Simple Lasagna

In our attempt to cook more at home, I'm bringing back an old classic, lasagna. There are many ways to prepare lasagna, but I'm using the easiest method which does not require boiling the noodles first. I simply layer sauce, cheese and noodles a few times and bake at 350-375 degrees for 45 minutes. It's so easy and very delicious! 

You can find the basic recipe here. I typically forego the ground beef and instead layer in steamed vegetables such as diced zucchini and broccolini. I also use whole wheat lasagna noodles to make the pasta a little healthier. And for a treat, rather than using pre-shredded mozzarella, I use mozzarella balls which I shred by hand and layer on top. It's definitely a rich meal, so I would recommend sticking to just one slice. It makes several servings so you have the option to eat it throughout the week!
