Potluck Lasagna Recipe

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

"Excellent! Loved that it used only 6 noodles for two layers (fewer carbs!). I added some chopped sauteed onion to the meat mixture and a heaping Tbsp of garlic. Also saved about 1/3 C of mozzarella to put on the very top before baking. Other than that, stuck with this good basic recipe. Keeper!"

"I did add some herbs for added flavor. It was a little dry, but that may be because I doubled the recipe. If I make this recipe again, though, I may add a bit of tomato sauce to the meat mixture."
