Monday’s Money-Saving Recipes – Lazy Mom’s Lasagna

Haha!  I’m sure there is a better name for this, but I just came up with that one and liked it!

If I serve honest-to-goodness lasagna, it’s Stouffers.  If I make lasagna from “scratch” then you can bet there is a twist to it.

This is Lazy Mom’s Lasagna:

Start with frozen cheese filled raviolis (I buy Celentano when they are BOGO at Winn-Dixie).  Boil them slightly less than what the directions on the package say.  Drain and add half to a casserole dish.  Layer sauce and cheese (shredded mozzarella, parmesan  or an italian blend) over raviolis, add second layer of raviolis, add more sauce and top with cheese.

The “sauce” is whatever flavor pasta sauce I’m in the mood for (I made this last night with Hunt’s Garlic and Herb).  You can add crumbled ground beef to the sauce if you want a meatier dish.  You can add chopped spinach if you want a healthier twist.

Bake in oven at 350* til heated through (20-25 minutes).  Optional, add more cheese and bake for another 5 minutes.

Dinner is served!  :)))
