School Night Lasagna


Spring sports have begun, and with 3 boys in 3 sports that meet about 3 times per week each...I don't have a lot of extra time after school. Unfortunately, one of the first things to go is a nice family dinner.

Though I have some picky eaters around here, pasta is usually well received, especially cheesy pasta...like lasagna! Did I mention I've been a bit short on time???

Here is an easy last minute lasagna recipe that can be assembled from pre-made ingredients. Let's have lasagna on a school night, baby!

School Night Lasagna

Ingredients:

Spaghetti sauce
Meatballs (you can make these ahead and freeze them, or purchase them frozen)
Frozen Cheese Ravioli
Mozzarella Cheese
Parmesan Cheese




Directions:

Boil your ravioli until they float.

Cover the bottom of your casserole dish with sauce and a single layer of ravioli:



Sprinkle sliced meatballs on top:



Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese:



Continue layering in this order until your pan is filled, ending with cheese. Sprinkle with Parmesan and bake at 375 degrees for about 1/2 hour or until bubbly.



Now, hurry up! Your baseball/soccer coach is waiting!
