  • In a casserole dish, layer half the meatball mixture, top with half of the fried tomatoes and a layer of lasagne sheets.
  • Sprinkle with half of the mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
  • Repeat with another layer of meatball mixture, tomatoes and lasagne sheets and finish off with the cheeses.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes until the cheeses are golden brown and bubbling.
