Not only is this fantastic Lasagna Casserole hearty, flavorful and easy to make…but this recipe makes 2 full 9×13 pans. Freeze one pan for later, or better yet, take a pan hot and steaming to a friend. I made a batch last week to help feed my sons Cross Country Team at thier weekly carb load-pre-race dinner.

It was a hit! I assembled them the day before the dinner, and then just baked on the day of. It worked out super well.

The recipe calls for egg noodles, which cook up super quickly. A win in my book.

A hearty red sauce is made with the addition of sausage, onions and peppers.

Before the casserole is assembled, the egg noodles are tossed with a bit of butter and parmesan cheese. This helps the noodles not get soggy.

Then you just layer sauce, noodles, sauce and sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the top.

Cover and bake!

Hope you get a chance to try it!
