Meghan's Easy Lasagna

Meghan's Easy Lasagna created by Jen Wiehl

Very easy, flavorful lasagna - a real crowd pleaser! Great for leftovers because it tastes even better the next day - as a matter of fact, you can make it ahead of time and just reheat it. You can also substitute the beef with ground turkey and go with low-fat cheeses - still tastes great.

    Pretty darn good. A bit diff from what I'm used to, but very good. When I took it out of the oven it looked a bit runny, but I covered it with foil (Very Loosely) and let it set for 5 min the took the foil off and let it rest for 15 min. It set up nicely and tasted great. TY!

    I prepared it in the morning before I left to work and put it in the fridge. Hubby then put it in the oven 6 hours later and called to say it was very good. I came home and tried it and he was right. It was even better then the way I used to always prepare it. I think I found a new recipe for lasagna. Thanks Meg

    I wanted to try this because it had colby-monterey cheese in it, plus the brown sugar and seasonings were ones I really like. The problem is, I ended up adding way too much salt. I need more general measurements of the minimum amount of spices needed, and then I can safely add more from there without having to worry about going too over the top.

    Meg, You're amazing. Thanks for my first ever recipe for lasagna. The boy loved it and so did I. I didn't change a thing in it and won't ever. Well, the one thing I did different was 3 lasagna's per layer because the lasagna pan i bought a couple of days ago is a perfect fit for them. ...and I thought making lasagna was going to be tedious and time consuming!!!
