Marzetti (Lasagna-like pasta dish)

A HAPPY & BLESSED EASTER TO YOU!!



My dear sis-in-love, Susie, made this for our last  family get together.  She also made a large pan of lasagna too...I think this was my favorite of the two dishes. This is a little milder and sweeter (I'm always about sweet stuff!). 

It uses burger, cream of tomato and mushroom soups, mixed with ketchup, sugar, salt & pepper...with creamy mozzarella in between the layers and over the top.

It may seem like the ingredient amounts are 'too much', but it all cooks together and turns out a fabulous & comforting dish. 

A great recipe to serve to a crowd..it can be made ahead and refrigerated, up to 24 hrs. ahead. 

You're so welcome!
