Lasagna has become a family favorite dinner. It is also something that I can put together quickly on a busy school night.
1 lb hamburger or turkey burger
1 jar of spaghetti sauce
1 box Lasagna noodles
16 oz mozzarella cheese
about 3/4 cup parmesan cheese
Start by browning up about one pound of hamburger or turkey burger. Drain the grease.
Meanwhile, while the hamburger is browning, get a large pot of water boiling on the stove.
When the hamburger is brown, add the jar of spaghetti sauce. Sometimes I add Italian seasoning to the mixture, but that is optional. Let the sauce simmer.
When the water boils, cook the noodles for about 2 minutes under the suggested cook time.
In a 9 X 13 inch pan, spread a thin layer of sauce along the bottom. Sprinkle the sauce with a little bit of parmesan cheese. Then add the first layer of noodles. Top the noodles with more sauce and parmesan cheese. 

Add a thin layer of mozzarella cheese.

Repeat layers (noodles, sauce, parmesan cheese, and mozzarella cheese) until ingredients are gone. Sometimes I have extra noodles. If you like your lasagna a little saucier, add more sauce.

In a 400 degree oven, cook lasagna for 30-40 minutes, or until cheese is melted and browned to your liking.
