Do you ever feel intimidated by lasagna?
The first time I attempted to make a homemade lasagna, I went all in – made a sauce from scratch in one saucepan, cooked my noodles in another saucepan, and browned my meat in a third saucepan.
By the time I was done “prepping” the lasagna to go into the oven, I already had a sink full of dirty dishes!

Do you need to cook your noodles first?
For this lasagna, you do not have to cook your noodles before you bake it – just layer the uncooked noodles in your lasagna and they will soften while the lasagna bakes!
This step alone will save you so much time. There are “oven-ready” lasagna noodles available at the grocery store, but they are not needed for this recipe – just any kind of regular lasagna noodles will do.
