It's a shame that Suzanne Dole only fixes Lasagna with Two Sauces on an annual basis. The satisfying casserole is loaded with great flavor. "Please help me make over this luscious lasagna," writes the Claremont, New Hampshire cook. "It's one of our favorites, but with these ingredients, we can only enjoy it once a year."
It's almost hard to believe that this traditional, mouthwatering dish comes from the microwave. While the lasagna cooks, use your oven to bake some rolls or bread to complete the meal.—Betty Ruenholl, Syracuse, Nebraska
I learned to cook when I was growing up on a dairy farm and was a member of 4-H. This is one of my favorite recipes—it makes good use of the abundance of squash we always seem to have in summer and fall. You'll also find it freezes well.—Marilyn Stroud, Larsen, Wisconsin
Convenient no-cook lasagna noodles take the work out of this traditional favorite adapted for the slow cooker. Because it's so easy to assemble, it's great for workdays as well as weekends. We like it accompanied by Parmesan bread or garlic cheese toast. —Lisa Micheletti
Growing up, this was the meal I always wanted on my birthday. Mother made the sauce from scratch, but I use store-bought spaghetti sauce to save time. Replace the ground beef with Italian sausage for more spice. —Deb Morrison, Skiatook, Oklahoma
Tortillas replace lasagna noodles in this beefy casserole with a south-of-the-border twist. With salsa, enchilada sauce, chilies, cheese and refried beans, it's a fiesta of flavors. —Tina Newhauser, Peterborough, New Hampshire
