Instructions

  1. Cook the lasagna noodles according to the package instructions. Drain and set aside.

  8. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses on top.
  9. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 25 minutes. Then, remove the foil and bake for an additional 25 minutes until bubbly and golden.
