I am one of the many moms that have a picky eater under the age of five. If he had his way, he would only eat chicken nuggets, macaroni and cheese, and pudding. After many attempts to make a meal that the whole family will enjoy, I found a recipe in one of my cooking magazines and changed it up to suit my busy lifestyle. This meal is sure to please the picky eaters in your home.
Kid Friendly Lasagna
- 1 pound of lean ground beef
- 1 26 oz. can of Hunts Four Cheese spaghetti sauce
- 1 26 oz. can of Hunts Garlic & Herb spaghetti sauce
- 1 pound Velveeta cheese, cubed
- 6 “no boiling required” lasagna noodles
1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. In a large skillet, cook ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain.
3. Add can of Garlic & Herb spaghetti sauce and half of the can of Four Cheese spaghetti sauce to the ground beef. Stir well and heat through.
4. In a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in baking dish, spoon in half of the meat sauce. Top the meat sauce with three noodles. Cover the noodles with half of the cubed cheese. (Please note: the cubed cheese will not completely cover the noodles. This is fine because the cheese will spread while baking.)
5. Now spoon the rest of the meat sauce over the cheese. Add three more noodles and cover the noodles with the rest of the cheese.
6. Top with remaining Four Cheese spaghetti sauce.
7. Cover baking dish with foil.
8. Bake for 1 hour at 375.
9. Let lasagna set for 10-15 minutes before serving.
Yield: 6-8 servings.
Serve lasagna with a side salad and breadsticks for a complete meal.
This kid friendly lasagna is also great the next day. Simply place a serving in the microwave to heat up. Be sure to cover the lasagna in the microwave because it will splatter and make a mess.
