Instructions

  • Follow directions on pasta box to boil 12 lasagna noodles. Drain and let noodles sit in a cool water bath until ready to begin layering.

Marinara sauce layer

  • Add all ingredients to a large saucepan. Heat over medium heat until it starts to simmer. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add salt and paper to taste.

Ricotta layer

  • Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl, mixing until incorporated.

Bread Crumb Topping

  • Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, mixing with a fork or your fingers until incorporated.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Using a 9x13 pan, start your layering. Begin by spreading about 1/2 cup of marinara sauce on bottom of pan. Add a layer of 3 noodles, laid side by side. Then, add 1/2 of remaining marinara sauce. Sprinkle on 1/3 mozzarella cheese, then dot 1/3 of ricotta layer all over. Layer 3 more noodles, and brush all the pesto on top of them. Sprinkle on another 1/3 mozzarella, and repeat dotting 1/3 ricotta. Layer 3 more noodles, the remaining marinara, mozzarella, and ricotta dots. Layer on the last 3 noodles, and top it all off with the bread crumb topping.
  • Cover lasagna with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 30 minutes until the cheese is brown and bubbling and beautiful.
