  1. Boil lasagna noodles per box directions.
  2. Meanwhile, saute ground beef and/or pork until lightly browned; drain grease from pan. In separate pan, saute onion and garlic in olive oil; add carrots and celery.
  3. When finished, combine meat, vegetables, and 1 jar of Newman's Own Marinara with Mushrooms Pasta Sauce (Newman's Own Garlic Red and Green Pepper is also terrific in this recipe either added or to be used rather than the Mushrooms sauce).
  4. Line baking pan with one layer of noodles; spread meat and veggie mixture; add another layer of noodles and add ricotta cheese (you can also mix the ricotta with a jar of Newman's Own Bombalina sauce for a great twist); place last layer of noodles and spread a thin layer of meat, sauce, and veggie mix; top with grated parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.

If you are looking for a lasagna recipe that isn't too heavy, this is the one for you! A nice balance with plenty of veggies. I ate it the same day, it would be better prepared ahead and reheated, so the flavors have a chance to blend.

Love it! This is the first time I've made a lasagna, and it's the best lasagna I've had! I did alter the recipe, though. I used 1 lb sweet and 1 lb spicy italian bulk chicken sausage instead of the pork and beef, and I mixed a bunch of chopped spinach in with the ricotta cheese. Also, I used 3/4 of a bottle of Newman's Own Sockarooni instead of the marinara because I needed to use it up. I think I'll use the same amount next time because the lasagna sliced up really nicely without a lot of spillage with this amount of moisture. I love the carrots and celery in it!

This is a great. My carrots were a little crunchy and I added spinach since we are such fans here. It was a hit with the older people in my group but the kids did not like the veggies in their lasagna. I would try to get the veggies to be a little more squishy because they would blend in with the noodles more.

I made this for a friend who said that it was a big hit with her family. The two kinds of meat added interest.

The BEST Lasagna I've found yet!!!

This was ok, but I found it lacked some flavour. I usually add crumbled spicy sausage meat to my lasagnas, and both the hubby and I agreed that my normal addition of sausage meat would make this taste great. A good basic recipe in which you can mould into you own favourite lasagna.

I lost my old lasagna recipe, and this one looked like a perfect replacement. It turned out quite well, although I made a few changes. I used no-boil noodles, because that's what I had on hand, and I pureed the veggies before combining them with the sauce (sort of disguises them, which is great for kids - or a husband who continually remind you he's not a rabbit!). I also added a layer of mozzarella before the parmesan, because IMO, lasagna must have plenty of cheese :) Overall, this is a great, simple lasagna recipe, with plenty of room for customization!

I loved this recipe! I sauteed onions and garlic and used frozen mixed veggies instead of cooking carrots and celery. It was excellent!
