Homemade Lasagna Recipe with Red Gold Tomatoes
This is a compensated sponsored post, though all opinions are my own. A food kit was provided to me by Red Gold Tomatoes with the ingredients to make the delicious lasagna recipe below.
One of my favorite dishes is Lasagna. So when Red Gold contacted me and asked if I would help with the Red Gold Simple Gourmet Lasagna Party, I was thrilled!
Red Gold is launching their Food Brings People Together campaign. They works with local family farms, some here in Michigan, to grow their great tasting tomatoes. I used their canned tomatoes to make this easy classic lasagna.
The kit includes:
2 – 14 oz cans of Red Gold diced tomatoes with Basil Garlic and Oregano
1 – 28 oz can Red Gold crushed tomatoes
a package of lasagna noodles
a Laura’s Lean beef apron
a coupon for Laura’s Lean Beef product

My husband loved the lasagna so much, he sent me a text telling me how great it was. He rarely sends me a text to say my food was great. Maybe one other time.
