Make a delicious lasagna bake--without the noodles! This recipe swaps in slices of French Bread, instead. The result is a warm and hearty meal that everyone will beg for!


  • 1 large loaf sourdough French bread, cut into ½” slices
  • 3 cups Marinara Sauce
  • 1 pound hot Italian sausage, crumbled and cooked
  • 2 cups small-curd cottage cheese
  • 2 cups Italian blend shredded cheese
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ¼ cup fresh basil or parsley, finely chopped


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place a layer of sourdough bread slices across the bottom of a 9x13” lasagna pan. Stir marinara and sausage crumbles together, then place them on top of the bread. Spread cottage cheese over the meat sauce. Sprinkle 1 ¾ cups of Italian cheese over the cottage cheese. Lay sourdough bread slices across the top of the cheese layer. Use a basting brush to spread butter on top of each slice. Sprinkle with parmesan and garlic salt. Bake, uncovered, in oven for 30-40 minutes, or just until the bread is golden brown and the layer of cheese beneath it is bubbly. Remove and cool for 15 minutes before slicing and serving
