Quick Lasagne

Ah, lasagna, that layered pasta and meat casserole made of comfort and calories! This recipe is called Quick Lasagna, but I can’t see how it would be much quicker than “slow” lasagna, except maybe that the sauce is not simmered all day.

Shells – Cheese Filled (F Kotch) 1 12 … Continue reading
