This recipe is the perfect solution when you crave layered, gooey, oven-baked lasagna goodness but don’t want to turn the oven on. Use flat, no-boil lasagna noodles for best results; noodles with ruffled edges are difficult to fit in the pan. If you’d like to make this lasagna meatless, substitute 8 ounces chopped vegetarian Italian sausage for the pork.
