Best-est, Easiest Lasagna Ever
No time? Try this no-boil recipe (and chant, "sauce, lasagna, ricotta, mozzarella" like my mother used to do).
1 box lasagna noodles
1 large container ricotta cheese
1 large jar tomato pasta sauce
16 oz mozzarella cheese
1 large onion
1 pound hot italian sausage
2 tablespoons italian seasoning
2/3 cup water
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
Chop onion and sautee with sausage until cooked. Add the jar of pasta sauce and one tablespoon of italian seasoning. Mix together.
In a bowl, mix the ricotta cheese, eggs and a tablespoon of italian seasoning.
Pour your meat sauce into the bottom of a 9" x 13" pan. Place a layer of uncooked lasagna noddles down, across the pan (should be three noodles across and one across the bottom - you may need to break a small piece off the bottom noodle to get it to fit). Spread the ricotta mixture over the noodles, then sprinkle on some of the mozzarella. Repeat this several times until you get to the top of the pan, ending, of course with the mozzarella. (Chant, "sauce, lasagna, ricotta, mozzarella!")
Carefully pour 2/3 cup of water into your pan to help the noodles to cook, then cover it in a tent of aluminum foil and place it in the oven at 350 degrees. Bake it for 40 minutes, then uncover it and bake it for another 10-15 minutes, until the cheese is slightly brown on top.
Let stand for ten minutes, serve and enjoy!
