Ronzoni Lasagna Recipe
Cooking lasagna can be quite a hassle if you are starting from scratch. It’s a good thing you can easily buy some no-boil lasagna packages like Ronzoni’s from your local supermarket. The Ronzoni lasagna recipe only takes about an hour to prepare and cook. That’s why it’s a great choice for family gatherings or large parties.
Remember, the trick to perfectly cooking this Ronzoni lasagna recipe is by following the simple instructions I have mentioned above. Use the right ingredients, assemble your lasagna layers in the right order (meat sauce first, lasagna noodle second, and cheese sauce last).
Other things you should not forget is draining the fat from the ground beef after you brown it and removing the foil from the baking dish and baking it for another 10 minutes to add a fine color to your dish.
- Ronzoni® Lasagna
- Ground beef
- Pasta sauce
- 2 cups ricotta cheese
- Mozzarella cheese
- Parmesan cheese
- Black pepper
Step 1: Prepare Lasagna Noodles
The first thing you will need to do is prepare those lasagna noodles. To do so, simply preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and refer to the Ronzoni packaging directions for the proper preparation of their pasta noodles.
Step 2: Cook Meat
After preparing your pasta noodles, what you have to do next is cook the one pound of ground beef. To do so, simply use a 2-quart pan, set your stove to medium-high heat, and brown your meat.
After browning your ground beef, make sure you drain all the fat. You don’t want any of that grease to get in your lasagna.
Step 3: Create Pasta Sauce
Once your ground beef has been thoroughly browned and drained, what you should do next is add in the pasta sauce to your browned beef. Give it a good mix and continue to simmer the pasta sauce with 1 and ½ cup of water for about 10 minutes.
Step 4: Create Cheese Sauce
The next thing you should do is create you cheese sauce. To do so, start by getting a medium sized bowl. Place your eggs, all of your ricotta cheese, half of your mozzarella cheese, all of your Parmesan cheese, parsley, salt, and pepper in the bowl and give it a thorough mix.
Try to use a whisk to mix in all your cheeses effectively. Try to continue whisking all the cheeses together until there are little to no lumps of cheese left in the mix.
Step 5: Place Ingredients In The Baking Dish
Once you have prepared the lasagna noodles, ground beef, pasta sauce, and cheese sauce, it is now time to assemble your lasagna in your baking dish.
I suggest using a 11x7 inch baking dish for this recipe for quick and even cooking. Once you have your baking dish, start assembling your lasagna by adding a cup of the pasta meat sauce to your baking dish. Make sure that the entire bottom of your baking dish is covered with the meat sauce.
Continue assembling your lasagna by placing 3 lasagna noodles lengthwise and side by side on top of your meat sauce. Once the lasagna noodles are in place, you can now add a spread of your cheese sauce.
Simply continue this process of adding in the meat sauce, lasagna noodles, and cheese sauce in this order until there are no more lasagna noodles left.
Lastly, cover your lasagna with the remaining cheese and meat sauce and then spread some grated mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, and a couple bits of parsley on top of your lasagna before you place it in the oven.
