I'm usually not a microwave cook. The food is often rubbery when it comes out and has hot and cold spots...sometimes, it's just a no-no. This recipe is by no means my mother's, but it works for a quick game night with the neighbors. Serve with some canned breadsticks with garlic butter and a salad and you've got an extremely quick meal. You can also try different spaghetti sauces for your own flavor likings.

Directions

  1. Fry the sausage and drain off all the fat and rinse under hot water. Drain on paper towels.
  2. Stir together the sausage, spaghetti sauce, basil, and pepper in a large bowl.
  3. Spread one third the sausage mixture in the bottom of a lightly greased 11x7 microwave safe dish. Top with three noodles, 1 cup ricotta cheese, and 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Repeat the layer with the remaining ingredients. Top evenly with remaining sausage and grated Parmesan cheese.
  4. Cover with a double thickness of plastic wrap. Microwave on medium power for 30 minutes.
  5. Using an oven mitt, carefully lift one corner of the plastic wrap to allow steam to escape. Let stand in the microwave for 5-10 minutes before serving.
