Cheesy Biscuit Lasagna


I loved everything about this recipe. It is a quick and easy alternative to lasagna. It has all the flavors of lasagna without all the work. You could even call this Calzone Lasagna.  The biscuits are like little calzones. I used cottage cheese in this recipe. If you don't like cottage cheese, you can substitute ricotta. You could also add ingredients to the biscuits - peppers, onions, mushrooms would be good.

I browned the sausage and mixed up the cheese mixture the night before. Assembly was a breeze. It only took about 15 minutes from start to finish. I wouldn't fill the biscuits until you are ready to bake. I have found that they don't rise as well if you refrigerate them too long. This recipe got two thumbs up at our house. It was even good reheated for lunch.

(Printable Recipe)


  • 1 lb Italian Sausage 
  • 1 jar (28 oz) spaghetti sauce 
  • 1 tsp garlic powder 
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning 
  • 1/2 tsp pepper 
  • 1 can (12 oz) Pillsbury Grands Jr. Golden Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuits 
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese 
  • 1 Tbsp parsley flakes 
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil leaves 
  • 3 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese 


Preheat oven to 400.

In 10-inch skillet, cook Italian sausage; drain fat. Stir in pasta sauce, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and pepper. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10 minutes.

Separate dough into 10 biscuits. Press each biscuit into a 4-inch round. In small bowl, mix mozzarella cheese, cottage cheese, parsley flakes, and basil.

Place about 2 tablespoons cheese mixture on each flattened biscuit. Fold dough in half over filling; press edges with fork to seal.

Pour meat sauce into a lightly greased 9x13-inch pan. Arrange prepared biscuits on top on sauce. Sprinkle biscuits with Parmesan cheese.

Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.

  3. You could assemble and bake the amount you need each night instead of reheating leftovers! I love this!

  4. Suzanne - the refrigerated biscuits won't rise good if you don't bake them right away. They bake up flat if you store them out of the can in the fridge.

  5. I think I'll try with chicken and then maybe with just veggies (ie. mushrooms, carrots, onions, zucchini, etc). Yum!

  6. I'm making this right now. Instead of sausage, I'm making it with ground beef because it is what I had on hand. Simple to put together.

  7. I don't care for sausage myself, but my husband would go nuts for this.
