One-Step Lasagna

  • 1 pound of meatless sausage patties or links
  • 1 jar (15 ounces) spaghetti sauce or 2 cups of the fresh tomato sauce (recipe below)
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1 package (7 ounces) uncooked lasagna noodles, trimmed to fit a 12x7-inch baking dish
  • 1 container (15 ounces) ricotta cheese, divided
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • Chopped fresh parsley

Crumble the sausage in a 2-quart microproof casserole dish. Cover the dish with a casserole lid and microwave on High, 5 minutes, stirring once during cooking time. Add spaghetti sauce and water; mix well.

Spread one-third of the vegetarian meat sauce in 12x7-inch microproof baking dish. Arrange half the uncooked noodles over sauce. Spread with one-third of the ricotta. Top with one-third of the vegetarian meat sauce. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the mozzarella. Repeat the layers, with the remaining noodles, ricotta and vegetarian meat sauce. Top with the parmesan cheese.

Double wrap the dish tightly with plastic wrap. Cook on High for 15 minutes. Cook on 50% power for 12 to 15 minutes.

Sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella. Cook on High 2 minutes, or until the cheese melts. Sprinkle with more parmesan cheese if desired.
