Easy Beef Lasagne

A delicious and quick cheats recipe for beef lasagne, that’s perfect for busy weeknights when you don’t want to slave over a hot stove.

My family love lasagne, but sometimes I just don’t have the energy or desire to be slaving over a hot stove making tomato and béchamel sauces – that’s why this recipe is so simple! This recipe uses pre-made sauces from the supermarket, and only takes 10 minutes to prep and get into the oven!

I use the Latina Lasagna sheets that come in a pack of eight. I place the leftover lasagna sheets in a ziplock bag and freeze them for next time.
