Being a busy mother, I enjoy cooking delicious meals that are quick and easy to prepare. Growing up, my mom used to make this Lazy Woman’s Lasagna on a regular basis and now I know why; it’s extremely easy, quick, and tastes fabulous. Not only is this a great meal to make for a family dinner, but it’s an excellent “go to” meal when taking dinner to a sick friend or family member; it can be cooked right away, or put in the freezer for a later date. After cooking this 5 minute 4 ingredient Lazy Woman’s Lasagna, you’ll never make lasagna any other way. Bon Appetit!
Lazy Woman’s Lasagna
- 1 box lasagna noodles
- 1 pint cottage cheese
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese
- 1 jar spaghetti sauce
- Boil your lasagna noodles.
- While noodels are boiling, spread a thin layer of spaghetti sauce (I prefer using Hunt's Garlic and Herb or Ragu's Garden Vegetable) in a 9 X 13 pan.
- After noodles are cooked, lay 3 noodles on top of your spaghetti sauce (I typically lay my noodles on a paper towel to dry of excess water before making my lasagna)
- Layer these noodles with a few spoonfuls of cottage cheese, spaghetti sauce, and mozzarella cheese (in this order)
- Lay 3 more noodles on top of mozzarella cheese and continue layering with cottage cheese, spaghetti sauce, and mozzarella cheese (I typically do around 5 layers)
- Finish lasagna by spreading a thin layer of spaghetti sauce over top layer of noodles and covering with mozzarella cheese (sometimes I sprinkle Italian seasoning or oregano on top)
- Cover with tin foil and bake for 30 minutes (leave tin foil on for all but last 10 minutes, this way the cheese doesn't fry on top)
