Microwave Lasagna by Susan

Well, I did it - I made a no-boil-the-noodles microwave lasagna recipe from a 20+ year old memory combined with a little cooking smarts. The noodles turned out beautifully, but it did make quite a mess in my microwave, even though it was tightly covered with press'n seal. Next time I will use a much DEEPER pan, because the layers filled it up too close to the top.

WOW! One serving has 460 calories, 17 grams fat, 37 grams carbohydrates, 5 grams fiber, and 38 grams protein. I can't eat too much of this. But it sure is good!
