"This is such a great and easy way to make a really good lasagna, we all love it in my family. I do brown the sausage in a pan rather than microwave though"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Crumble sausage into a plastic colander; place over a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute, and stir. Microwave at HIGH 3 to 3 1/2 minutes more, stirring every 30 seconds, or until sausage is done and no longer pink. Drain well on paper towels. Discard drippings. Rinse and wipe bowl clean.

Step 2

Stir together sausage, spaghetti sauce, basil, and pepper in large bowl.

Step 3

Spread one-third sausage mixture in bottom of a lightly greased 11- x 7-inch microwave-safe baking dish; top with 3 noodles, 1 cup ricotta cheese, and 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers once.

Step 4

Top evenly with remaining sausage mixture and grated Parmesan cheese. Cover with double-thickness plastic wrap, and microwave at MEDIUM (50% power) 30 to 35 minutes. Using an oven mitt, carefully lift one corner of plastic wrap to allow steam to escape, and let stand in microwave 5 minutes before serving.


No special items needed.

I browned the sausage in a skillet and continued with the recipe. The noodles did not cook completely through for me (the middle was still a bit hard) maybe my microwave is not as powerful as yours. However, the flavour was very good. If I were to make this again I would use pre-cooked noodles. Thanks for sharing your recipe here with us.
