One Pot Lasagna is so quick to prepare. Lasagna in an hour!
Ever since having a baby earlier this year I’ve been all for one-pot pasta meals. I mean who has time to spend hours making delicious tasting lasagna when you have a cute baby to cuddle?
After experimenting in the kitchen and trying a few different methods I’m in love with this one pot lasagna. I don’t think I’ll ever make lasagna the traditional way ever again. I make this recipe at least 1-2 times a month and my husband loves that he gets lasagna often now.
Gone are the days of making sauce, pre-boiling noodles, layering the lasagna and then baking it. That takes hours. Instead you can make this one pot lasagna in just about 30 minutes.
And can I tell you how magical this tastes the next day?! Holy cow. The sauce is hearty and full of flavor and really sinks into the noodles the next day. However, if you have a family of four with a hearty appetite you probably won’t have any leftovers.
That’s the catch-22 with this recipe and why you will make this every few weeks in your home. It’s a small batch of lasagna. Just enough for dinner for the family or if you’re a family of 2 you will have a delicious dinner and lunch out of this one-pot wonder. I would even make this lasagna if I was entertaining.
Of course you can always double the recipe if you have more people you need to feed. Just remember to use a larger skillet. Think like a 5 to 6 quart to give you plenty of room to cook with. And if doubling, I would just use the entire box of noodles.
Oh and one last tip, if you are trying to get more veggies in your diet or even your kids' diet, feel free to chop two cups of fresh spinach and add it in with the meat just before adding in the noodles.
I’ve started doing this and you can’t taste the difference. The kids or even adults will just think its fresh herbs and not realize that they are eating spinach!
Are you tired of the dinner routine?
