With no need to pre-cook noodles, this No Fuss Lasagna is our kind of easy family dinner! We love how the creamy cheese, extra tomato sauce, and added spices melt together to create each perfectly flavorful bite. And since it's a meaty lasagna, we can serve it on its own with a small salad and be completely satisfied!
What You'll Need
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 (28-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
- 1 (14.5-ounce) can Italian-style diced tomatoes
- 1 (10-ounce) package frozen spinach, thawed and well drained
- 1 (15-ounce) container ricotta cheese
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 egg, beaten
- 10 uncooked lasagna noodles
- 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
What to Do
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
In a large skillet, cook ground beef over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, or until browned. Drain off excess liquid. Add salt, pepper, spaghetti sauce, and tomatoes; stir until well blended, then set aside.
In a medium-sized bowl, combine spinach, ricotta and Parmesan cheeses, and egg; mix well. Spread 2 cups of sauce mixture over bottom of prepared baking dish.
Press 4 noodles lengthwise over sauce and 1 noodle crosswise across end of baking dish, completely covering sauce mixture. Spread ricotta mixture evenly over noodles, then sprinkle with 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Top with 1-1/2 cups of sauce mixture, then arrange remaining noodles over sauce, pressing lightly into sauce. Spread remaining sauce over top.
Bake 45 minutes, or until noodles are tender. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella; cover with aluminum foil. Let sit 15 minutes, then cut and serve.
