Lasagna Recipe

Happy Saturday peeps! I wanted to share a recipe I found on line. It was easy to make and my kids loved it!


LADLE-IT-ON LASAGNA


1 Tbs olive oil


1 small onion, chopped


1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes in thick puree


2 tsp minced garlic


1 tsp dried basil


1 tsp dried oregano


2 Tbs grated parmesan cheese


12 oz mafalde pasta (mini lasagna) - cooked and drained
**(I couldn't find mafalde pasta so I used bow ties)


1 1/4 cups ricotta cheese


1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


Directions:
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, for 3 to 4 minutes, until softened.


Add the tomatoes, garlic, basil and oregano. Bring to a simmer and cook uncovered for 7 to 8 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and stir in the parmesan cheese.


To assemble, spoon the pasta into serving bowls. Top each serving with about 3/4 cup tomato sauce, 1/4 cup ricotta cheese and 1 1/2 tablespoons mozzarella cheese. Serve immediately.


I am submitting this recipe to Presto Pasta Nights hosted this week by Debbi Does Dinner Healthy.

  1. Have you tried making Skillet Lasagna? Where you use bowtie noodles, sauce, and mozerella/parm. cheese and cook it in the skillet? It's pretty awesome!
