My husband loves Italian Cuisine, especially Lasagna, so when I found this little cheat recipe it instantly became a staple in my kitchen.
Start by preheating the oven to 350° F. Then on your stovetop, in a large pot, boil water and cook lasagna noodles according to package. Meanwhile in another pan, brown meat and onions. Proceed to drain noodles and add a little dash of olive oil to prevent sticking before laying them out flat on a tray or baking sheet and set aside. Once your meat is browned, drain remaining grease/oil and put back in the pan on low. Then add marinara sauce, garlic salt and Italian seasoning and let it all simmer together for a minute before turning off your burner. Side note and my secret little touch: If you like a little more spice, sprinkle some red pepper flakes in at this step as well! YASS I gotchuu. Next, get a baking dish and line with marinara sauce. Taking one flat noodle, spread meat mixture thinly down the noodle and top with fresh parmesan and shredded mozzarella (this time I only had sliced mozzarella in my kitchen, but really any cheese preference would work fine! Get creative, I sometimes use pepper jack to spice it up). Then from one end gently roll the noodle all the way up and place in your baking dish. Repeat these steps with the rest of the noodles until your baking dish is full. Lastly, top with remaining sauce and cheeses to your liking. Cover with foil and bake for a half hour (or until hot and bubbly). Let the dish cool for a few minutes before you serve and enjoy!
Grocery Store Ingredients:
1 package uncooked lasagna noodles
1 lb ground beef (I use 80% lean, you could also use turkey or meat replacement)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 cups tomato pasta sauce (marinara)
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
2 teaspoons garlic salt
2 cups shredded mozzarella--or cheese of your choosing
1 cup fresh grated parmesan
Red paper flakes for some kick
I've also seen people get real fancy and put a ricotta mixture in there as well, but this recipe is supposed to be simple (for me) you do you!
