5-Cheese Meaty Lasagna

Enjoy this month’s kitchen-tested recipe – the 5-Cheese Meaty Lasagna!

To save time, prepare the meat sauce ahead of time or use your favorite store-bought sauce instead.

Fortunately, the meat sauce recipe referred to below can be made in large batches that freeze beautifully for future use. For best results with this meat sauce recipe, pulse 4 cups of the chunky meat sauce in a food processor prior to using.

TIP: The key to keeping lasagna from getting soupy is to make sure your noodles are thoroughly dried before assembling.
