Hearty Beef Lasagna
Vegetarian lasagna has its place. This is not that place.
Why This Recipe Works
Meat lasagna can take all day to make. We streamlined the process by whisking together a quick no-cook cheesy filling and shaving time off the meat sauce prep. Since the sauce continues to cook in the oven as the lasagna bakes, we skipped the traditional but unnecessary long simmer on the stovetop. We tweaked the ratios of the components until we had lasagna that tasted markedly more meaty, rather than just tomato- and cheese-packed.
