Mason Jar Lasagna

Mason Jar Lasagna is a fun way to easily take a favorite dish picnic style for date night or a family dinner at the park!



There is something about mason jars that make me giddy. They are so incredibly useful; they are cute and come in so many shapes and sizes, and they are perfect for taking delicious things just about anywhere! 

There is also something about lasagna that makes me swoon. The layers, the cheesy dreamy textures, the sauce. Sigh, now that folks, is what dinner is all about the euphoria the mention of a food, like lasagna, can give you!


I brought these 2 favorite things together to create an awesome dish to take along with us, while we enjoyed this unseasonably nice Ohio winter weather! Mason Jar Lasagna keeps warm during the transport, is so easy to eat, where ever and it adds so many amazing layers to the dish that who could resist it?



My recipe is a little better than anyone else's because of my secret ingredient cream sauce, but I am going to share it with you because anything this yummy should be shared with a smile!


Ingredients:
1 pound of Ground Beef, browned
1 jar of your favorite pasta sauce
8 lasagna noodles broken into chunks to fit into a mason jar
2 cups of mozzarella or Italian Cheese
1/2 cup of sliced mushrooms
1 cup of diced onions and green peppers
Secret Cream Sauce {see below}

Directions
Begin layering all ingredients into jars until they are almost full. 
Seal the jars and submerge them in a pot of boiling water for about 10-12 minutes until the noodles are cooked and the layers are thoroughly heated. 
Carefully remove them and wrap them in towels to transport, or pop the lids off and enjoy right away. These jars will stay piping hot for about 25 to 30 minutes!





Secret Recipe Cream Sauce for Lasagna
1 block of cream cheese
2 ounces of milk
garlic powder
Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the cream cheese is completely melted


This is such an easy recipe for a yummy dinner that is packed full of veggies and cheese, not to mention meat and sauce!
