Good basic lasagna recipe. Definitely use more sauce than suggested - I usually use at least 2 jars. A hint when using no-boil noodles to keep them from being crunchy or gummy: coat the bottom of the pan with sauce BEFORE you lay the noodles in the pan. I also mix the sausage (or beef or turkey) in with the sauce and always place the sauce on the noodle layer. It's the sauce that gets absorbed by the noodles and cooks them (hence why you need plenty of sauce).


This was simple and very good. A suggestion for "empty-nesters": It's just my hubby and I, so when I make lasagne, I use 4 9 x 5 foil loaf pans. I put some sauce on the bottom, 1 no-boil noodle, and continue layering, using 3 noodles per loaf pan. Bake one, and freeze the rest. When you want to fix on of the frozen ones, put in in the fridge the night before. And for those who had trouble with the no-boil noodles, if you let them soak for a few minutes in hot water it will solve the problem. Still a lot simpler and faster than boiling.


Ok, you won't want to believe this..i didn't either until I tried it myself. Use any of your fav lasagna noodles. They do NOT have to be labeled no-boil. I use any i want and you don't have to use xtra sauce -- they'll be cooked. Try it!!
