My 6-year-old daughter has never wavered from her plan to be a baker when she grows up, so she spends a lot of time in the kitchen with me. She was so excited about the recipe from McCormick for their delicious Lasagna Formaggio, because it was a simple recipe she could make with just a little help from me. In fact, here she is to show you how to make it yourself! Scroll down for the full recipe and directions, plus a great giveaway from McCormick!
Lasagna Formaggio Recipe
- 1 tsp McCormick Garlic Powder
- 1 tsp McCormick Perfect Pinch Italian Seasoning
- 1 tsp McCormick Parsley Flakes
- 1 tsp McCormick Ground Black Pepper
- 3 3/4 Cups Ricotta Cheese (30 oz.)
- 2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (8 oz.)
- 2 Eggs
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 3 1/4 Cup Marinara or Pasta Sauce (26 oz.)
- 1/2 Cup Water
- 9 Uncooked Lasagna Noodles
- 1/4 Cup Graded Parmesan Cheese
To create you McCormick Lasagna Formaggio, first preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Next, in a separate bowl pour all of your Ricotta cheese, about 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella, both eggs, and all of your seasonings (garlic powder, Italian Seasoning, parsley, salt, and pepper). Your a spoon to mix until well blended. Because the mixture is soft, you won’t need to use a mixer – a simple spoon will work great.
In a separate bowl, pour out all of your pasta or marinara sauce. Add the water to your, now empty, pasta jar and replace the lid. Shake slightly to release any extra sauce, then pour into the bowl. Mix until well blended to slightly water down your sauce.
Grab a 13×9-inch baking dish and pour about 1 cup of sauce into the bottom. Spread evenly to cover the bottom of the dish and add 3 lasanga noodles on top.
The best part, in my opinion, is the Ricotta cheese mixture. You’ll want to spread about 1/2 of your cheese mixture on top of the noodles. Next add another cup of sauce, 3 more noddles, and then the remaining cheese mixture. Top with the remaining noodles and sauce, then cover with the remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
Cover your baking dish with foil and, once your oven is preheated, bake for approximately 45 minutes. Finally, remove your foil from the baking dish and cook an additional 15 minutes, so the noodles will become more tender.
Let cool for about 15 minutes before cutting. This will help your lasagna stay together a bit better. Serve and add additional sauce or cheese to top, if you’d like.
