Triple Cheesy Lasagna

I’m telling you hubs and I are could be Italians!  I think we have a pasta dish once a week. I just love it! I mean meat, noodles and CHEESE! Come on I know you can’t get enough of this crap delicious food! Chris is a plain kind of guy, doesn’t like much of anything and I mean anything. So if I were making this lasagna for my parents I would add onions and ricotta cheese. Since Chris is really picky I left those items out! On another note, this lasagna is delish and easy to make! It does take a while to cook so if you don’t have a lot of time you could make it over the weekend and put in freezer until ready to eat. It’s lower in calories and who doesn’t love that! Average traditional lasagna is like 450-500 calories for each piece, this one is just 336! I know you’re going to love it! ENJOY!!
