Homemade Lasagna in a Flash

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Recipe is for 8 X 8 inch pan.

You might not think this could be something to be whipped up in 5 minutes, but it is possible if you know some secret preparation steps! The trick is in the lasagna noodles and the secret noodles are Barilla flat no boil noodles.


All you do is assemble the lasagna. Spread any jarred spaghetti sauce on the bottom of a baking pan. Place a layer of noodles to cover the bottom of the pan (2 strips of noodles will cover an 8 X 8 inch pan) and sprinkle about 1/2-1 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese, add another layer of noodles and spoon on sauce, and then layer some low fat ricotta cheese. Place another layer of noodles and layer again with 1 cup mozzarella cheese, a heavy dash of oregano & 1/4 cup parmesan cheese. Add a fourth layer of noodles and sprinkle top with parmesan cheese and sauce. You may adjust ingredients, spices, etc. and add your own ground beef if desired.

Cover with foil and bake for 50-60 minutes.
