Easy Whole Grain Lasagna

This week has been extremely hectic around our house. 

Marc started a new job that requires him to work 17 (12 hour) days on, 4 days off.  Since I've been busy teaching evening courses the past few months (and also taking a few classes myself) there hasn't been a whole lot of time for cooking in our house.  Because my weekdays are so busy, I think it's really important to take the time on weekends to prepare a nice meal, and if I'm feeling extra ambitious, a few extra meals to get us through the week.

Lasagna is a great choice for a make ahead meal because it's really easy to prepare and freezes extremely well - it also happens to be Marc's favourite food!  I could probably make lasagna every day of the week and he wouldn't complain.  

I used whole grain pasta this time around and since I already had the ingredients on hand, I went with with the lasagna recipe on the back of the box.  To go with the lasagna I made this garlic toast with a caesar salad and even enjoyed a few glasses of red wine!   After dinner, we ended up staying in and renting a new comedy that just came out - the perfect way to end a busy week! 

If you are interested in learning more about whole grains be sure to check out this website, which is full of great information!
