Today was one of those days where I just had too much to accomplish and like zero time in which to accomplish it, so we had lazy lasagna for dinner. I adore lazy lasagna because it requires very little effort, and it’s something I always have the ingredients for in my pantry. At its most basic, this simple recipe only requires tomato sauce, uncooked lasagna noodles and shredded cheese.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Dilute the tomato sauce so it is roughly the consistency of tomato soup. Layer uncooked noodles, tomato sauce and cheese in that order so there is at least two of each layer. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake it for 45-60 minutes, or until the noodles are soft.
As a variation, you can add a layer of green vegetables or cooked meat with the cheese in the middle. If you use canned vegetables, you may not want to dilute the tomato sauce as much, or your lasagna may come out watery.
One of the upsides to doing lasagna this way (aside from not having to navigate pre-cooked lasagna noodles into straight lines in a pan) is that you can prepare it any time, and put it in the oven whenever you are ready. I love simple and straightforward meals.
