A classic Italian combination is remade into a creamy, family-pleasing casserole in this quick and easy dish. "This recipe was given to me several years ago," notes Ellen Thompson from Springfield, Ohio. "My family never grows tired of it."
A satisfying supper's just 15 minutes away with this can't-miss stovetop dish. As Janalee Watkins of Vernal, Utah explains, "Four cheeses blend with the ground beef and tomatoes for a pasta entree that's rich and flavorful."
“Most lasagnas have too much salt and fat for me, so I came up with this version,” notes Dorothea Rickner of Rochester, New York. “It’s fairly easy to prepare and goes great with a salad and toasted garlic bread.”
“I simmer this hearty sauce in large batches, freeze it and use it for spaghetti, lasagna, mostaccioli and pizza,” writes Ellen Stringer of Fairmont, West Virginia. “I adapted the original recipe until I came up with the perfect sauce. I've received many compliments from friends and family. I simmer it in a large electric roaster instead of on the stovetop,” she says.
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
“Looking for something quick but 'different' for dinner one night, I was browsing through a Taste of Home cookbook,“ shares Debbie Pirlot from Green Bay, Wisconsin. “I found two easy recipes with similar ingredients and decided to combine them. The result is this rich and delicious recipe that my family really enjoys.“
This is a variation on a lasagna dish a coworker made for a company potluck. When I was expecting our third son, I often prepared meals and froze them. It was so nice to have a substantial entree like this one to bake. —Colleen Wolfisberg, Everson, Washington
