The Preparation Method:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Set large pot of water to boil.
Follow package directions for cooking the lasagna noodles.
*Word to the wise, use the noodles you have to cook if possible….If you use the no-cook variety still soak in hot water for 10min or till they become a little softer..
First step:Saute onions, mushrooms, green peppers, and garlic in olive oil until soft over medium-high heat, approximately 8 minutes.
Next add meat, brown it then add seasonings and cook together for 10min
Next add sauces, kidney beans and tomatoes turn mix all together and then turn heat down and allow to simmer till ready to layer
**Layer a few spoonfuls of red sauce on the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Spoon some cream ricotta sauce in there too and mix it around to create a nice nonstick surface for the first layer of lasagna noodles.
**Layer #1 of noodles. And they might break apart but that is normal for rice noodle. They do not perform like normal wheat noodles. They break apart all too easily. But hey, no one will know the difference once it’s all baked together in a fantastic casserole of Italian goodness.
**Next a layer of cream sauce. Use approximately 1 cup’s worth here. Spread it around
**Add And another layer of meat sauce….continue prev steps till you get to the top.
**End with a nice thick layer of cream sauce with the remaining meat sauce placed carefully on top.
**Cover with tin foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Take the cover off and bake another 5 minutes
