Lasagna - No Boil

No special "no-boil" or "oven-ready" noodles are required for a no-boil lasagna. Just buy the regular noodles and get to baking. :)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Since the noodles aren't boiled first, this lasagna can be put together in a snap. There is a lot of sauce in this recipe which allows the noodles to pull moisture from the dish without drying the lasagna out. The layers are creamy, meaty, and delicious. Sometimes lasagna can be a little soupy when first cut into, but not this one. It easily cuts a beautiful slice. Because of the sausage and the black pepper, this is a little spicy. If you aren't a fan of black pepper, we'd suggest cutting back to your liking. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
