White Lasagna Casserole

So I've been seeing alot of recipes lately that are pasta dishes with white sauces. I found a super simple and quick weeknight dish that mimics lasagna, but slightly different. I really enjoyed this dish and would totally make it again.

If you are looking for something quick and tasty, this is it. It was ready in 45 min and total prep time was 15min. So on those nights when you really don't have time, this is the meal you should make. Throw together a salad while it is cooking and you are set! Enjoy!

Recipe adapted from

White Lasagna Casserole

egg noodles, cooked (16 oz)

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided

1 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 jar spaghetti sauce (24 oz), or your favorite tomato sauce
