  • In a separate bowl, mix together the ricotta or cottage cheese, slightly beaten egg, Italian seasoning and some salt and pepper to taste. Set aside
  • Once the sauce is done add heavy whipping cream to sauce to make it creamy, pour it into the bowl with the prepared pasta and mix it together. Then stir in 1 cup of mozzarella cheese and 1 cup of parmesan cheese.
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, 2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
  • Lightly spray a 13×18-inch (half sheet) sheet pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Pour all the lasagna mixture onto the baking sheet and spread it out evenly.
  • Dollop the ricotta/cottage cheese mixture all over the top of the lasagna.
  • Then top with the remaining grated mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese.

Notes

You can also layer like I did with longer noodles in the tutorial video. I personally love it this way gives it a nice crunch but you can premix or layer depends on what you like.
You can also bake this on a higher temp… which I prefer again, because it give it that extra crunch.

  1. This looks really good and fast to make! Could you clarify the total amount of Parmesan cheese and Mozzarella cheese for the recipe? The cheese listed in step 7 is throwing me off 🙂
