Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Size Wise
Since this comfort-food classic serves 12, it's the perfect dish to serve at your next large gathering of family or friends.
Tip 2
Note
The noodles will expand as the lasagna bakes to fill the baking dish.
Tip 3
Variation
Prepare using extra-lean ground beef, and substituting 2 egg whites for the whole egg.
Tip 4
Note
Adding water to the sauce helps cook the traditional noodles during baking so you don't have to cook them beforehand. This saves you 15 to 20 minutes of prep time.
