Oven Ready Lasagna

Pin It

Lasagna is always a good meal; not to hard to put together either.

The reason I call this one oven ready lasagna is because of the noodles. I’ve never tried noodles that were oven ready before and decided to give this a try. Oven ready noodles means there is no boiling them. You just put them into your pan and add the layers.

I used the recipe right off the box of the oven ready noodles as well. Not something I usually do. I used ricotta already made up that is store bought. Not something I’m use to using. I like to make my own Ricotta because it is creamier. Either hamburger or veggie meat is good in this. I like it both ways.

Overall the lasagna turned out great. I thought it was a bit on the drier side but non the less really good. It must have been since my family scarfed it all up!
