Families everywhere are wondering what to have for dinner. You want something fast and easy and nutritious and don’t want to have to run out for fast food. You you really need is a classic meal that take little time to make. Here is an idea to help you achieve that ideal.
You will need:
1 can of stewed tomatoes with oregano and basil
1/2 a box of lasagna noodles
2 cups of your cheese of choice, shredded
1 pot, for boiling your noodles
1 casserole dish
First boil the lasagna noodles on high for twenty minutes, or until you have tender noodles. If you’re working with a smaller casserole dish, later you’ll need to break the noodles in half. While your noodles are boiling put your can of tomatoes in the blender and puree. This is also a good time to shred the your cheese if you aren’t using pre-shredded cheese. Preheat the oven to 350* F.
After your noodles are done boiling start to layer your noodles, tomato puree, and cheese. You’ll only need two or three layers. Place the finished product in the preheated oven for fifteen minutes to heat up the sauce and melt your cheese. When the timer goes off, remove your lasagna and let it cool for five minutes. From beginning to end your homemade lasagna should have taken forty to forty five minutes to make. It should be able to feed four to six people.
There are a number of variations that can be made on this simple recipe. You can add extra cheese if you are a cheese fanatic. You can also mix cheese rather than just have your standard mozzarella. You can also add a fourth ingredient such as spinach, ground beef, or a can of chicken. This can round out your meal and make it more filling.
