Easy No Boil Lasagna
I found this really easy recipe for lasagna on the back of the Skinner brand lasagna box. What I really love about it is, you don't have to boil the lasagna first. Takes much less time, and my boyfriend loved it. He is a very picky eater, so it may be worth your while to give it a try!
1 lb ground beef
3 cups spaghetti sauce (about 28 oz. jar)
1 and 1 half cups water
1 and 3/4 cups ricotta or small curd cottage cheese (about 15 oz container)
2 cups (8 0z) shredded mozzerella or monterey jack cheese
1/2 grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
9 pieces (about 8 0z) Skinner lasagna, uncooked
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In a 3-quart saucepan, brown meat; drain.
Add spaghetti sauce and water. Simmer about 10 minutes.
In bowl, stir together ricotta, one half of the mozzarella, parmesan cheese, eggs, parsley, salt and pepper. Pour abut 1 cup sauce on bottom of 13x9 baking dish. Arrange 3 (UNCOOKED) pasta pieces lengthwise over sauce; cover with about 1 cup of the sauce. Spread one-half cheese filling over sauce. Repeat layers of pasta, sauce and cheese filling. Top with layer of pasta, and remaining sauce; sprinkle with remaining mozerella cheese. Cover with foil. Bake 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additonal 15 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
This recipe make 10 to 12 servings, but if your family is anything like mine, you may want to make a double batch of it. The lasagna I made was gone in a flash!
