Lasagna Recipe For Dutch Oven Camp Cooking

Making lasagna is always a bit messy … not that it is complicated but it has so many layers and pre-boiling the noodles is one thing that adds to the challenge. My Dutch oven camp-friendly lasagna recipe uses oven-ready noodles to avoid part of that hassle. It serves 4 – 6 (more if you serve it with a side salad and garlic bread, and seriously, who wouldn’t want to do that?!?) Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.
