Quick and easy lasagna you can make in your dorm


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.
