  1. Boil lasagna noodles per box directions.
  2. Meanwhile, saute ground beef and/or pork until lightly browned; drain grease from pan. In separate pan, saute onion and garlic in olive oil; add carrots and celery.
  3. When finished, combine meat, vegetables, and 1 jar of Newman's Own Marinara with Mushrooms Pasta Sauce (Newman's Own Garlic Red and Green Pepper is also terrific in this recipe either added or to be used rather than the Mushrooms sauce).
  4. Line baking pan with one layer of noodles; spread meat and veggie mixture; add another layer of noodles and add ricotta cheese (you can also mix the ricotta with a jar of Newman's Own Bombalina sauce for a great twist); place last layer of noodles and spread a thin layer of meat, sauce, and veggie mix; top with grated parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.

This is a great. My carrots were a little crunchy and I added spinach since we are such fans here. It was a hit with the older people in my group but the kids did not like the veggies in their l...

I made this for a friend who said that it was a big hit with her family. The two kinds of meat added interest.

The BEST Lasagna I've found yet!!!

This was ok, but I found it lacked some flavour. I usually add crumbled spicy sausage meat to my lasagnas, and both the hubby and I agreed that my normal addition of sausage meat would make thi...

I lost my old lasagna recipe, and this one looked like a perfect replacement. It turned out quite well, although I made a few changes. I used no-boil noodles, because that's what I had on hand, ...

I loved this recipe! I sauteed onions and garlic and used frozen mixed veggies instead of cooking carrots and celery. It was excellent!
