Last night I made lasagna for dinner.  It was so incredibly easy to make and everyone loved it.  Especially The Girl Who Thinks She’s A Bird.  I think what I love most about lasagna, is unless you are feeding a crew of lumberjacks, you can stretch this dish into 2, maybe even three meals.  Dinner, lunch, and dinner again.

Yep, this meal will be showing up on the dinner menu a little more often.

Here is my simple recipe for lasagna:

Cover the bottom of a 9″ by 13″ dish with 1 cup of pasta sauce {I added hamburger to my sauce}.

Lay 3 sheets of No-Boil lasagna noodles over sauce.  Scoop 3 tablespoons of ricotta cheese on to each noodle.

Smoosh {yes, smoosh is a word} the ricotta cheese with the back of a spoon.

Spread 1 cup of sauce over ricotta cheese, followed by 3/4 shredded mozzarella {or mozzarella/ cheddar mix} cheese.

Add two more layers of noodles, ricotta cheese, sauce, and  shredded cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for approx 45 minutes or until the cheese is all bubbly.

Let cool sightly and serve with garlic bread or a salad.

Perfect for potlucks, family dinners and weekend suppers.

  1. I make it meatless to make it ever cheaper. I buy my ricotta cheese on sale and freeze it in 2-cup amounts so I have it on hand when I want to make lasagna.

  2. Made this and it was a hit with my family, so good and thank you for posting recipes.
