots of people (about 25) over tomorrow for lunch. I did add the egg to the cheese mixture based on multiple recommendations. And I am skipping the veggies because I want the kids to eat it too (even though my wide and I, and many of the adults coming prefer it with veggies). There is a similar recipe in the “Passover by Design” cookbook, but they say to mix the veggies in the cheese mixture, I like this one better, more layered!

  4. Here is a picture of it assembled, but not baked yet.

  5. Delicious!!! Hag sameach, thanks for the wonderful recipe:)

  6. Yummy! I made it last night for Pesach Sheni and it was a huge hit! The kids loved it and licked their plates clean. Thanks for sharing it.
