Weeknight Lazy Lasagna Recipe

Weeknight Lazy Lasagna Recipe

Ingredients :
8 ounces uncooked lasagna noodles, broken into 2-inch pieces
1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 jar (24 ounces) pasta sauce with meat

How To Make :
Preheat oven to 400°. Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Drain noodles well; stir into cheese mixture.
Spread 1 cup pasta sauce into a greased 11x7-in. baking dish. Layer with half of the noodle mixture and 1 cup sauce; layer with the remaining noodle mixture and sauce. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Cover with greased foil; bake until heated through, 10-15 minutes.

Test Kitchen tips :
This is the perfect recipe to use up broken lasagna noodles, but other pasta shapes like mafalde or bowtie can be used, too.
The cooked lasagna noodles have a tendency to stick together, so stir it into the ricotta cheese mixture right after draining. If made ahead, toss in a small amount of olive oil after draining.
For easy spinach lasagna, add a couple layers of fresh baby spinach (no chopping or pre-cooking required).
Use Italian cheese blend in place of mozzarella and Parmesan for a sharper flavor and (bonus!) fewer ingredients.
