To avoid grabbing fast food, we aim to find quick and easy meals for our family. Michael Angelo’s® Lasagna With Meat Sauce offers a delicious, filling and easy to make meal for our growing family.
We keep at least one frozen meal in our freezer each week to grab and make quickly for those busy weeknights.

How to Prepare Michael Angelo’s® Lasagna With Meat Sauce
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Remove entree from carton.
- Place tray on a cookie sheet on the center rack of the oven (approximately 6-8″ from the heating element).
- Cook with film on for 55-60 minutes.
- Carefully remove entree from oven.
- Remove film and let entree stand for 5 minutes before serving.
Easy Garlic Bread and Salad Side Dishes
We served some delicious garlic bread and salad with our lasagna. You can toss together garlic bread by grabbing a loaf of Italian bread or another bread of your choosing, slicing it and brushing with some softened butter. Then, top with some minced garlic and put the bread in the oven for about 5-8 minutes until crispy.
For the salad, you can be creative and add some apple or pear slices, croutons, etc. to it or just grab an already prepared salad to make this meal even easier. Top with your favorite salad dressing. Serve the garlic bread and the salad with your lasagna and voila – an EASY meal for your busy family.

Chicken, Cut Green Beans + Mashed Potatoes Meal Idea
For a quick and easy meal, we grabbed some chicken breasts out of our freezer, a bag (or two) of Birds Eye® Cut Green Beans and then I whipped up some fresh mashed potatoes. This meal is always a hit with our family and truly takes minimal time.
I simply thaw the chicken breasts, and we choose how we’d like to cook them – bake, grill, smoke, etc. and then season appropriately. For our easy dinner, we made parmesan crusted chicken and homemade mashed potatoes! Then I prepared the Birds Eye® Cut Green Beans in the microwave in the convenient Steamfresh® package while the mashed potatoes are cooking.
What do you think about these meal ideas? Family time is important for our family as are wholesome meals, so I am thankful for these convenient options.
