Lasagna Tips

My top 3 lasagna tips

I was reminded lately of the time, maybe 6 or 7 years into marriage, when I asked my husband what his favorite food was.  I, of course, thought that I knew…any Mexican food…right???!?  Wrong.  He said lasagna.  I though to myself, I hadn’t ever made lasagna, so he must be wrong 😉  I better get to making some lasagna around my house.  Lasagna seemed so tricky.  Sooooo many layers!  Frozen lasagna will have to do.  Wrong again! I soon realized that lasagna doesn’t have to be hard to make.  It is actually pretty easy with the right ingredients and a few tips.


  1. BROWN IT!!!  Bake your lasagna with foil covering it, but make sure to take the foil off for the last 15-20 minutes.  It will not only look prettier, but it will make your cheese get all crispy/melty and good.  Who doesn’t like crispy/melty cheese!?!
  2. REST!!!  Not you, the lasagna.  This is the hardest part for me.  Pull it out of the oven and let it rest for 20-30 minutes before you start digging in.  It will help the cheese and sauce to run all over your plate.  You can do it!  Willpower people!
  3. SAUCE IT UP!!!  I have found that using some key store-bought ingredients can make your homemade lasagna so much quicker and easier.  I love Bertolli pasta sauce, because there are so many options.  I love the tuscan-inspired Bertolli Tomato & Basil sauce, but you can totally transform your lasagna with a different sauce.  I have used Bertolli Alfredo Sauce and made Chicken Alfredo Lasagna.  I find these varieties at my local Smith’s (Kroger) or you can check them out here  Seriously, try switching the sauce in your favorite lasagna recipe.  It will wow your friends and family.  They will think you are the real deal and super fancy! Because you are 🙂
