I like to refer to this recipe as "lazy lasagna." It's one of my favorite recipes. It is also a perfect weeknight dinner to make when you are craving lasagna but don't have the time or energy to put together traditional lasagna. I'm having one of those days!

1lb lean ground beef (I used lean ground turkey)
1 small onion, chopped
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 tsp garlic powder
2 cups uncooked lasagna pasta (I used Ronzoni Rotini)
1 1/4 cups water
1 jar pasta sauce (I used Bertoni Vodka Sauce)
1 cup mozzarella cheese (I used Kraft Italian Blend)
Cook beef, onion and bell pepper in large sauce pan over medium-high heat about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain.
Stir in remaining ingredients except cheese. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally; reduce heat to low. Simmer uncovered 10 to 12 minutes or until pasta is tender. Sprinkle with cheese. Enjoy!
