Lazy Day Lasagna

Lazy Day Lasagna

The Lazy Day Lasagna is a perfect quick-prep meal for low energy days. No need to heat the sauce or cook the noodles; just throw it all in a dish and bake! Simple lasagna recipes like this one are low in maintenance and high in flavor.

Cooking Time1 hr 15 min


  • 1 (32-ounce) jar thick spaghetti sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups (about 15-ounces) ricotta cheese or low-fat/fat-free cottage cheese
  • 3 cups (about 12-ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (I use the fat-free)
  • 2 eggs or egg substitute
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Simmer sauce and water about 10 minutes. (Here, I have become lazy. I just pour my bottle of sauce--usually a 26-28 ounce bottle--into a 32-ounce Pyrex measuring jar and add water to the top. I don't bother heating it, and it always works just fine.)
  3. Pour about 1 cup of sauce in the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch pan. Layer three uncooked lasagna noodles over sauce. (The noodles will later expand to fill the empty spaces). Cover with about 1 1/2 cups sauce.
  4. Mix together ricotta, spices and eggs for filling. Spread 1/2 filling over sauce.
  5. Put some sauce over that layer, and then add three more lasagna noodles, the rest of the filling, and then some more sauce. Top with three more lasagna noodles and the remaining sauce. Add parmesan and mozzerella cheese on top.
  6. Cover tightly with foil. Bake at 350 degrees F for one hour. Remove foil and cook uncovered for about 15 more minutes. Let stand ten minutes. If you wish, brown one pound ground beef and add to sauce.

This lazy lasagna recipe looks very tasty and enticing. Lasagna is usually a laborious task but if you can make it quicker and still enjoy it is such a bonus. I'm definitely going to try and make it this way. I'm sure the whole family is going to love it.

should we use no-boil lasagna noodles?

Looks like a recipe I would use, however it needs some clarification. The filling? Would that be the cottage (or ricotta) cheese mixed with the eggs? In other lasagna recipes, I find it easier to spread the "filling" over the noodles, then the sauce. Also curious, like Hinge, when do the cheeses go on?

@jackolynh 0612784, Thanks for bringing this to our attention! We've updated the recipe. We apologize for any inconvenience, --editors of RecipeLion

@cogramma - The number of noodles needed for this dish is listed in step 3 of the instructions. There are three layers of three noodles each, so that would be a total of 9 lasagna noodles. Hope this helps! -The editors of RecipeLion

no mention of the appears there is much cheese on the top - in the pretty picture..

The directions call for uncooked lasagna noodles but the quantity is NOT even listed in the Ingredients!! How much is needed for this recipe? Thank you!!
