Simple Lasagna

I have made this lasagna many times and it is always a big hit. I make 2 or 3 at a time, because it freezes so well. You can assemble several in the same amount of time it takes to make just one. Cook one, then wrap up the extras un-cooked and place in the freezer for an easy dinner during the week. I have also made individual lasagnas in square 4×8 pirex dishes.

Simple Lasagna

This recipe makes two 9×13 pans of lasagna
