My husband loves this dish. It's easy, and helps promote the milk, cheese and beef products we produce on our farm. It makes a super supper. —Lucinda Walker, Somerset, Pennsylvania

  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) spaghetti sauce with mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 6 lasagna noodles, cooked and rinsed
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Torn fresh basil leaves, optional


  1. In a Dutch oven, brown beef, onion and pepper; drain if necessary. Stir in spaghetti sauce, oregano and basil. Simmer, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes.
  2. In a 10-in. cast-iron or other heavy skillet, spread 1/4 cup of the meat sauce. Top with 3 noodles, cutting to fit as needed. Layer with half of the remaining sauce and half of the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Top with remaining noodles, meat sauce and Parmesan.
