Yes that’s right.. I just can’t get enough bubble up’s 😉 I love these dishes, easy to make and a great family meal. I will continue to create new bubble up’s til I literally run out of ideas lol! Lasagna has got to be one of the most popular family go to meals, and it can also be high in points.. So I did a twist on it and made this delicious bubble up lasagna, no noodles just yummy baked up biscuits and man is it tasty! Serves 6 at 9 smart points each.

Tried this recipe?Let us know how it was!
Hi just wondering, you have to mix the pasta sauce with the ground beef and seasoning on step #3 but I don’t see where you list the pasta sauce or how much in the ingredients. Thanks Wendy
Hi Wendy, I realized this right after I posted it and have since edited it 🙂

So glad you enjoyed it, thanks for sharing 🙂
I used the pigs in blabkets wraps here in Canada. And it seems to be the right amount to correspond to the US can. Just a tip so you dont end up with extra biscuits!!!
That is awesome to know, thanks for the tip 🙂
This was so delicious! I added chopped portobello mushrooms to the meat mixture, and I actually sauteed the mushrooms and onions before I added it to the meat. Mushrooms are my go to for bulking up any sort of meaty sauce. I also mixed some garlic powder in the cottage cheese, and then when it was all assembled, I sprinkled the top with Low Sodium Adobo seasoning (which is essentially just more garlic powder, pepper, turmeric and oregano). I found a pizza cutter to be the easiest way to cut up the biscuit dough, just as a tip if anyone is struggling with the dough and a knife. I paired this with about 2/3 cup of cooked green beans and ended up just mixing it all together in one big bowl of deliciousness. This is definitely making it into my regular meal rotation. Thank you so much for this recipe!
You are very welcome Kelly, your add in’s sound great! So glad you enjoyed it 🙂
I’m not a fan of ricotta cheese. Would it be possible to eliminate it from the recipe and it turn out?
You could eliminate yes, might be a little dryer, maybe sub for a different creamy cheese?
Making this now do I drop the biscuits down first or the meat?
Your meat is at the bottom to start of.. Sorry I usually only reply to these comments once a day, I have no way of knowing they are here til I log in so I apologize I probably did not answer you quickly enough
Made it tonight. Delicious.
Glad you enjoyed it Mary 🙂
Could I use something else instead of the cottage cheese ? I’m not a fan of cottage cheese.
Does it have a strong taste when used in this recipe?
Thanks in advance!
Hi Cheryl, no not strong taste at all, I too hate cottage cheese lol, and I did not mind this at all.. You could try something else, maybe a light ricotta?
Just to clarify… Is it one pound of meat before or after cooking?
As recipe states, 1lb cooked ground beef 🙂
What does that equal to in raw ground beef?
Sorry not too sure, I must of cooked up a larger batch and weighed it out cooked
Can these Bubble Up Recipes be frozen? I live alone and wouldn’t be able to eat it all myself…Thanks!
I have personally never froze them but I believe others have and they freeze fine 🙂
Made this tonight and it is AMAZING!! However, because of my inability to EVER follow a recipe as is….I made a few swaps and got it down to 7sps a serving….Almond cheese instead of mozzarella and lean turkey instead of beef. Can thank you enough, it was absolutely delicious and filling!
So glad you enjoyed it and that is awesome you got it lower in points, thanks for the tips 🙂
I want to try this but with out meat. I am vegetarian maybe I could try boca crumbles they are only 1 point per 1/2 cup.
I would say give it a go, trial and error is best method sometimes 🙂
I made this tonight. These were my variations. I used lean turkey and did not have ricotta so I just used cottage cheese along with 2 Tbsp of Parmesan cheese. I mixed a whole egg rather than the egg whites. I added a shredded carrot to add flavor and more bulk and some red pepper flakes.
I’m sorry but this comes from years of cooking on the fly. I wanted to let people know that can use what they have in the house and flavor the dish to their taste.
I loved the flavor as did my husband. Along with the green beans I made, this was a satisfying meal.
Hi Lois, thanks for sharing your tips, glad you both enjoyed it. that’s how I started this blog and still cook today, “what’s in my kitchen”?
Could I make this ahead of time and freeze it? If I were to freeze it would you assume I’d use the same Heating and cooking instructions or would they need to be modified? Meal prepping for new baby on the way
Hi Jackie, all the bubble ups freeze well once they have baked.. I’d reheat it in the oven for about the same baking time or you could even use the air fryer to save on time if you have one.. you could probably prepare it and freeze it (before baking) and then bake from frozen, it might take a little longer to bake seeing that it is frozen..
