Once when expecting a visit from a college friend, I wanted to serve something a little different. So I came up with this lasagna. It's perfect for company because it can be assembled in advance.

“Most lasagnas have too much salt and fat for me, so I came up with this version,” notes Dorothea Rickner of Rochester, New York. “It’s fairly easy to prepare and goes great with a salad and toasted garlic bread.”
It's almost hard to believe that this traditional, mouthwatering dish comes from the microwave. While the lasagna cooks, use your oven to bake some rolls or bread to complete the meal.—Betty Ruenholl, Syracuse, Nebraska
This is a variation on a lasagna dish a coworker made for a company potluck. When I was expecting our third son, I often prepared meals and froze them. It was so nice to have a substantial entree like this one to bake. —Colleen Wolfisberg, Everson, Washington
"We love this south-of-the-border lasagna," Trisha Kruse writes from Eagle, Idaho. "The cheesy dish comes together fast with a carton of vegetarian chili, and makes a great entree served with a green salad and baked tortilla chips."
Using no-cook noodles gives you a jump start on assembling this hearty main dish that Carolyn Schmeling of Brookfield, Wisconsin recommends. It cuts nicely after standing a few minutes, revealing flavorful layers.
