    -JL-'s Note:

    Easy 6 ingredient Triple meat (pepperoni, sausage and hamburger) lasagna made easier by using frozen cheese ravioli instead of the noodles & ricotta mixture. Tastes just like regular lasagna but much better with the meat combination. A must if you are a meat lovers pizza fan. (and fabulous even if your not). A wonderful new spin on lasagna that I just threw together for a birthday dinner.

      this was amazing! I invited our best friends over for dinner and made a double batch of this knowing we would love it and want leftovers. I baked it in Wiltons sheet pan and it was perfect. Had to bake quite a while to become less soupy. All 7 of us LOVED it. Most had seconds. super easy to make although slightly costly after all the cheese and pepperoni in it, but sooo worth it. Surprisingly both my hubs and myself felt it didn't reheat and taste as good as the first round. But man, that first round was awesome! thanks.

      Thanks for sharing a tasty versatile recipe -JL-!! I didn't have the right size of *anything*, so I probably wasn't totally true to the recipe, but it came out very good. I used light raviolis, 2% mozzarella, turkey pepperoni since in our neck of the woods sandwich pepperoni is hard to come by, and 97% lean ground beef. I used a local brand of hot sausage which was good for flavor. For sauce I used Newman's Own Sockaroni spaghetti sauce. Next time I will probably add some spices to the meat while I am browning it to give the dish a bit more omph. I also think if you like mushrooms they would be great either sauteed with the meat or layered into the dish. Maybe it was my loose interpretation of amounts, but this made WAY more than 4-6 servings, which is fine for us. We'll have leftovers during the week when time is short. Served with garlic bread and a salad for a great Friday night supper!
