As far as I know, I’m not Italian but sometimes my cravings for Italian food are so great I think there might be some Italian gene in my gene pool somewhere.
I really have been craving lasagna and unfortunately I can’t just run out and buy one or go to my local Italian chain restaurant. I have to make it myself. So it being a rainy, dreary Sunday that’s what I decided to do.
1 14 oz jar of Prego Italian Sauce Flavored with Meat
1 1/2 pounds of ground chuck
4 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
1- 10oz box Tinkyada Brown Rice Pasta Lasagna noodles
Preheat your oven to 375.
Fill a 6 Quart stockpot with water, add a tablespoon of oil and lots of salt (I once heard on a cooking show when cooking pasta you want the water to taste like the ocean). Place the stockpot on your stove top and place a lid on the stockpot bringing the water to a roiling boil. When boiling add complete box of Tinkyada Brown Rice Pasta Lasagna noodles, cook per package instructions.
Brown ground chuck until cooked through, drain off excess grease. Pour in Prego Italian Sauce Flavored with Meat stir to combine and turn to low and let simmer while noodles cook.
In a casserole dish (mine is 1 1/2 quarts and shallow) start with a layer of the meat sauce, then the noodles then the cheese. continue process until you end with the layer of cheese.
Place into preheated oven and cook at least 20 minutes or until cheese top is as brown as you prefer. Serve with salad or green beans and enjoy.
