Easy Simple Lasagna

Easy  Simple Lasagna – I have been making this easy and simple lasagna recipe for years. It’s really one of those recipes that I just make off the top of my head now. And it’s a family favorite.


Easy simple Lasagnais one of those simple classics that everyone loves. It is so simple to make and who doesn’t love simple right?! I have been making this for years.

I always make my own sauce but you can use your favorite jarred sauce if you like.  I usually make a big pot of sauce on a Sunday morning and let it  simmer for hours. It always has the best flavor when it simmers and cooks slowly. 

Easy Simple Lasagna is a perfect company dinner too. A big slice of lasagna with some meatballs. What is better than that?!

 I usually serve it with a garden salad, and some nice crusty french bread. This also freezes very nicely if you happen to have any leftovers. Or better yet make 2 for one of those nights that you don’t feel like cooking.
