Easy Lasagna Recipe
EASIEST lasagna recipe! A classic 3 layer lasagna dish, smothered in a quick meat sauce and a blend of cheeses. Easy and fast dinner!
Soak 9 sheets of lasagna noodles in VERY hot water.
Meanwhile, brown beef. Drain fat and add onion then sauté additional 2 minutes.
Add the sauce and ricotta cheese and heat thoroughly.
In a 13 by 9-inch pan, ladle enough sauce to thinly cover the bottom. Layer with 3 lasagna noodles, 2 cups of sauce, 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese. Repeat twice.
Bake at 350° F for 45-55 minutes.
Since most jarred sauces come in 24 oz bottles you can substitute 1 (24 oz jar of sauce) plus 1 cup of water for 32 oz of spaghetti sauce.
Cottage cheese can be used in place of ricotta cheese.
TO FREEZE: Assemble the lasagna per recipe instructions into a disposable foil pan. DO NOT BAKE. Once meat sauce has cooled, cover with foil. Place into a grocery bag to protect from any frost and tie, then place into the freezer. When ready to bake, thaw completely and bake 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Boiling water will soak the noodles faster than using hot tap water. The noodles are ready to be used when they are flexible to bend without snapping.
