No time to make a family dinner? No problem. Here's an easy, no-bake lasagna solution that will have your family crowding around the table!

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Yields: 6 Servings


16 ounces Golden Grain® Lasagna

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 pound ground beef

1 jar spaghetti sauce

1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 cup ricotta cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

Your favorite lasagna ingredients, such as 1 can sliced black olives (drained), 1 can sliced mushrooms (drained), pepperoni slices, sliced zucchini, sliced bell peppers, or onions


1Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions. Rinse with cold water and drain well. Cut noodles into squares and toss with vegetable oil to prevent sticking. Place into serving bowl and set aside.

2Meanwhile, cook ground beef thoroughly over medium heat, 10-15 minutes. Drain fat, place into a separate serving bowl; cover and set aside.

3In a medium saucepan, heat spaghetti sauce. Transfer to a separate serving bowl; set aside.

4Stir ricotta and Parmesan cheese together in a separate serving bowl and set aside.

5Place mozzarella cheese and your family’s favorite lasagna ingredients into separate serving bowls.

6Let individuals build their own lasagna stacks by layering pasta with their favorite ingredients.

7Lasagna stacks can be served immediately or warmed for 45-60 seconds in the microwave.

8Store leftover lasagna noodles for 2-3 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator to prevent drying and hardening.

Cook’s Tip: This is a great way to use an abundance of seasonal vegetables or even leftovers from the refrigerator.
