When we say easy, we mean easy. You don't even have to cook the noodles for this speedy yet impressive lasagna that always gets rave reviews. Lasagna is a family favorite, but this version is extra-special because it only requires 5 quick ingredients: ground beef, pasta sauce, lasagna noodles, ricotta cheese, and shredded mozzarella (we don’t count the water!). It’s rated 5 stars for a reason. Pro tip: Make a double batch: Enjoy one now and freeze one for a quick meal on a busy weeknight.
This dish pairs well with green beans, mushrooms, broccoli, asparagus, salad, or an assortment of roasted vegetables. One could swap out the beef for chicken or sausage, or one could replace red sauce with white sauce. Additional cheeses could also be added. When entertaining guests, this could be served with the classic bread and salad combination.
