Do You Love Lasagna? Then You Will Not want To Miss This Meatball Lasagna!

Yes, you read the title right! This recipe uses meatballs and egg roll wrappers. The ingredients used make this recipe super easy to put together so you are not spending a lot of time in the kitchen! I am all about easy recipes, but they have to taste great or let's face it, i'll never go back to them again. I think this is one of those recipes you will keep handy for all occassions.

Okay, honestly, I was a little skeptical about this dish the first time I tried it. I have never used egg roll wrappers, but I was amazed at how wonderful this lasagna tasted. The egg roll wrappers actually tasted just like lasagna noodles! Also, i have never used meatballs in lasagna before, but sometimes you have to think out of the box and try new things. It’s easy to make and my family loves it. When I make traditional lasagna it is very time consuming, but this is so quick and easy to put together! I know your family will enjoy this dish as much as mine does. You can add a salad and garlic bread to complete your feast!

You can add your own twists to this, sometimes I make my own sauce rather then using the jar or can sauce. I usually add extra cheese and maybe some more spices, my family loves a strong garlic flavor. I don't use specific brands for my ingredients so it is more budget friendly! Don't be afraid to make this recipe your own special way.
