Lasagna is one of those meals that you really can’t beat. It seems like everyone loves it and it doesn’t require a whole lot of fancy ingredients or complicated steps.Today I’m bringing you a twist on the classic. It’s not extremely different from the classic way of preparing lasagna, but I think you’ll really enjoy this one. This meatball lasagna recipe doesn’t exactly involve you rolling out little meatballs, though, I suppose you could make miniature ones and create each layer, that could be fun. Anyway, it is more about the prep-work that’s the same. So, for your meat element, prepare things as you would meatballs – so, go on and choose your favorite recipe, and then it's time to layer up!

I don’t make lasagna often, I must admit. But when I do, I like to switch things up and get a little create!! This recipe was perfect for exactly that, but without having the kiddies notice and then not want to eat. And besides, I know they absolutely love my Italian meatballs, so I’m sure this is in fact, going to become their next favorite dinner!

As you all know, lasagna is one of those dishes that does take time. And because it takes time, it requires that extra amount of ‘made-with-love’! From making homemade tomato sauce, preparing the meat layer – which is now the meatball layer, preparing the noodles, and then grating the cheese….each layer needs to be with TLC. Anyway, you’ll be happy to know that yes, everyone in my house loved this recipe! And…the whole dish took me about 30 minutes start to in the oven! You’ll love it! Bon appetito.

Cheese is a food that is derived from milk and produced in a wide range of flavors, textures, and forms by coagulation of the milk protein casein. It uses the proteins and fat from milk, usually the milk of cows, buffalo, goats, or sheep. During cheese production, the milk is usually acidified, and adding the enzyme rennet causes coagulation. The solids are separated and pressed into final form. Some cheeses have molds on the rind or throughout. Most cheeses melt at cooking temperature. Hundreds of types of cheese from various countries are produced, the styles, textures and flavors depend on the origin of the milk, whether they have been pasteurized, the butterfat content, the bacteria and mold, the processing, and aging.

A meatball is ground or minced meat rolled into a small ball, sometimes along with other ingredients, such as bread crumbs, minced onion, eggs, butter, salt, pepper and other seaonings. Meatballs are cooked by frying, baking, steaming, or braising in sauce. There are many types of meatballs using different types of meats and spices.
