  1. Cook the beef and onion in an 8-quart saucepot over medium high heat until the beef is well browned, stirring often. Pour off any fat.

I cut the meat back by half, used ground turkey instead of ground beef and threw in fresh minced garlic, sliced fresh baby bella mushrooms, chopped fresh red pepper and cubed fresh zucchini to compensate for the missing meat. Even with half vegetables, the family loved this dish. It was great for me because it was simple, fast and used pantry ingredients that I keep on hand for busy nights like tonight.



Wow! So easy and so delicious - perfect for an easy meal yet it tastes like something that took hours. I used half ground beef and half Italian sausage and used one of Prego's regular sauces so I added some fresh mushrooms sauteed with some onion and garlic. I added a little wine to the sauce along with some fresh basil and a can of seasoned petite diced tomatoes. Next time I might even add a litte ricotta cheese for more of "lasagna in a hurry" this was so good. I served this with a garden salad and Pepperidge Farm garlic bread and we had a fabulous dinner in no time at all - fabulous with a glass of wine!



I made this recipe in 2 13x9 Pyrex baking dishes. First I line one pan with heavy duty foil. I leave enough extra foil on the sides so that I can crimp the foil together and freeze it. After it's frozen I pop it out of the dish and leave it in the freezer in the foil wrapper. When I want to bake it I peel off the foil and pop it, frozen, back into the Pyrex pan. I also do this with lasagna.
