Microwave Lasagna Recipe
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
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 jar (26 ounces) spaghetti sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil

This came out beautifully. Tasty and better texture than most traditional oven lasagna recipes.
