Lasagna - Step 3
3. DRAIN meat; return to skillet. Stir in spaghetti sauce. Pour water into empty sauce jar; cover and shake well. Add to skillet; stir until well blended. Adding water to the sauce helps cook traditional noodles during baking, so you don't have to cook them beforehand. This saves you 15 to 20 min. of prep time.

4. SPREAD 1 cup of the meat sauce onto the bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish; top with a layer of 3 uncooked lasagna noodles. Noodles will expand to fit the dish during baking.
