A Little Help for the Holidays from Kraft – 45 Minute Oven Baked Lasagna Recipe
If you know me, you know how much I love lasagna. I remember reading “Garfield” cartoons and thinking, “Dang, lasagna really does sound good right now.” It didn’t last long when my mom would make it growing up, so there often times weren’t leftovers.
When I became an adult and started cooking for myself, I found that I didn’t make it too often because it easily became a 2-hour long process. I would make the sauce, which would cook for about an hour. Then I would boil the noodles. Then I would create the actual casserole, which still had to cook in the oven for another 45 minutes.
Well, I’ve discovered a quick and easy way to make Yummy Lasagna in 45 minutes using Kraft Shredded Cheese. Yes people, I said 45 minutes! Ok, so check it out. Here are the ingredients and directions on how to make it.
