Adapted from Disney Family Food - We make a version of lasagna that I call "Almost Lasagna" that is very versatile and easy to make ahead and heat later. Add a crusty bread and bagged salad, and dinner is complete!

Recipe Ingredients for Almost Lasagna

1 pound elbow macaroni
1 pound ground beef
2 eggs
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 cups Prego spaghetti sauce
4 ounces shredded mozarella cheese
1 cup diced zucchini,
1 cup shredded carrots

Recipe Directions for Almost Lasagna

  1. Brown meat and drain well, if necessary.

  2. While meat is cooking, stir together eggs, ricotta, grated Parmesan and salt and pepper.

  3. Mix cooked meat, macaroni, sauce and veggies. Add ricotta mixture and blend well.

  4. Coat a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray or olive oil and spread half of macaroni mixture evenly over the bottom. Top with a cup of mozzarella and a healthy sprinkle of grated Pamesan. Add the remaining macaroni mixture and top with another cup of mozzarella and another sprinkle of Parmesan. Cover with foil.

  5. At this point the whole thing can go into the refrigerator to be cooked when you're ready.

  6. Heat your oven to 350 degrees F and bake the casserole for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 10 to 20 minutes until the cheese on top is lightly browned and bubbly.
