One-Pan Lasagna: A Quick and Easy Comfort Food Recipe

Hey there, foodies! If you're looking for a quick and easy way to make a hearty lasagna without the hassle of pre-baking pasta and layering, then you're in the right place. Today, we're going to show you how to make a one-pan lasagna that's as delicious as it is convenient.

Before we get started, here's what you'll need:

  • 1 tablespoon of canola oil
  • 1 lb of ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cups of marinara sauce (divided)
  • 6 lasagna sheets
  • 1 cup of ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup of mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh basil, chopped

Now, let's get cooking!

1. Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

2. Add the ground beef, salt, and pepper, and cook until the beef is browned and the moisture has evaporated.

3. Stir in the garlic and onion, cooking until the onions are translucent.

4. Add one cup of the marinara sauce and reduce the mixture to a paste.

5. With a large spoon or spatula, push some of the beef mixture to the side of the pan, creating space to slide the lasagna sheets underneath. Break about two sheets to fit into the gaps.

6. Top with the remaining lasagna sheets, spread the remaining marinara sauce over them, and sprinkle with the ricotta cheese.

7. Layer the mozzarella cheese on top and garnish with fresh basil.

8. Bake for  25 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown.
