Simple All-In-One Skinny Lasagna #RedGoldRecipes and #Giveaway (ENDED)

Skinny Lasagna


Every year, my husband requests lasagna for his birthday dinner. I know it’s coming, but I’m never prepared for the day long preparation of making the sauce and mixing up the cheese filling. Not to mention boiling the noodles and trying to keep them separated and in whole pieces. Finally, the mess and sheer number of dishes required is enough to send me to the grocery store to pick up a frozen lasagna and call it my own.

That has all changed now. Red Gold Tomatoes shared their super easy recipe for lasagna and I’m sold!  I didn’t even have to boil the noodles first. What?!? I made their healthier version of lasagna for New Year’s Day and feel pretty confident that I (or my husband who makes nothing but scrambled eggs) can have lasagna any month of the year now. The Laura’s Lean Beef, by the way, was the perfect addition without all the fat. It’s nice to have an option other than ground turkey.

Here is their yummy recipe, but be sure to enter our giveaway right below!
