Tips for making great lasanga. Post your ideas.
I don't cook my lasagna noodles first, either. I spray the pan with oil and then assemble by layering sauce, uncooked noodles, 3 cheese/egg mixture, sauce and keep repeating. When all but a cup of sauce is left in the can/jar/pot, I add 1 and 1/2 to 2 cups of water to it and mix it up. Then I pour this thinned out sauce all over the lasagna. I bake it 15 minutes and then cover with foil and bake it 1 hour at 350. Allow to sit 15 minutes before slicing. Turns out moist and wonderful.
Do you have to use Ricotta cheese in lasagna?

Mashed tofu works too. Just smash it to the consistency of cottage cheese.
My Mom makes her lasagna with only mozzarella cheese and it tastes yummy!
No you can use cottage cheese in place of Ricotta cheese. I've used cottage cheese in my lasagna for years and it's delicious. You can't tell the difference in the taste.
