Expert Tips

  • Clever Cook: Just about everyone loves lasagna, but few would argue that its prep—boiling, draining and handling the hot slippery noodle—is a walk in the park. The beauty of this lasagna is that it lets you skip all those steps. When you assemble the dish a day ahead, the uncooked noodles have time to absorb the liquid and become tender. Voilà! Tasty lasagna without the hassle.
  • Instead of Italian sausage, try making this lasagna with ground beef instead.
  • For added flavor, use provolone cheese instead of the mozzarella.
