Dishwasher Lasagna

***  FIRST AND FOREMOST ***  This is NOT my recipe and is copied directly from http://www.wikihow.com/Cook-Lasagna-in-Your-Dishwasher.  I'm in the middle of cooking the World's Best Lasagna from Allrecipes and wanted to see how to avoid cooking the lasagna noodles ahead of time because I'm tripling the recipe and I found this.  If anyone tries it, please let me know how it turns out.  Sounds DISS-CUSS-TING to me!!  However, the the World's Best Lasagna truly is the best lasagna I have ever had!

Shock your dinner guest with this fun and unique way to prepare everyone's favorite Italian dish. Do your dishes, cook a meal, and give your guests something to talk about when you make lasagna in your dishwasher.

Ingredients
  • 1/2 jar of favorite pasta sauce
  • 3 fresh lasagna pasta sheets (or 'oven ready' lasagna sheets)
  • 1/2 16.8 oz container of Ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 package of mixed grated cheese
  • 1 cup freshly chopped spinach
  • Garlic
  • Onion flakes
  • Fine herbs

editSteps

  1. 1
    Cut three 24-inch x 12-inch sheets of aluminum foil and lie flat.
  2. 2
    Take first lasagna sheet and place flat it in the center of the aluminum foil.
  3. 3
    Spread a thick layer of pasta sauce over the sheet, covering the entire surface.
  4. 4
    In a bowl, mix the ricotta cheese and spinach and layer half the mixture on top of the tomato sauce.
  5. 5
    Layer desired amount of grated cheese, along with fine herbs, garlic, and onion flakes.
  6. 6
    Top with second lasagna sheet and repeat all layers.
  7. 7
    Cut third lasagna sheet into strips about 3/8-inch wide and layer on top of lasagna in a criss cross fashion. Top with herbs and spices.
  8. 8
    Wrap lasagna tightly in the foil by taking the longest sides of the foil and bringing them to meet above the lasagna.
  9. 9
    Fold the edges of the foil together to make a 'paper bag' effect (like that you would when folding a brown paper lunch bag)above the lasagna. Begin to fold the edges together downward until you are just above the lasagna.
  10. 10
    Flatten the foil out above the lasagna and fold in the remaining sides like a present, first the sides, then the middle.
  11. 11
