Red Gold Lasagna Party Kit

Back in January, Red Gold sent me a Lasagna Party Kit. I meant to post this last month, but life kind of got in the way. With having to take my mom to cancer appointments, work, and a family member passing away----I just didn't get a chance.

 I loved LOVED this! The party kit came with the basic essentials needed to make lasagna--spatula included!. All we needed to do was to get the ricotta. We keep parmesan and mozzarella on hand at home. Gotta love being married to an Italian:)

We used i guess i should be honest and say the hubs used the following recipe that Red Gold had emailed me:
Recipe: Red Gold “All-in-One" Lasagna
Preparation Time:20 minutes
Cook Time:1 hour
1/2 cup water
1 (28 ounce) can Red Gold Crushed Tomatoes
2 (14.5 ounce) cans Red Gold Diced Tomatoes with Basil, Garlic & Oregano
1 (16 ounce) box lasagna noodles, traditional, uncooked
1 (15 ounce) carton low fat ricotta cheese
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Preheat oven to 350ยบ F. In large mixing bowl combine water, RED GOLD® CRUSHED TOMATOES and RED GOLD® DICED TOMATOES with BASIL, GARLIC & OREGANO.
  • Cover the bottom of a 9x13x2 inch baking pan with 1½ cups of sauce mixture.  Arrange 1/3 of noodles on top of sauce, slightly overlapped.  Top with ½ of ricotta cheese, ½ of mozzarella cheese and 1 cup of sauce.  Repeat layers and top with last 1/3 of noodles and the remaining sauce.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Cover tightly with foil and bake for 1 to 1½ hours; until noodles are cooked. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
  • The recipe makes 12 servings, but you could divide the recipe into two 9x9 inch baking dishes and freeze one for a wintry night supper.
*Sadly, I forgot to take a picture of our meal that night with all the craziness that has ensued over the past couple of months. It was yummy for sure!!!!

This was fantastic! I looked the fact that you are able to use uncooked noodles which makes the process go SO much faster!  And it's something this novice can do herself next time:)
I had never used Red Gold before, but it's great and will now be a regular staple in our pantry! Thank you SO much Red Gold!
