Microwave Lasagna by Susan

Susan Feliciano


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!

  1. Brown sausage well in large skillet. Pour off any fat. Stir in the Prego sauce and 3-4 tablespoons snipped fresh herbs, such as basil and oregano. Simmer 10 minutes.
  2. Spread 1 cup of sauce in the bottom of an 8x12-inch DEEP microwave-safe baking dish. Lay 3 lasagna noodles evenly over top.
  3. Spoon half the cottage cheese over noodles, and top with half the remaining sauce.
  4. Sprinkle with half the parmesan cheese and half the mozzarella. Then, repeat layers.
  5. Cover tightly with pleated plastic wrap such as Press'N Seal, to seal tightly. Cook 5 minutes on high in the microwave.
  6. Let rest 1 minute, then cook 4 minutes more on high. Remove from microwave and remove plastic wrap.
  7. Cut the slices of provolone cheese in half, and arrange evenly over top of lasagna. Place uncovered in 375° oven for 8-10 minutes to brown and melt the provolone cheese.
  8. Allow to rest 10 minutes before slicing.
