Tip: Make "Lasagna" From Leftover Macaroni

Leftover macaroni with tomato sauce can be transformed to lasagna (instead of using lasagna noodles). Just add some fresh vegetables and cheese. Put everything on an oiled baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees F. After it's ready put some more cheese on top and serve.

Recipe: No Noodles Lasagna


  • 2 Tbsp. corn oil
  • 9 oz. ground turkey
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 cup canned whole tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 packet instant beef broth and seasoning mix
  • 1 Tbsp. dried onion flakes
  • 1/2 tsp. each dried basil leaves, oregano leaves and salt
  • 1/4 tsp. each ground allspice and pepper
  • artificial sweetener to equal 2 tsp. sugar
  • 6 medium zucchini
  • 1 1/3 cup ricotta cheese
  • 6 oz. mozzarella cheese
  • 2 oz. grated Parmesan cheese


For sauce: In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil. Add meat and garlic; saute until meat loses its pink color. Stir in remaining ingredients, except sweetener, zucchini and cheeses.

Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in sweetener.

While sauce is cooking, steam zucchini 5 minutes. Let cool, then cut lengthwise into 1/4 inch slices.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 12x8 baking dish with cooking spray. Layer sauce, zucchini, ricotta, mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese, beginning and ending with sauce.

Bake 1 hour. Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

Makes 8 servings.

Tip: Lasagna with Ravioli

You will need: Cheese ravioli and meat ravioli. Red sauce, red, green and yellow peppers for this recipe.

Cook your raviolis as directed and drain well. Cook your peppers until almost cooked. In a large deep baking pan add your sauce. Add your ravioli very close together and add a layer of peppers (red, yellow and green, pepperoni slices and red (or white) spaghetti sauce (or both mixed together).

Add more sauce on top and sprinkle the top with Parmesan cheese.

Bake at 350 F until golden on top. Cook close to an hour. Just keep your eye on it so it doesn't burn.

Serve with garlic bread and a salad. Good the next day also if there is any left.

Question: Lasagna Made with Bread

Does anyone know of a lasagna recipe where you use bread instead of pasta? Someone made it at a company luncheon and I heard it was called Redneck Lasagna. It was so good and really meaty and garlicky.
