An easy to make and bake lasagna that you don't have to cook the noodles first.


  • 2 and 1/2 cups spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 8 oz (9 piece) lasagna (uncooked)
  • 1 3/4 cups (15 oz) ricotta cheese
  • 3 cups (12 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped parsley
  • 1 lb. hamburger (optional)
  • Optional: mushrooms, black olives, onions, bell pepper, pepperoni


Heat oven to 375 degrees F. In saucepan, heat sauce and water. Combine ricotta, 2 cups mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese and parsley. Season to taste.

Pour 3/4 cup sauce in 13x9 inch baking dish; arrange 3 pieces uncooked pasta over sauce (pasta will expand while cooking). Pour 1/2 cup sauce over pasta; spread with hamburger and then half cheese mixture. Cover with 1/2 cup sauce. Repeat layers.


Top with pasta and remaining sauce; sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese. Cover with foil, bake 60 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup mozzarella cheese; let stand 10 minutes.
