Barilla Pasta

The first was Italy’s #1 brand of pasta – Barilla Pasta. You know, the one you can find in the blue box. Barilla makes a quick, easy, and versatile dinner that everyone loves. It brings Al Dente perfection to every pasta meal.

The other key item I grabbed was sausage from Johnsonville. Their sausage is convenient & flavorful. All the spices and flavors are built into Johnsonville Sausages – making recipe prep easy! I didn’t need any extra spices in making this meal because the sausage packs enough flavor to make this dish amazing. I especially love the fennel!

Their protein-packed sausage is flavorful and versatile. Use link sausage in a sandwich or coined for pasta dishes. The ground Italian sausage is easy to use in pasta, pizza, soups, chilies, etc. I ended up using the ground version.

Lasagna tends to be one of those go to family staple meals. Everyone is usually happy to discover it on the menu for the week. However, it can be time consuming and costly. Now enter in the recipe for Lazy Lasagna.
