My brother and I are the two pickiest eaters that I know of, and this is our favorite. This recipe doesn’t use anything fancy, and no ricotta cheese, but it’s full of flavor. This is also one of those recipes that is great leftover.

First get the spaghetti sauce cooking. I do this first and let it simmer until the rest of the ingredients are ready. Click here for the spaghetti sauce recipe.

Next boil a big pot of water and cook the lasagna noodles for 10 minutes (or per the package directions). Al dente. I really don’t like the non-pre-cook noodles, the texture turns out funny.

In the meantime, grate the cheeses. I use the Cuisinart and it’s a real lifesaver. I use equal parts of medium cheddar and mozzarella.

Now preheat the oven to 400. While the oven is preheating the lasagna can be assembled. The layers go like this…

  1. Sauce

  2. Noodles (overlapping each other)

  4. Repeat as many times as needed to get to the top of the lasagna pan.

Now that it’s all assembled, put it in the oven until it starts bubbling. Usually about 30 minutes. Let it cool for 5 – 10 minutes before serving.

And that’s it. FYI the corner pieces are the best, fight for them.
