Lazy Lasagne
A simple but authentic tasting Lasagne recipe.
Serves: 6-8
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 60 minutes


2 pounds ground round steak
1 teaspoon salt
1 envelope Lawry's spaghetti sauce mix
2 cans (1 pound each) tomatoes
1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon basil
Grated Parmesan cheese
1 package (8 ounces) lasagna noodles
2 packages (6 ounces each) sliced mozzarella cheese

In Dutch oven or large saucepan, brown meat in salt. Add spaghetti sauce mix, tomatoes, tomato sauce, basil and a generous sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. Simmer 30 minutes. Cook lasagne noodles just until tender. in 9 by 11 inch casserole, layer meat sauce, noodles, and Mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Repeat layers, saving enough meat sauce to pour over top layer. Bake in 300-325 degree oven for 20 minutes. This is a simplified version of lasagne, yet has an authentic taste; better by far if made the day before or at least early in the morning, and then baked just before serving.
