This is the easiest most delicious no boil lasagna recipe I have made, and the source may surprise you. The back of the Barilla lasagna box.
First things first, Barilla is NOT sponsoring this post. I just happen to like the recipe that used to be on the back of the box of their No Boil Lasagne. Now it is a new 5 layer recipe. I prefer this one, mostly because it fits better in my pan. Also, the new one says it bakes in only 30 minutes. I don’t want to bash a recipe that I have never tried before, but I am not sure how the noodles will cook and cheese will melt in only 30 minutes.
For the meat, I use ground beef or pork or turkey (whatever is in the house) and spice it up like my husband’s grandfather’s Italian Sausage before browning. I usually use about 1/4 of the spices omitting the salt for a pound of meat because I like the extra flavor. If you want to go meatless, omit the meat and add a pound of well drained chopped frozen spinach Or any other green or vegetable you want. Feel free to use both meat and spinach – my husband would snub it so I don’t add it.
I follow the recipe pretty closely, except for more cheese and sauce. I always seem to run out of both by the time it comes to the final layer.
Until next time, happy eating.
