Simple Sausage Lasagna

 Simple Sausage Lasagna
When I saw a lasagna recipe that did not call for precooking the noodles, I was anxious to try this time-saving shortcut. Making some changes and additions to suit my taste, I developed this popular dish that I now call my own.
12 ServingsPrep: 20 min. Bake: 55 min. + standing
