I love all types of pasta dishes but my favorites are carbonara and lasagne or lasagna. I don’t know why I love lasagna, but since I was a kid I enjoyed eating it. The first time I made lasagna, I think I was about 12 or 13 years old. My first lasagna is a big hit, probably because this pasta dish is so easy to make. It’s been years since I last cooked baked lasagna so when my kids insisted we make one at home, I said yes.
I said yes, because i have all the ingredients i needed to make lasagna. Most of the ingredients to make a no bake lasagna. I don’t have an oven, my oven died of old age. LOL! So, I stop making lasagna. Fortunately, I discovered that I don’t need an oven to cook lasagna. Yup! You can make lasagna even without an oven and using whatever ingredients you have in the fridge and pantry. And I will teach you how to make lasagna without an oven.
My no bake lasagna recipe is different from the typical lasagna recipes online. You see, I didn’t use typical ingredients to make my lasagna. I don’t have ricotta cheese and mozzarella but just regular cheese (Kraft Eden) and parmesan cheese. In other words, I just used whatever I have on the fridge and pantry. For the sauce, I used Hunt’s diced tomato sauce and Nestle All Purpose Cream. Nevertheless, the taste is the same and most importantly, my kids love the lasagna.
