How easy can this get! 4 ingredients, a little prep time, then 30 minutes in the oven. Plus this is perfect now that the weather is slowly beginning to change. Think if it as a little bit of comfort food when you don’t have the time to make real lasagna from scratch. We are making this extra special by using one of our favorite sauces from a little restaurant that recently closed. Canale’s traditional sauce is my hubby favorite and we stocked up before they closed their local restaurant. They still have the original restaurant but that is about 45 minutes away from our house. It is good thing though that we can get the sauce at the local grocery store.
So, give this a try and let me know what you think.
