Quick and easy Lasagna Recipe

I LOVE homemade lasagna, what I don’t love is how long it takes to make.  Normally making lasagna is a half day adventure of preparing the ingredients, assembling the lasagna and then finally getting it in to the oven to bake.  There is no way I could make it on a weeknight for the family, so until recently Lasagna was resigned to a weekend only meal.  I was excited to discover Weeknight Lasagna Toss from Kraft Canada.  This quick and easy lasagna recipe allows you to have all of the delicious flavour of traditional lasagna in a faction of the time!

Quick and easy Lasagna Toss Recipe

  • 1 Small Onion diced
  • 3 Cloves of Garlic minced
  • 1 jar 645mL Pasta Sauce
  • 1 2/3 cups of Water
  • 1/4 cup Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing

  • Brown meat and onions in a deep frying pan or large sauce pan, drain any excess fat
  • Add in peppers, garlic, pasta sauce, water and dressing. Bring to a boil

Serve up this delicious Weeknight Lasagna Toss with a side of garden salad and garlic bread for a meal that is sure to satisfy the whole family.

Kraft Canada has great inspiration for Lasagna recipes including Slow-cooker lasagna and Chilli & Cheese Lasagna.  With all the great ideas I am sure you will find one that your family will love, just as much as my boys loved the Weeknight Lasagna Toss!

  1. I have forgotten about this recipe! We really like lasagna too, but with 4 kids anything I make for dinner is quick and easy. I will have to pull this out of the recipe book.

    I love Lasagna but I find it takes so long to make that I generally put off making it. Now this sounds perfect for me, I’ll definitely be trying this out 🙂

    Haven’t tried salad dressing in my lasagna before. Looks like this recipe fits into the “comfort food” category. YUMMY!
