Penna Lasagne

    1 hour

    I call this lasagne even though I use penne pasta. It's a delicious mix of three cheeses and beef, very easy to make.

    Very good and much easier than messing with lasagna noodles. The whole family asked me to put this in the rotation. I used double the noodles and mozzarella cheese. I also used cottage cheese instead of ricotta. I also added a little more sauce. I layered pasta/cheese mix/sauce/pasta/cheese mix/sauce/pasta/sauce/mozz cheese.  -  26 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    made this for a crowd and it was a hit! Trick is to prepare the night before and refrigerate so flavors blend. I also sprinkle each layer with garlic powder. Delicious!  -  12 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I love this recipe. It is one of my go-to meals during the week. It has the same great taste as lasagna but you don't have to mess with the difficult lasagna noodles. I up the meat and pasta to a pound each, add a little more sauce and mozzarella and cook it in a 13X9 pan. Delicious!!  -  14 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
