Share it:

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.

"A variation on this recipe  A tasty and scrumptious lasagna made with ground beef and a variety of spices and cheese which gives it a rich taste. Until now, found only at Tony's in Disneyworld, a premier restaurant found in Tony's Town Square. The restaurant is a replica of Tony's which was the favorite dining spot of Lady and the Tramp."

I tried to put noodles at the bottom of pan. I also added a spaghetti seasoning packet to my meat. The family <3 it. ;-) I will be making this again.

I 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!!!
