Lasagne is one of those recipes that there is no easy method of making it. I've come up with what I think is an "as easy as possible" version.


12 cooked lasagne noodles
1 1/2 lbs ground beef, browned and drained
1 large container of ricotta cheese
1 lb shredded mozzarella cheese
1 large jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce (I prefer Prego Traditional)

Pour a few tablespoonfuls of sauce into bottom of your baking dish. I use a 9 x 13 glass pan. Spread the sauce (this is to keep your lasagne from sticking to the bottom of your dish). **Place a layer of noodles in your pan. Spread a few tablespoonfuls of ricotta over the noodles. Top with 1/3 of the burger. Pour some sauce over the burger and spread with the back of your spoon. Top with a few handfuls of shredded cheese. Repeat from ** twice. Cover with foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 15 minutes or until cheese is slightly browned. Allow to cool for a few minutes so that it "sets up"

Serve with a salad and some cheese bread and enjoy!

Would it be really dumb to ask if you cook the lasagna noodles ahead of time???

Yeah, Emeril I am not.
