Easy Cheesy Lasagna

Mom used to make Lasagna the hard way, this easy cheesy lasagna is so much better.

The way my mom made lasagna involved boiling noodles ahead of time and laying them out so they wouldn’t break. It was a very laborious and time consuming process. We found a recipe for Lasagna that is so easy and delicious that even Nick doesn’t mind making it.

You can use ground beef, or for a healthier version you can also use ground turkey, or no meat at all.  The lasagna noodles don’t need to be pre-cooked and you simply add your favorite sauce out of a jar plus several different cheeses. Yum!
