Tracking PixelEasy Lasagna Recipe

Does anyone else feel like this year is flying by at warp speed?  I can’t believe we are almost through the school year, seriously where did the time go.  One thing I know is that as the school year winds down our schedule is going to be jammed packed with ceremonies, sports activities and end of the year programs.  Which means I’m going to need a plan for quick and easy dinners that my family can enjoy even though we are running from one activity to the next.

This easy Lasagna recipe is one of my go-to meals for busy weeknights.  It only has a few ingredients and you can make it ahead of time.  I like to double it when I make it and put one in the freezer to have for another night.

I’ve found that when your making a recipe with only a few ingredients it’s important to use the best.  I’ve tried skimping on the pasta and sauce for this recipe before, but it never turns out quite as good.  My sister recommend I try Barilla® because it is thicker than other sauces and it won’t make the lasagna runny or mushy.  I gave it a try and you can really taste the difference.  It’s made from all natural, quality ingredients like vine-ripe tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil and herbs, a real taste from from real vegetables.
