Layered Mini Lasagne Casserole

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Barb Witherspoon

Tastes like lasagne but uses Mafalda, also known as "mini lasagne." Great dish to assemble ahead of time, pop in the oven when ready to serve. Good for potlucks. Recipe came from the San Giorgio Mafalda box.

This was really easy to assemble, but we didn't think it had enough sauce - was a little on the dry side - will try this again but will definitely use more sauce.
