 Weeknights can get extremely busy, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a delicious home cooked meal with your family. Nothing says comfort quite like lasagna. If you’ve been here before, you know it is my daughter’s favorite meal. Actually, it is the only meal that she eats, seriously. Not that I blame her lasagna is delicious; it just usually takes a LONG time to prepare.

 A quick and easy turkey tomato sauce and no-boil noodles make lasagna a great choice for any day of the week, no matter how busy. Using pan lining paper prevents a baked-on, caked-on cheesy mess, making your clean up time quick and easy as well. Less time in the kitchen means you have more time for what’s truly important.
