5-Ingredient Cacio e Pepe Lasagna Recipe: Make This White Lasagna Recipe ASAP

Cacio e pepe is an amazing Italian pasta dish created in Rome that's simply pasta, cheese and black pepper. This easy cacio e pepe lasagna recipe is a twist on the classic and turns this traditional dish into lasagna

The white lasagna recipe is made with lasagna noodles, ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan or pecorino, and black pepper. After being layered, the lasagna is baked until golden, cheesy and absolutely delicious. You can bake this creamy cacio e pepe lasagna recipe in individual ramekins or in a shallow casserole baking dish like I did. 

Serve this baked cacio e pepe lasagna as a vegetarian main dish or as a side dish. Next time I'll sprinkle some crushed red pepper flakes on top before baking for just a hint of heat. 

Cuisine: Italian 
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 12 lasagna noodles, broken into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 container (15 to 16 ounces) ricotta 
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan or pecorino, plus more for top
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons black pepper (I used about 1 teaspoon then sprinkled more on the top)
  • olive oil
  • fresh chopped parsley, for garnish (optional)

Here's how to make it: 

  • Boil the lasagna noodles until al dente, according to box directions.  Drain and put into a large bowl.
  • Add the ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan and black pepper. Mix well.
  • Divide the mixture between four oiled 8-ounce ramekins or one shallow casserole dish. Top with more grated Parmesan and black pepper. Drizzle with a little olive oil.
  • Bake in a preheated 450-degree F oven for about 10 minutes or until hot, bubbly and brown in spots.
