One-Step Microwave Lasagna

Enjoy making this time saving recipe for lasagna...

1 15 1/4-oz jar spaghetti sauce
1/2 C water
8 uncooked lasagna noodles
2 C cottage cheese (large or small curd; low-fat may be substituted)
3 C grated mozzarella cheese
1/2 C grated Parmesan cheese

In a medium mixing bowl, combine prepared spaghetti sauce and water. Set aside.

In a 8" x 12" baking dish, spread 1/3 of the spaghetti sauce. Top sauce with 4 lasagna noodles, 1 C cottage cheese, and 1 C mozzarella cheese. Spoon 1/2 of remaining sauce over the cheese. Top with remaining 4 noodles, 1 C cottage cheese, 1 C mozzarella cheese, and remaining sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Cover with plastic wrap except for one corner.

Microwave at 50% power for 32 to 35 minutes, turning periodically if the microwave does not have a turntable. Sprinkle with remaining 1 C of mozzarella cheese and microwave uncovered on medium heat for 2 more minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

This can also be baked in a conventional oven (using foil instead of plastic wrap) at 350° F for 35 to 45 minutes.

Servings: 8
