Mixed-Up Lasagna is easier than classic lasagna. No need to carefully cook lasagna noodles and take the time to layer them.
For this version you just have to cook the meat and pasta, mix the cheeses together and then mix it all up, pour it into the baking dish and voila!, a dish that has the same taste as lasagna, but much faster and easier.
Mos restaurants use a mixture of ground beef and Italian sausage (such as this) in their lasagna, so that would be a great way to change this recipe up a bit, just use half a pound of ground beef and half a pound of sausage.
I serve this with some sort of garlic bread or bread sticks. It is always a hit with the kids and would be great to serve guests or take to a potluck.
If you would like a pasta dish without meat I have a great recipe for Spinach Manicotti.
