Expert Tips

Something as simple as chopped fresh parsley will dress up this lasagna. Sprinkle on the parsley just before serving.

Generally, pasta does not hold its shape well during slow cooking. However, no-boil lasagna noodles are an exception and pair perfectly with this lasagna’s creamy sauce!
