I’ve only made traditional lasagna one other time and I decided right then and there that it was too fiddly for me to do again. Messing with boiling a huge pot of water and burning my fingers on hot lasagna noodles was just not worth it to me.
Then I learned that you can make delicious lasagna without boiling the noodles and my world was changed. This method makes cooking lasagna a snap. Try it. I know you’ll feel the same.
One thing that I would note is that I’ve only used homemade tomato sauce for this recipe which tends to be a little runnier than store-bought. I don’t think it makes much of a difference, but adding 1/4 cup water to your sauce will give the noodles a little extra liquid to absorb during cooking if you think it might need it.
How to Make No-Boil Lasagna:
Preheat oven to 375. Brown ground beef.
Ladle small amount of tomato sauce on bottom of 9″x13″ greased baking pan.
Add a layer of uncooked lasagna noodles to pan.
Add 1/2 of the cottage cheese, 1/2 of the Parmesan cheese and 1/3 of the shredded mozzarella cheese to the pan.
Add 1/2 of the ground beef and 1/3 of the tomato sauce to the pan.
Repeat steps 3-5.
Add final layers of noodles, remaining tomato sauce and remaining shredded mozzarella cheese.
Cover lasagna with foil and place dish on baking tray.
Bake for 1 hour.
