Lasagna Casserole has all the elements of the traditional lasagna. It has the noodles, the meat, the cheese, and the sauce but the process is quick and easy!
True confessions. I have only made a traditional, layered lasagna once in my life. I mainly did it just so I could say I did it. It’s not because I don’t like lasagna, I love a good lasagna. I love the cheese, the sauce, and everything about it. The thing I don’t like is the process of making it. I just find the whole process too time consuming. My solution to a lasagna craving use to be to buy a frozen lasagna at Costco!
This Lasagna Casserole has everything your classic, traditional lasagna has, it is just in a different shape and size and it’s so easy! You boil your noodles. I like to use fussili noodles because they hold lots of sauce in those little indentations!
The noodles are combined with a yummy meat sauce you make and then combined with lots of mozzarella cheese. Put it all into a baking dish and then cover with more mozzarella cheese and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. The more cheese the better as far as I’m concerned!
Bake it until it is heated through and the cheese is melted and golden brown on top. All that is left to do is grab a spoon and dig in.
Lasagna is comfort food at our house and I love how easy this lasagna casserole makes it to satisfy those comfort food cravings!
