Easy Lasagna

Easy Lasagna

Lasagna is one of those perfect homemade meals. It freezes really well, and is also a perfect leftover option for lunches. We always made enough to put into our kid’s lunch thermoses – they always came back empty.
Enjoy our family recipe, and make an extra one for the freezer to pull out on a busy week.
