Common pantry ingredients like spaghetti sauce and lasagna noodles come together to make an extra easy lasagna.
"I always wanted to try cooking lasagna so I picked this one for my first attempt as it seemed very simple. And simple it was. Very easy to prepare especially since you just add store bought spaghetti sauce. Now I guess I'm ready to try a more complicated lasagna recipe where I would also prepare the sauce from scratch.
Taste and consistency was good, although it was clearly flavored with the store bought sauce.
I did add a sprinkling of shredded Parmesan cheese on top which I think added that extra flavor and would recommend adding same to yours.

tibauer 11 month agoI used about 1/2 the ricotta cheese b/c my husband and I aren't HUGE ricotta fans. I added salt, pepper, a little onion powder, and a couple dashes of dried onion to the ground beef. This recipe was absolutely amazing and SOOOO easy! Tasted like olive garden lasagna! This is a staple meal for my family!!!

slmpho 1 year agoGreat recipe, it's quick and versatile and when you're feeding a husband and 2 year old its hard to beat. It's also if anything just one or two ingredients away from being pantry ready.
amandacook 1 year agoVery good!
limegreen24 1 year agoI went along with the recipe but I mixed in sharp chedder cheese as well
Beachbumette 1 year agoWhile I loved the simplicity of this dish and the idea of using the uncooked noodles, I did think it lacked flavor. I think some seasoning added to the sauce, such as sugar, oregano, crushed red pepper, etc. would liven up the jarred sauce. I would also add some parsley, salt and pepper to the cheese mixture. I may try it again and 'dress it up a little'. :)
