This LAZY LASAGNA might be one of the easiest kid-friendly recipes there is…you don’t have to chop any veggies, and you don’t even have to thaw the frozen ravioli!
But let’s talk cheese real quick. I eat dairy-free most of the time, but I’m not impressed with the dairy-free cheese on the market. So with that, when I eat cheese, I always shred it myself off the block rather than buy the pre-shredded. Why? Well, cheese off the block melts better since there aren’t preservatives and additives, it tastes fresher/better because there aren’t preservatives and anti-caking agents, and it’s believed to be less expensive since you’re not paying for convenience.
PRO TIP: Put the mozzarella in the freezer for a few mins to make shredding a little easier!
