Memories of family meals when I was growing up made me want to always create that with my family. Sunday suppers was something we always enjoyed together. Today I am sharing an easy lasagna for simple Sunday supper.
Growing up suppers together were always important and Sundays suppers were a favorite.
This was a meal we always ate together and was typically a time when my mom would make her biggest meal.
Think simple casseroles, roast and stews that would feed a crowd.
When I moved out on my own believe or not I did not know how to cook.
My roommates and I started a supper club so that we could exchange recipes and learn how to cook.
Well lasagna was the first thing I learned how to cook and I have been making it every since.
Lasagna is the perfect, simple recipe for Sunday suppers.
