Hello friends, would you like a piece of lasagna? Well, I'd love to share with you this super easy and delicious recipe. We love it so much and I enjoy making this when we are entertaining family or friends. This is always great to make and serve for any holiday.
The trick to making this fast and easy dish is using no-boil noodles and no meat.
I made this for dinner recently and it tasted so amazing. It was so easy to make and assemble. I made a large batch for dinner and there was enough pieces left over for the next day.
Pair this with Italian bread and a salad and you have a meal for dinner, a party, or a special occasion.
SUPER EASY LASAGNA RECIPE
Makes 10 to 12 servings.
1 jar of spaghetti sauce (or you can use your own homemade sauce)
1 3/4 cup (15 oz.) ricotta cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1 box oven ready lasagna, uncooked (I used Ronzoni)
4 cups (16 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1) Remove noodles from package. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Have sauce ready to use. 2) In a small bowl, stir together ricotta cheese, egg, basil, and oregano.
1) In a 13x9x2 inch baking dish, spread 3/4 cup of spaghetti sauce on bottom of pan. 2) Place 3 pieces of uncooked noodles crosswise over sauce. Pieces should not overlap or touch side of pan since the noodles will expand when baked. 3) Spread 2/3 cup ricotta mixture evenly over pasta. Spread 3/4 cup spaghetti sauce over ricotta mixture evenly covering pasta completely; sprinkle with 1 cup mozzarella cheese. 4) Repeat these steps 2 and 3 TWO more times. Top with remaining 3 noodles and spread remaining spaghetti sauce over noodles; sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. 5) Cover with foil. Bake 30 minutes; remove foil. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting. Serve with additional sauce, if desired.
** Extra pieces can be stored in a container to use for another time.
** The directions to make this lasagna were from the box of Ronzoni noodles.
