  • - Lean ground beef
  • 2 cups About 2 peppers - Chopped green peppers
  • 3 cloves - Finely chopped garlic
  • 1 Jar 26 oz - Spaghetti sauce
  • 1-2/3 cup - Waer
  • 1/4 cup - Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing
  • 12 - Oven ready Lasagna noodles
  • 1 cup - Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

BROWN meat in large (4-qt.) saucepan on medium heat; drain.
ADD peppers, garlic, spaghetti sauce, water and dressing; bring to boil. Stir in noodles, that have been broken or cut into quarters ; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover.
COOK, stirring occasionally, 10 to 15 min. or until noodles are tender. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover; let stand 5 min. or until cheese is melted.


I have yet to find oven ready lasagna noodles. We just make the noodles out of the box and cut them.

Use a large pot or large electric skillet for this.

We just use the store brand Zesty Italian Dressing.

My family tried this recipe this week. It is definitely a keeper. Very easy and fast to put together after work. It was also great for leftovers at work the next day. Thanks!

This is a quick, easy and delicious recipe! I didn't have lasagna noodles, so substituted with a box of whole-wheat rotini. My husband and I both loved it. Thanks, Bernie!

Thanks for posting this, Bernie! I'm going to try it this weekend. If you use 90% lean ground beef, and reduced-calorie Italian dressing, one serving is worth 13 points for those on Weight Watchers.
