Revamp your lasagna game with a microwave rethink! Say goodbye to long bake times and hello to speed ‘n ease. This recipe delivers the gooey comfort of a cheeseburger, sandwiched between layers of noodles. Pro tip: layer in 3 cups of baby spinach between the sauce and noodle layers—leafy greens are a great source of vitamin C and potassium!
Serve with 2 cups leafy greens and a squeeze of lemon juice.
1 can (28 oz/796 ml) unsalted crushed tomatoes
1 lb (450 g) lean ground beef
1 1⁄2 cups grated cheddar cheese, divided
1⁄3 cup water
8 oven-ready lasagna noodles
- Place tomatoes, beef, 3⁄4 cup cheese, seasoning, and water in a large bowl; mix to combine. Spoon 1⁄2 cup into bottom of Square or Multipurpose Steamer.
- Break noodles in half crosswise. Lay four pieces in steamer; top with 1 cup beefy sauce. Repeat three more times, until noodles and sauce are all used (the top layer should be sauce).
- Cover and microwave on high 18–20 min. Carefully remove steamer, uncover, and sprinkle with remaining 3⁄4 cup cheese. Cover and let rest 3–5 min.
- Use a silicone knife or spatula to cut and serve. Avoid using metal knives in the Steamer.
