I smoke a 6-10 pound Boston Butt ahead of time, slicing off some for a dinner and then pulling the rest for pulled pork sandwiches and of course Barbecue Lasagna. If you're accustomed to pulled pork you are ahead of the game as there are many pulled pork recipes online. Too much work? There are ready-made pork alternatives in most grocery stores. Same for barbeque sauce -- there are good recipes on the web or use your favorite store-bought brand. I guess I use about 2 pounds of pork in the lasagna. Mix sauce with pulled pork in a sauce pan and bring it to a slow simmer so it will spread easily.

Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook the lasagna noodles in the boiling water until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.

  • Bring the pork in barbeque sauce to a simmer in a large pot over medium heat; keep warm at a slow simmer.

  • Toss the mozzarella cheese and Cheddar cheese together in a bowl. Beat the ricotta cheese, egg, salt, and pepper together in a separate bowl until smooth.

  • Spread a layer of the barbeque sauce into the bottom of a large, deep baking dish. Lay enough lasagna noodles over the sauce to cover the bottom of the dish. Spread an even layer of the pulled pork in barbeque sauce over the noodles; top with a layer of the ricotta mixture and the mozzarella and Cheddar cheese mixture. Repeat layering. Finish the assembly by topping with a layer of the ricotta mixture, a thin layer of the pork, and a light sprinkling of the cheese mixture. Reserve a small portion of the cheese mixture for later.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Top the lasagna with the reserved cheese mixture and return to over until the cheese is bubbly, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 15 minutes before serving.

I have made this twice in a week. I did not bother with boiling the noodles. I made extra sauce for the home made bbq pork and let it sit in the fridge overnight. I baked it off the next day and the noodles were perfect. The Lunch Ladies Loved it!! Really different. This is a keeper & Great for a crowd. Read More

This was alright. I thought the combination would be too odd but I was lured in by how quick and easy it was. To my amusement it actually turned out to be pretty tasty. For the dish I used the proportions were off (I didn't use nearly all of the shredded cheese and could have used more ricotta). I added a hearty dash of onion powder to the ricotta mixture because I couldn't comprehend this dish without at least a little bit of seasoning of some sort. Overall this was edible but weird. I think I'll only make it again if I have a lot of pulled pork to get rid of but it was an interesting dinner. Read More

I LOVED this recipe. The only change I made was in the amount of cheese. I only had an 8 oz. bag of the cheddar and 8 oz. bag of mozzarella. I also cooked the entire box of lasagna noodles and literally used 8 of them (4 for each layer). There was only enough ricotta and meat for two layers but it was perfect. Next time I make a boston butt this will be made with the leftovers. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

WOW!!! I was looking for something creative to do with slow cooked pork BBQ leftovers (I added Bull's Eye since the meat wasn't too saucy) and this couldn't have been more perfect! I followed the recipe ingredients exactly but was pretty absent-minded/lazy about following the dirsctions (got the layers out of order didn't spread things evenly put the cheese on top in the beginning instead of the last 5 minutes) but it turned out amazing! My husband and I were blown away. This would be perfect to take over to someone's house to be re-heated if you wanted to drop off dinner or for a pot-luck tailgate etc. where it could sit out a while. It was fairly quick to make and you could probably use any kind of slow cooked meat. Imagine the possibilities...leftover pot roast and mashed potatoes BBQ chicken mexican beef etc. Delicious and creative I'll certainly be adding this recipe to my regular rotation! Read More

I really enjoyed this recipe. I agree with other reviewers that there is an abundance of noodles left over. I also added some onions. I think it needs something with a different texture also. Maybe some colored peppers. Read More

This is total comfort food. I made the pork following the Southern Yank Pulled Pork BBQ recipe from this site (which was AWESOME.) I agree that it's kind of a one-note dish that relies heavily on the quality of your bbq -- so make sure it's good! My picky 5 yr old loved it. Read More
