Brainy Lasagna... its all how you layer it!
What's hot from the oven, bubbling and oozing with sauce and cheesy goodness? Ah, its lasagna!
Lasagna is about layering. Take a long deep glass baking dish, drizzle with a little olive oil and start layering: noodles, sauce, cheese (grated mozzarella or buffalo style), sauce, noodles, cheese and anything that you might want to squeeze in-between: Ricotta cheese, fresh spinach leaves, precooked - crumbled pork sausage, roasted eggplant slices, and or sliced tomatoes. Bake in a hot oven for about 400 until the top is crispy brown.
*Tip~ Always precook the lasagna pasta until al dente. Do this even when using the brands that tell you its not necessary. Also, my personal preference regarding lasagna pasta is the ridged style as they seem to hold the sauce in the pasta channels. Once the noodles are ready, rinse with cold water, drain. This way you can handle the noodles when layering.
