Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Quickie Lasagna

Lasagna, as well as two day old cold lasagna leftovers, are two of the many foods that seem to taste better in the summer, and this quickie version makes it a whole lot easier to enjoy.  Quarter and boil your dried lasagna noodles, draining about a minute before the recommended cooking time.  In the meantime sauté your burger, sausage, onions, garlic, or in this case, spinach and mushrooms, in a large pot until cooked before adding a jar of your favorite red sauce, a pint of ricotta, and a cup of grated parmesan.  Adjust your spices, stir in your drained noodles, and transfer to a baking dish rearranging any noodles that may be hanging over the lip of your dish.  Top with sliced mozzarella and bake for approximately 45 minutes.  You may never layer a lasagna again.
