Serves: 2Hands-on: 7 minutesTotal: 25 minutesDifficulty: Easy

Serves: 2


  • ½ cup diced tomatoes
  • ⅓ cup ricotta cheese
  • ½ cup grated mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
  • ⅛ tsp. dried oregano
  • ⅛ tsp. dried basil
  • 6 “oven-ready” lasagna noodles


  • Place the crushed tomatoes in a bowl. Stir in the ricotta, then 1/3 cup mozzarella, and then the Parmesan. Make sure each cheese is thoroughly mixed in before adding the next. Stir in the oregano and basil.
  • Lay out 2 lasagna noodles in a large bowl or small (½-quart) microwave-safe casserole dish. Break the noodles in half or as needed to fit the shape of the dish. Spoon approximately ⅓ of the tomato sauce and cheese mixture evenly over the top. Repeat the layering 2 more times. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese over the top.
  • Cover the dish with wax paper. Microwave on high heat for 3 minutes. Turn the bowl, and microwave on high heat for another 5 minutes, until the cheese is cooked. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
