How to Make No-Noodle Lasagna

Lasagna's all about the layers, but instead of noodles that break or are hard to handle, we used flatbreads, tortillas, egg roll wrappers and even crackers that serve as perfect subs for the traditional. And we played around with the flavors, too, riffing on Tex-Mex, Greek, pizza and more. Now that's using your noodle -- even when you aren't.

Matzo-Pizza Lasagna


Noodle Trick: Matzo Thin, crisp matzo makes an ideal layer in this pizza-lasagna mash-up. It softens when baked but holds all the wonderful toppings together. There's no dough to stretch or noodles to boil -- it's just two favorite meals combined to make one killer casserole.

Noodle Trick: Lavash bread Middle Eastern flatbread is just thin and soft enough to add body and heartiness. We got so into it that we tried it with the classic Greek moussaka ingredients: eggplant, tomatoes and lamb.
