Cans Get You Cooking Review: Lasagna

This is a sponsored post on behalf of the Cans Get You Cooking program.

S&W Ready-Cut Italian Recipe Tomatoes with garlic, oregano and basil

This month's Cans Get You Cooking post is using S&W Premium Tomatoes. According to a University of California, Davis study, many canned fruits and vegetables have the same nutrients as their fresh or frozen counterparts. Tomatoes are one that's great to use canned. They are used in many recipes so it's great to keep your pantry stocked with them. I use many different styles of canned tomatoes for my sauces. I love them diced, pureed, sauce, paste, fire roasted... I like to keep them on hand because it's so easy to whip up spaghetti sauce.

This month I used S&W Ready-Cut Italian Recipe Tomatoes to make our favorite lasagna. I used the Italian recipe since it had some of the delicious flavors already in it, giving this dish more oomph. I usually make this in gluten free pasta shells for myself (they get regular pasta), but I went the extra mile and even made my own gluten free pasta sheets! I'm telling ya! Once you make homemade pasta, boxed stuff just isn't the same. I linked below to the recipe I've been trying out. 

 I made this the day before and brought it up to my kid's racing events (it's an all day event so I like to bring our own foods, see a photo of them below). This was a nice change from the normal sub sandwiches I make. We just cut, reheated and ate it up. Check out the adapted ingredients below then click through to follow PW's directions.

For lasagna directions, click here. I pretty much followed PW's directions, browned meats with S&P and onion, drained them and added fresh basil to all components. I made a small dish with gluten free pasta and a 9x13 of regular, just thinner layers.

enjoy! It's soooo dee-licious!
