Quick Lasagna

Quick Lasagna created by canarygirl

No need to cook the noodles first, and only 240 calories per serving. This is from the book, "Quick & Healthy" by Brenda J. Ponichtera. I use the recipe as a starting point and change it however the mood strikes. If you don't have or don't like Ricotta, use three cups of cottage cheese, and process 2 cups in the food processor.

    This was the perfect recipe I was looking for to use left-over spaghetti sauce. I always end up with numerous tubs of frozen sauce in my freezer, and this was a perfect way to use some of it and change things up a bit! It was quick and easy and tasted great!

    This is a really solid starter lasagna recipe! I took some liberties with the amounts (halved the recipe, used more than half of the sauce, added a final top layer of mozzarella, added more spices). I also added some fake ground meat. It turned out really well and left overs still tasted fantastic. Thanks!

    Replaced Mozerella and Parmesan with Ricotta (personal preference.) Super good.

    I had a craving for lasagne, but was not up for the task of my 3 hour version. I'm so glad to have tried this G! It's sooo easy! And GOOD! I dressed up the sauce a bit, with extra seasonings...I think it would be great with chopped peppers and onions, and maybe a meat sauce. The prep for this was just too easy, I had my lasagne in the oven in about 15 minutes! I uncovered the pan for the last 15 minutes and upped the heat a bit to brown the top. YUM! Thanks G! :)
