Spicy Italian Sausage Lasagna

Who doesn’t love a good lasagna? Lasagna is a great meal to cook when having a large group of people over or, just when you need some comfort food. When you think of lasagna however, you think of the long process it usually takes. The cooking of the noodles, prepping the cheese mixture, layering it all together and then cooking it. I found that using oven ready pasta (no boil) it cuts the time by at least 15 or 20 minutes. And who doesn’t need an extra 20 minutes of free time? Check out the recipe below and let us know what you think!

  6. Layer (in order) 3-4 uncooked lasagna noodles, then layer ricotta cheese mixture, sauce and then sprinkle shredded mozzarella on top.
  7. Repeat layering.
  8. For the top layer uncooked noodles, remaining sauce and remain mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle a little parmesan on top.
  9. Cover with foil and bake for 55-60 minutes.
