    Kerena's Note:

    From one of my many cooking magazines. The sauce can be made ahead and reheated before serving and can be frozen up to a month. The pasta dish can be made a day ahead of baking. It can also be made and frozen for up to a month. Thaw in the refrigerator. To cut time use pasta sauce from a jar and add fresh/dried herbs for more flavor. You can also use premade turkey meatballs. Baking time includes time to bake meatballs and also the completed dish.

      Excellent pasta dish, even with my shortcut of Hunt's Spaghetti sauce, mixed wit 15 oz. tomato sauce (this really sped up the prep!). I particularly loved the meatballs (so juicy and tender) and the little bits of red pepper and g. onion added some zest to it. I added a tsp. of dried onion, too. Thanks for posting, Kerena.

      DH & I loved this meal! I was scared that I would be the only one to like it cause I like lasagna but DH and my kids don't. DH went for 2nds! I added more salt, cayenne, pepper & oregano to the sauce for our taste. We also like more meat so I added some leftover Jimmy Dean Italian sausage that I had in the fridge (didn't want it to go to waste). It was so good and gave me my lasagna fix even though it isn't exactly lasagna. My grandma didn't like to use cottage cheese or ricotta in her lasagna so she would use crm cheese in her this was almost nostalgic for me. I hope more people try this recipe because it was really good. If my DH goes for 2nds on a pasta dish then you know it is delicious!! Thanks!!
