  • Test Kitchen Tips
  • Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
  • Lasagna may be made up to 24 hours ahead through Step 2; refrigerate, covered. Increase baking time from 30 to 45 minutes.

I cut the wasabi by half, and cooked it in a slowcooker at medium. instead of cabbage coleslaw mix, I bought broccolislaw mix (by mistake) it was fantastic.
