As we slowly transition from summer to fall in the Central Valley, making lasagna has been on my mind. I decided to look for a healthier recipe to attempt for my first time since leftovers would probably be on hand for a few evenings. I was pleased to find whole wheat lasagna noodles to use (along with all the other ingredients needed) at my first stop at a nearby grocery store. Along with a healthier recipe, I also wanted to be able to not have a long cook time to be able to enjoy my meal.

Ellie Krieger’s Better Beef Lasagna was the perfect find to my search.
