Easy Half Beef Half Cheese All-In -One Lasagna Recipe

Red Gold Tomatoes is celebrating the comfort of lasagna this winter .  Have you ever made lasagna? Does it seem a bit intimidating to make?   I'm here to tell you it is really easy.  Specially with the "All in one" lasagna recipe using dry noodles.  Red Gold provided us with an easy recipe and gift pack for review.  Our bellies could not be happier that they did .

About Red Gold: 

Red Gold Tomatoes have been around since the 1940's.  These tomatoes are homegrown in the Mid West.  Red Gold produces premium quality canned tomatoes and tomato based products for retail, food service, private brands and club stores.

One of the great things about this lasagna is how versatile it really is. You can mix it up by adding different veggies or meats.  I like eggplant sliced and hid in my lasagna but the kids refuse to eat if if I do that. You guys know I have a picky crew. You can go meatless, or load it up with veggies. Or even do chicken or beef or just leave it just the way it is.  We did our lasagna with half ground beef and half cheese.  That way my picky kids would be pleased.

Red Gold All In One Lasagna Recipe

Ingredients you need: 

1/2 cup water
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes (we used Red Gold) 
2 (14.5 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with garlic and oregano (we used Red Gold) 
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning 
salt to taste
1 (16 once) box traditional lasagna noodles 
1 (15 ounce) carton low fat ricotta cheese (I omitted this) 
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese 
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese 

and I added 1/2 lb browned ground beef or I love it with Italian sausage

Preheat your oven to 350.  In a large mixing bowl combine water, crushed and diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning and salt. Cover the bottom of a 9X13 baking dish with 1 1/2 cups of sauce.  Arrange 1/3 of noodles on top of sauce slightly overlapping.  layer with cheese , meat, and more sauce repeating layers until you reach the top and final layer which is cheese.  (I only put beef on half of the lasagna) 
Cover with foil and cook for 1 1/2 hours.  Let stand for ten minutes before serving. 

I even made it easy for you to print the recipe if you'd like.  You might also enjoy our video of me whipping up a batch for you guys to see.  If you don't follow us on You Tube we'd love for you to check us out there.
