Lasagna is love on a plate. The homemade sauce, the layering of noodles with cheese . . . it's pretty much perfection. So how do you pull it off on a weeknight? No-boil noodles. You can make the lasagna in the morning, cover and refrigerate it, and then bake it just before dinnertime. Serve it with a crunchy romaine salad and garlic bread, and your kids might think you're the best cook ever.
