Lasagna, Garlic Bread, Salad

Affiliate Disclosure

So, it’s not a 20 minute meal, but it’s pretty close if you don’t count the oven time. And you just gotta have lasagna once in a while. Why pay $10.00 for so-so lasagna at a restaurant when you could make your own delicious lasagna at home and feed your whole family?

It doesn’t take much longer to go ahead and make 2 lasagnas and put one in the freezer for a meal at another time, a family in need, or to take to a pot luck.

You will need to start the lasagna at least 1 hour before you want to serve. (You’ll have time to clean the kitchen while it bakes!)
