Five Ingredient Lasagna…
The inspiration for this recipe came from the weather, the day, and the occassion.
The weather… cool and crisp
The day… Sunday
The occassion… The 13th annual Halloween Parade
Before the parade, my day started by prepping this super easy lasagna! First thing I did was cook extra lean turkey sausage (remove from casing)
As soon as the noodles are cooked, the layering process can begin!
Spread 1/3 of sauce on bottom of 13×9 dish
This lasagna literally took me 20 minutes to put together. I stuck it in the fridge and took my little pumpkin to the Halloween parade.
Here are the parade highlights

Another cutie pie…
