I've been making this dish since I was about 9 years old. It's a family and friends favorite. You can use whatever meat or spaghetti sauce you like. I used Ragu Chunky Garden Combination sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Brown meat and drain.
  3. Boil noodles until tender, then rinse off with cold water. At this time, you may want to mix both cheddars together an both mozzarellas together. ( I like to keep my cheeses separate).
  4. Mix whole jar of Ragu into meat until well blended. (DO NOT THROW AWAY JAR JUST YET) Let simmer for about 10 minutes, occasionally stirring.
  5. Mix tomato paste and water in Ragu jar and shake a few seconds until well blended.
  6. Coat the bottom of a 9X13 inch baking dish with the mixture. (About 4-5 Tablespoons).
  7. Layer lasagna in the order: noodles, cheese, meat, cheese, noodles, cheese, meat, cheese, noodles, cheese. Don't put too much cheese between the layers. The bulk of it should go on the very top.
  8. Spread another 5-6 tablespoons of the tomato paste mixture on the top layer of cheese to prevent burning.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and enjoy!
