Recipe

Lazy Lasagna

I keep re-shredded cheese around for when I am in a hurry, but something is added to keep the shreds from returning to their unshredded state. If you have a few minutes, buy a small block of cheese and go shred. Likewise, shred or grate the Parmesan cheese as well. your taste buds will thank you.

Times

  • Prep Time : 20 min
  • Cook Time : 20 min
  • Ready Time : 40 min

Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. of rotini or penne pasta
  • 1 16 oz. container of ricotta cheese (low-fat ok)
  • 1 8 oz. block of mozzarella cheese (low-fat ok)
  • 1 26-32 oz. jar of marinara sauce
  • Parmesan cheese, to taste

Directions

Preparation

1 If you are planning to bake the lasagna, preheat oven to 350F.
2 Boil water in a large (4 qt. minimum) pot. Add pasta and cook about one minute less than package directions (it will continue to cook while sauced later (the lasagna, not you)).
3 While the pasta is cooking, pour about a cup of sauce into a large casserole dish.
4 Into a large bowl, shred the mozzarella cheese.
5 When the pasta is cooked, drain, then plop it over the sauce, followed by plops of the ricotta and handfuls of the mozarella.
6 Pour remaining sauce over cheese plops.
7 Using a large spoon (wooden preferred), mish up the pasta from the bottom, making sure that every bit of pasta is covered evenly.
8 Either loosely cover with casserole lid or wax paper, and nuke at medium power (about 60%) for 6-8 minutes, depending upon your microwave, or bake, uncovered, at 350F for 20 minutes, or until the top gets a little crusty.
9 Let everyone serve themselves. Remember the title!

I thought I invented Lazy Lasagna.  But it seems like half the blogs out there have invented it as well.
