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!


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

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.

Linking up to the following parties:



  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!

  2. This sounds awesome and easy! Do you want to submit this to Presto Pasta Nights this week? I am hosting this week, details are on my blog. I'd love to include this to the round up on my blog on Friday, thanks!
