Skip the frozen aisle and opt for this easy homemade lasagna instead. If it's one of those nights where getting dinner on the table is no easy feat, this easy pasta dish could be your weeknight savior. For a speedy meal that the whole family will love (and definitely want seconds), look no further than this simple lasagna.

How to Make It

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.

One of my favorite easy recipes. It is super easy, and my family loves it. I brown the sausage in a pan rather than microwave, but it's still a breeze.

I was very skeptical of a microwave lasagna recipe, but this was excellent and so easy!
