Lasagna is at the top of the comfort food pyramid. Not a lot of people could argue about it, but if you've ever tried to make it from scratch, you know what you are setting yourself up to. Multiple pots and pans, hours making marinara and bechamel sauce, then all the layering! And if you make lasagna sheets yourself - you can forget about leaving the kitchen for the whole day.
Sure, that tastes good, but what if you could achieve a similar or even better-tasting lasagna, and it would only take you 30 min and one pot? Sounds too good to be true? Try this easy skillet lasagna recipe, and you'll never look back.
How to make one pot lasagna
Makes 6 servings
1 pound Italian sausage (or ground beef)
2 (14 oz) can tomato sauce
1 (14 oz) can diced tomato
½ onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
½ tsp dried basil
A pinch of salt and black pepper
¾ pound lasagna noodles, broken
1-2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
Fresh parsley, chopped
Heat the skillet over medium heat. Add the ground sausage or ground beef (whatever you prefer), cook, while stirring continuously. When it's close to being done, add diced onion and cook for a few more minutes.
When the onion is translucent, and the meat is cooked, add minced garlic. Mix everything and cook for another minute.
Add the tomato sauce and diced tomato. You can add some extra garlic and basil here. Make sure the sauce covers the meat and onion mixture. Add seasoning and mix it well. Let it cook for a couple of minutes over medium heat for the sauce to soak up all the flavors.
Break lasagna noodles and add them to the skillet. Make sure the sauce covers them. Let it simmer over medium heat for 20-25 min, stirring occasionally. The sauce can bubble, but don't let it come to boil.
Once the lasagna sheets have softened, stir in Mozarella cheese until it melts, and you are done!
Serve with a scoop of ricotta cheese, sprinkle some extra Mozzarella, and fresh parsley. Enjoy your super easy stovetop lasagna.
