Lasagna

With the invention of oven ready noodles, making lasagne is easier than ever.
Regular lasagne noodles can also be used by either precooking or just use them dry and add a little more liquid in the casserole dish.
The regular lasagne noodles will expand and buckle in the dish, which really doesn’t matter.

  6. Add rest of cheese and top with remaining meat sauce.
