The holidays are over, school is back in session, and winter is still here. Cold weather brings cravings of comfort food that can be difficult to satisfy as a college student. Luckily, there is a lasagna recipe hearty enough to take the chill off your bones and simple enough to make in your dorm.
Homemade Microwave Lasagna
- 1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese
- 4 cups baby spinach, chopped (about 4 ounces), buy the bagged spinach
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 ounces), divided 1/4 cup plus
- 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 24-ounce jar marinara sauce
- 6 no-boil lasagna noodles
In a bowl, combine the ricotta, spinach, 1-1/2 cups of the mozzarella, 1/4 cup of the Parmesan and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.
In the bottom of a microwave-safe 8″ square baking dish, spread 1/2 cup of the sauce. Top with 2 no-bake lasagna noodles, 1/2 cup of sauce and half the ricotta mixture; repeat.
Top with the remaining 2 lasagna noodles, the remaining sauce, 1/2 cup remaining mozzarella and 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan.
Cover with wax or parchment paper, then place a plate on top on top of the wax paper. Place the dish on top of a couple paper towels in the microwave, in case you have any leaking (I did) and microwave on high power (power level 10) until the noodles are tender, about 12-20 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
