Looking for something that’s full of comfort, flavor and super easy to put together in just one pot? I’m one who loves creating meals like this but also not having to wash a million dishes in the process. [ Also this is so yummy the next day so use these glass storage containers ]
We’re big pasta fans in my home but I never have the time to actually great a traditional lasagna because I’m running around doing a million things. I know it’s a good thing when Landon, Lily and even Zach all keep saying “Mmmmm” or ” Super yummy Mom” or ” Tastes JUST like lasagna hunny. You can make this again anytime.”
I love it because not only did it take me any time to prep, cook and create this dish but it keeps everyone full so nobody gets hangry! Phew. So how do we make this delicious dish?
