Final Lilly recap and No Boil Lasagna Recipe

Yall, I finally totaled everything up last night from the Lilly sale and I save $1,000 plus the tax that we would have had to pay in North Carolina (Pennsylvania has no sales tax on clothes).  How awesome is that?!

Yesterday afternoon, I decided I should make Kevin a yum dinner since he has had a rough couple of weeks with work.  His favorite is lasagna and I have never made it for him.  Truth be told, I've only made it once before and it came out terrible so I had no "lasagna confidence."  Yesterday I just used the standard Muellers recipe on the box!  To go even further, I made garlic bread instead of salad because I knew this would make him REALLY happy.  Haha!  Let's just say this - we hardly ever do pasta in my house and never bread....for obvious reason...not the healthiest!  He was in for a big treat and surprise when he walked in!  

It turned out really good and we have enough for 2 servings last night and 7 more tupperware containers!  Crazy amount!

So here is the recipe:

No Boil Lasagna

8oz. lasagna noodles (1/2 box)
2 eggs
15 oz. ricotta cheese
½ cup parmesan cheese
2 cups of mozzarella cheese
52 oz. favorite sauce
1 lb. hamburger meat or ground Italian sausage
1 tsp. dried parsley flakes

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Brown meat
3. In a medium bowl, combine lightly beated eggs, ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, and 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese.
4. In another bowl, combine browned meat with sauce.
5. In a 9x13 pan, spread 1 cup of meat sauce on the bottom.
6. Lay 1/3 of noodles on top of the meat sauce
7. Spread 1/2 of cheese mixture on top. Continue to layer.
8. Spread 1/3 of meat sauce.
9. Lay 1/3 of noodles.
10. Spread remaining cheese mixture.
11. Spread 1/3 of meat sauce.
12. End with the last 1/3 of noodles then top with last 1/3 of meat sauce.
13. Bake for 55 minutes at 350 degrees.
14. Take out and top with remaining mozzarella cheese and parsley flakes.
15. Bake for 5 more minutes or until cheese melts.
16. Let sit for 15 minutes prior to serving.
17. Enjoy!

Found your blog through Maryland Pink and Green's Friday Follow! Super cute!

Glad your lasagna turned out! Lasagna is one of my favorite meals to make for busy weeks because there is always so much left over.

Sounds good! I recently found a lasagna recipe that came out really well too, which was good, because I was afraid to try making it! I also have a baked ravioli recipe that Steve loves and is super easy!
