EASY MEAT & VEGGIE LASAGNA
– 1 box of First Street Lasagna Noodles
– Olive Oil
– 1 pound ground beef
– 2 jars of Ragu Meat Spaghetti Sauce
– 1 pound of Ricotta Cheese
– 1 1/2 pounds Mozzarella Cheese
– 2 cups shredded Parmesan Cheese
– 1 zucchini, shredded
Boil water and 2 tablespoons (or to your liking) Olive Oil in a pot. Break Lasagna noodles in half and add to boiling water. Cook according to package directions. When done, drain noodles.
While water is coming to a boil, brown Ground Beef in another pot (big enough to add the 2 jars of spaghetti sauce). Drain grease from cooked beef. Add both jars of Ragu Spaghetti Sauce. Grate Zucchini and add to sauce mixture. Simmer until heated through.
In a 9×13 Pyrex dish, ladle enough of the sauce mixture to coat a thin layer in the bottom of the dish. Add a layer of cooked lasagna noodles over the sauce mixture. Ladle more sauce mixture to cover the layer of noodles. Sprinkle Ricotta Cheese over the sauce mixture. Sprinkle desired amount of shredded Mozzarella Cheese and Parmesan Cheese over the Ricotta Cheese.
On the final layer, ladle the sauce mixture over the lasagna noodles. Sprinkle Mozzarella cheese over the sauce mixture. Place the casserole dish in an oven set at 350°F. Bake until cheese on top layer is melted. Serve with a Tossed Green Salad and Garlic Bread! Enjoy!
