    Default No-boil lasagna

    Does anyone have a recipe for no-boil lasagna? I unearthed some
    lasagna noodles from my pantry, and want to make use of them...but my
    mom's recipe for lasagna (although very tasty) is too time intensive
    for a weekday.

    Suzanne;

    I use the 'regular' lasagna noodles WITHOUT boiling them to make lasagna.
    They are much cheaper than the no-boil noodles and have more umph to them
    too.

    I make a lasagna, using my favorite recipe and thin down the sauce a bit.
    Sometimes I use a canned spaghetti sauce, sometimes I make my own, so how
    much tomato juice (or V-8) or water I add varies. I thin it to the
    consistancy of a thick soup and always put the sauce on either side of the
    noodles when layering. I keep it in the refrigerator overnight then bake
    the next day.

    The other thing I like to do is to freeze it after assembly, but before
    baking. Once frozen, slip it out of your baking dish and wrap in foil then
    put in a zip top freezer bag. Be sure to mark the bag with your baking
    directions. When ready to thaw, place frozen lasagna back into the original
    baking dish, being sure to remove all the foil. Once thawed, bake following
    your recipe's directions.

    I have used this recipe for years. Somehow I never end up with enough meat so
    the alum foil sticks to the cheese. So I just spray Pam on the foil first now.
    Last time I used Meaty Spag sauce and left out the ground beef. It turned out
    wonderful. Less time and fat too. BF didn't even noticed. He actually commented
    on how good it was.
