Extra-Easy Lasagna

This Italian classic is sure to please, and this one from My Recipes really is extra easy with only five ingredients. You don't even have to pre-cook the noodles!

Extra-Easy Lasagna

Ingredients

1 pound lean ground beef 
4 cups tomato-basil pasta sauce 
6 uncooked lasagna noodles 
1 (15-ounce) container ricotta cheese 
2 1/2 cups (10 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese 
1/4 cup hot water

How to Make It

Cook beef in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink; drain. Stir in pasta sauce.

Spread one-third of meat sauce in a lightly greased 11- x 7-inch baking dish; layer with 3 noodles and half each of ricotta cheese and mozzarella cheese. (The ricotta cheese layers will be thin.) Repeat procedure; spread remaining one-third of meat sauce over mozzarella cheese. Slowly pour 1/4 cup hot water around inside edge of dish. Tightly cover baking dish with 2 layers of heavy-duty aluminum foil.

Bake at 375° for 45 minutes; uncover and bake 10 more minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Classico Tomato & Basil pasta sauce.
