Lasagna is a classic comfort food recipe. Often times it’s a time consuming recipe. However, using oven ready lasagna noodles makes the recipe go much faster.

The tip to a delicious lasagna is to have enough sauce. You want to ensure that all the noodles are covered in tomato or spaghetti sauce so that the noodles cook and are soft and don’t harden while in the oven.

Variations

  • protein: use ground turkey or even ground Italian sausage.
  • tomato sauce: use your families favorite spaghetti sauce if you prefer.
  • veggies: add in diced tomatoes, spinach or minced garlic to the sauce.
  • noodles: if making low carb or keto, use zucchini strips to replace the lasagna noodles. There’s no need to cook them. You’ll need about 6 zucchinis for the lasagna.
