Bubble Up Lasagna recipe uses biscuits, sauce, sausage and gooey melted cheese to make the easiest and yummiest 30-minute meal!
AN EASY FAMILY FAVORITE MEAL
Raise your hand if you've ever had Bubble Up Pizza. Bubble Up Pizza is basically a baked casserole made with canned biscuits, pizza sauce, cheese and pizza toppings (most commonly, pepperoni.) It was a dish I had as a kid. Because let's face it, any recipe with the word pizza in it, I was gonna eat. That probably still holds true!
CANNED BISCUITS AND LASAGNA TOPPINGS
I did change my Mom's recipe up just slightly by switching out the cottage cheese for ricotta cheese and I added a touch more Parmesan cheese to the mix. It was a winner, winner lasagna dinner!
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)
- Italian sausage (or ground beef)
- spaghetti sauce
- ricotta cheese
- Parmesan cheese
- Pillsbury Grands Jr. Biscuits
- mozzarella cheese
HOW TO MAKE BUBBLE UP LASAGNA:
Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside. In a bowl, combine 1 cup of spaghetti sauce (set aside the rest for later use), ricotta cheese and parmesan cheese.
Cut up biscuits into eighths. Now, you can just cut it up into fourths if you want bigger biscuit pieces. I just prefer mine in smaller, more bite size pieces. Because remember, these are gonna puff up during cooking.
Mix biscuits with cheese and sauce mixture. Stir well.
Spread into prepared pan.
Cook Italian sausage. Make sure you break it up as it cooks ensuring it gets browned and cooked thoroughly. Drain any excess grease.
Turn off heat. Pour in remainder spaghetti sauce and stir well.
Spread meat mixture on top of biscuit layer.
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top.
This part is optional but I always like to sprinkle a bit of Parsley Flakes over the top of the cheese layer. It doesn't really add an additional flavor but it gives it a nice pop of green color. It really is just for looks but if you don't have it on hand, you can skip this step.
Bake uncovered for about 25-30 minutes, until biscuits are cooked through.
In my oven, it was closer to the 30 minute mark.
Serve with a crisp green salad. I also served with some steamed broccoli.

Thanks so much Damaris! I really appreciate you taking the time to come back and comment!
I found this recipe a while back and my family loved it ❤ I've done it a few times and used different kinds of meats also left out ricotta cheese (we dont eat it)... Thanks for sharing... I've shared this recipe with friends as well and they also love..
Well this was a split. My husband liked it but I didn’t care for it.
The flavors tasted good.
Ok so making this tonight!! I love the picture of the what I need goodies and step by steps!!! Makes being in the grocery store with a two year year old much easier 🙂 love the name too 😉
Could I make this in the morning and just throw it in the fridge until it was ready to bake? I do that with my normal lasagna recipe but I wasn't sure with this because of the biscuits. I don't want to make them soggy or something. Thanks! I love your blog btw, I have made many yummy things from it!
