Kids Extra Easy Lasagna

Ready in 1 hour

This is a great starter recipe for kids trying to get their "feet wet" in the kitchen. My oldest daughter has been making this lasagna since she was 7 years old and does most of the steps on her own, with just a little assistance from us when she needs it. When the lasagna is done, it will be bubbly, hot, and super juicy. Letting it sit at room temperature allows it to cool enough to eat and for the pasta to absorb the extra juices.

"This was my FIRST time making lasagna (that's why I chose this easy recipe:)). The recipe was quite simple, not too time consuming, and DELICIOUS! My family and I enjoyed it very much! "
