Eat In. Lasagna.

Everyone loves Italian food. It's one of those types of food everyone can agree on. When in doubt of where to eat out, Italian is a sure hit. Most Italian food consists of cheese, noodles, and amazing tomato sauce; it's no wonder everyone loves it.

With a lasagna, you can make a sheet of it and have food for a week. Here's how to make an amazing lasagna.

What you'll need:

--One package of ricotta
--Mozzarella, shredded (you can shred it yourself at home to save a bit of money)
--Parmesan, shredded ("")
--Lasagna noodles
--Red sauce
--Vegetable medley, mushrooms, onions, spinach, tomatoes, asparagus, whatever vegetables you want really.

What you'll do:

1. Saute the vegetables in a dash of olive oil with just a bit of salt and, if you want, Trader Joe's lemon pepper.

2. After all the vegetables are cookedish (not too cooked since they'll go in the oven after this), pour in the tomato sauce.

3. While your veggies are cooking, boil water and add the noodles. Add a dash of olive oil and monitor carefully because they will want to stick together.

4. Just warm the tomato sauce a bit and mix well with the veggies. To spice it up a bit add some delicious merken. You can also add a cream sauce to make it creamy, but that's not necessary.

5. Next, take a square or rectangular pan and spread a thin layer of the sauce at the bottom. Layer the lasagna noodles next, then the variety of cheese.

6. When your pan is full, sprinkle a bit of parmesan on top and pop in the oven. What temperature doesn't really matter because everything is all cooked, it's just getting heated up. When the parmesean on top is melted, you can take your lasagna out of the oven. Let it sit a minute before serving.
