Footnotes

  • Serving Suggestion: Serve with a leafy green salad tossed with KRAFT Calorie-Wise Italian Dressing.
  • Shortcut: Adding water to the sauce helps cook traditional noodles during baking, so you don't have to cook them beforehand. This saves you 15 to 20 minutes of prep time.
  • Easy Cleanup: Placing a layer of sauce under the first layer of noodles will help prevent the noodles from sticking to the bottom of the baking dish.

Great basic recipe! I did tweek it by adding garlic powder, oregano, and basil. I've never made lasagne without cooking the noodles first. I was worried that the noodles might be tough but they were perfect.

I am not a very good cook yet, and I have never made lasagne! This was sooo easy! It takes awhile to bake, but tasted so good :) and lots of leftovers since its just the two of us! I didn't make any changes, except for my kitten licking the raw egg out of the bowl I beat it in (after adding the egg to the cheese mixture)!

This was great! Very simple to make, and tastes great! My kind of cooking! I did make a few changes, such as using dry parsley (and not as much); and pre-cooking the noodles (just a personal preference) so I cut the water to a little less than 1/2 cup; baked for about 40 minutes with the foil on, then took it off and then added the cheese on top, put back on until the cheese bubbled... and it was delicious! My fiance loved it too! Definitely a great starter recipe!
