Spicy Lasagna

Packed with flavor, our Spicy Lasagna is always a big hit!

All of our guests know that we never cook anything boring. We infuse everything we make with tons of flavor, no matter what cuisine we’re creating. So when we make lasagna, we liven up layers of baked pasta with our zesty arrabbiata sauce. Now you can too!

PREP: 30 minutes
COOK: 1 hour + 15 minutes to rest

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 box no-boil lasagna noodles, uncooked
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 (15-ounce) container ricotta cheese
  • 4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (divided)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage or ground beef (cook, crumble and drain)
  • 5 cups arrabbiata sauce

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray baking pan (about 13 x 9 x 3-inches deep) with non-stick cooking spray. Remove 16 lasagna sheets from box. Do not boil. In medium bowl, beat eggs. Stir in ricotta, 2 cups of mozzarella and the Parmesan.
  2. To assemble, slightly overlap sheets when layering lasagna. Noodles will expand during cooking. Spread fillings to edges to seal in and cook the lasagna during baking. Layer in the following order:
      • Spread 1 cup of sauce on bottom of baking pan.
      • Layer 4 uncooked sheets, 1/3 of ricotta mixture, half of browned meat, 1 cup of mozzarella, and 1 cup of sauce.
      • Layer 4 uncooked sheets, 1/3 of ricotta mixture, and 1 cup of sauce.
      • Layer 4 uncooked sheets, the remaining ricotta mixture and browned meat, and 1 cup of sauce.
      • Layer 4 uncooked sheets, the remaining sauce, and remaining 1 cup of mozzarella.
  3. Bake, covered with foil until bubbly, 50-60 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Let rest 15 minutes before cutting.

YIELDS: 12 servings.
