Easy Cheesy Meatless Lasagna

I am always looking for ways to keep my grocery bill down. One of the best ways I found is by doing at least one meatless meal a week. This is a new one I tried this week. The kids LOVED it. My oldest even had seconds!

3 Lasagna noodles
jar of spaghetti sauce
1 tub of ricotta cheese
1 cup of mozzerella cheese
1/2 cup of parmesean cheese

Preheat the oven to 375.

Boil the lasagna noodles until soft. Meanwhile, mix together the ricotta cheese and 1/4 cup parm cheese.

Put 1/4 cup of spaghetti sauce on the bottom of an 8x8 pan. Cut each lasagna noodle in half and lay two of the halfs side by side on top of the spaghetti sauce. Next, take 1/2 of the cheese mixture and spread it on top of the noodles. Add 1/3 of the spaghetti sauce.

Repeat the first layer with two more noodle halves, the rest of the cheese mixture and more spaghetti sauce. 

For the third layer use the two remaining noodle halves, the rest of the spaghetti sauce and top with moz cheese until it is well covered (about a cup). Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of parm cheese. Cover with foil and bake for about 20 minutes.  Let cool for 5 minutes before cutting and serving.

Yumtastic. :)
