Ivan pulls two packets from his mountainous stack of different-flavored ramen. He doesn’t use the seasoning, so whatever ramen flavors you have on hand will work.
Step 1: Build the ramen lasagna base
Using a small glass baking dish, he opens the ramen and places half of the dry noodles at the bottom of the dish. He saves the other half for later. On top of the ramen noodles, he pours a generous amount of pasta sauce. Next, he grates fresh cheddar cheese on top of the pasta sauce and covers it all with another half of dry ramen noodles.
Here’s how to grate cheese so it doesn’t stick to your grater.
Step 2: Layer with more cheese and noodles
He repeats the process with another generous pool of pasta sauce and even more freshly grated cheese on top. I’m starting to like where this is going! But we’re not done yet. Taking another packet of ramen, he breaks the noodles in half one more time and places half on top of the cheese. As you may have guessed, more pasta sauce and cheddar cheese follow up. Then he takes the last half of the ramen noodles and crushes it up in his palm so the crumbles fall like pieces of crunchy breading.
Step 3: Bake the ramen lasagna
He follows up with a bit more cheddar cheese and pops the whole thing in the oven at 350°F for 25-30 minutes. And when I say it comes out looking like a dream…I mean it. Bon appetit!
