Homemade lasagna is a labor of love, but our “lazy” version doesn’t take all day! A couple of smart shortcuts, including using broken noodles and Bell & Evans Breaded Chicken Patties, help this cheesy pasta bake come together in a flash.

Ingredients

  • 16 Bell & Evans Chicken Patties
  • 12 oz Lasagna noodles, broken into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups Fresh ricotta
  • 2 cups Shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup Grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 (24 oz) jar Tomato sauce
  • 2 TB Fresh basil, chopped

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Fill a large pot with water and bring to boil over high heat. Cook the lasagna noodles according to manufacturer's directions; drain.
  2. Place patties in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until patties are fully cooked through, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F, about 25-30 minutes.
  3. Mix ricotta, 1 cup mozzarella and Parmesan together until combined. Fold in cooked lasagna noodles until coated.
  4. Cover bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish with 1 cup tomato sauce. Top with 8 patties. Layer with half the noodle mixture and 1 cup tomato sauce. Top with remaining noodle mixture, tomato sauce and mozzarella. Top evenly with remaining patties.
  5. Bake until sauce is bubbling and cheese is melted, about 15-20 minutes. Garnish with basil. Let cool for 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
  6. Tip: Feel free to substitute Breaded Chicken Patties for Italian-Style Patties!
