Easy Lasagna – A Healthy Slice of Life


Easy lasagna? Does that sound like an oxymoron? That’s how I always felt but when I realized how quickly my family would down lasagna after a late night soccer practice, I decided to figure it out. See, when my kids have to eat dinner late, I like to pick an option I know they love to encourage a speedy devouring of the meal to scoot them along to showers and bed at a respectable speed and this easy lasagna does the trick!

Easy lasagna requires a few worthy shortcuts. First, no boil lasagna noodles, obviously. Second, your favorite marinara sauce. Third, buy the pre-grated Parmesan.

It also helps to have a designated lasagna pan, which is deep enough to perfectly accommodate all the layers. I used to make it in a 9×13 Pyrex and while that will work, the depth of a lasagna pan makes a difference.

The method is simple: brown meat, add garlic, add sauce, simmer. Meanwhile beat eggs and then in the same bowl ass the cheeses, parsley, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Then layer: sauce, noodles, cheese mixture two times, then the top layer is noodles, sauce, and a sprinkle of remaining mozzarella. Bake at 350, covered, for 50 minutes, then uncover and bake 15 more. Let it sit for at least 15 minutes and then you’re ready to dig in!

I hope you and your family enjoy this easy lasagna as much as we do; if you make it, please let me know!
