Lickity Split Lasagna

I always tell people I'm lazy and that's why I have so many ideas. I'm always trying to figure out how I can do A, B, or C with less effort, money and mess. Sometimes my ideas are ridiculous. Ok, most of the time. Other times I amaze myself. I'll admit the latter happens less often than the first.

My family loves lasagna, but I don't make it often because of all that pre-boiling noodle nonsense - where you get third degree burns while assembling. So the other day I just stuck the noodles in a 9 x 13 pan with some hot tap water and walked away for 20 min. When I returned, viola! soft noodles. I know, you're thinking what about those no-bake noodles, why not use those? They cost more that's why. Just pre-soak your noodles and seriously that's enough to make a girl want to cook up some Amore.

The meat eating vegans ate: Vegetarian Spinach Lasagna - which consisted of layering: noodles, ricotta, spinach and sauce (from a jar people!) couldn't be easier.

I ate my own mini version: I use this recipe instead of the ricotta. Super tasty. And everyone's happy.
Especially my non-scorched fingers.
