Poor Man's Lasagna

45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)
6 ingredients
8 servings
This is how I always fix my lasagna- I don't like messing with the real noodles :-) It's really healthier than you'd expect such a fulfilling meal to be. You can use ground turkey instead of beef. I have also made it with squash and mushrooms instead of meat- which was a nice change. It goes great with a big chunk of freshly toasted garlic bread... Edit: After some of the reviews I thought I'd mention that the pasta sauce I use isn't plain tomato sauce, but a flavored sauce that you'd eat over spaghetti (like chunky garlic mushroom flavor.)
