Instructions Checklist
  • Break each lasagna noodle into 6 rectangular pieces. Place noodles in a 4-cup microwave-safe bowl. Add water, making sure noodles are covered and water level is about halfway up the bowl. Place the bowl on a microwave-safe plate.

  • Cook in the microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir pasta quickly to keep it from clumping. Cook in 2-minute increments, stirring in between, and emptying any water that has boiled over onto the plate. Repeat until lasagna is tender yet firm to the bite, about 6 minutes total. Drain noodles, reserving 1 tablespoon of the cooking liquid. Return noodles and reserved liquid to the bowl.

  • Stir marinara sauce and chopped tomatoes into the bowl, mixing until incorporated. Sprinkle on basil, and then mozzarella cheese. Cover surface of the bowl with a paper towel to prevent splatter and microwave until cheese is completely melted and tomato sauce is warmed, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Serve immediately.

I did not try it. It sounds fine, especially the quick & easy and individual-serving parts, but why not just boil the pasta first, and take it from there? Just one extra easy pot to clean. I will try this, because it sounds like a neat idea, but I will cook and cool the lasagna noodles first. Much easier to work with I have some nice Fiesta-Ware individual bakers that will work perfect for this recipe. Ooops. I'm sorry. I see this is specifically a microwave meal. Nevermind! Still, I do like the concept. Read More
