This is so easy and one of our family favorites. We are garlic lovers and add a little extra along with fresh ground parmesan. We like the added extra of Printable coupons from here and Just makes it that much better.

This was the best lasagna I have ever eaten. This is a keeper.

Recipe sounds really good but I do not understand why a professional would tell you to add ingredients to the ground beef while cooking and then to drain it. You are pouring OFF Flavor! Drain Before you add the flavor!!!

I like the idea of covering the pan with foil which is what allows the pasta to get soft so you don't have to boil twice. I can't wait to try this recipe ****
