Hubster has been hounding me forever to make lasagna. It’s not that I don’t like it. I just didn’t feel like making it. I stumbled on a bake one, freeze one recipe over at Prudence Pennywise. I love making freezer recipes so that we always have something on hand at a later date. They really come in handy when you don’t feel like cooking!
- 2 cups part skim ricotta cheese
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon each dried basil and pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 and 1/2 cups part skim mozzarella divided
- 4 cups Tomato and Basil Marinara Sauce from a jar or your favorite recipe
- 6 no boil lasagna noodles
In a small bowl, combine ricotta, parmesan, egg, basil, salt and pepper.
Coat a loaf pan with no stick cooking spray. Spread bottom with 1/2 cup marinara sauce. Top with one noodle. Spread thinly with heaping 1/2 cup ricotta mixture. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup mozzarella. Top with 1/2 cup marinara sauce, another noodles, 1/2 cup ricotta mixture and 1/2 cup mozzarella. Top with 1/2 cup marinara sauce, another noodle and 1/2 cup more marinara sauce. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup mozzarella.
Coat a sheet of tin foil with no stick cooking spray. Place on top of pan.
Repeat process for another lasagna. Bake for 40 minutes at 400 degrees. Remove foil and bake an additional ten minutes. (Thaw frozen lasagna completely before baking.)
