❤️LAZY LASAGNA IS A FAVORITE
This is one of our most popular recipes because it’s simple and delicious. Only a few ingredients and wonderful on a busy night. Does it take the place of homemade lasagna? Of course not, but it’s still a good recipe.
You may love our homemade lasagna or our baked spaghetti; both are wonderful dishes, but they take a little bit longer to prepare. This dish comes together very quickly and is versatile.
Table of contents
Frozen Cheese Ravioli – This is found in the freezer section and we prefer the 3 cheese blend. You can use whatever you like but this is our favorite. Some people prefer to get the spinach kind but we love the 3 cheeses because it’s the three cheeses that are in most lasagna.
Pasta Sauce – You can use whatever your family prefers! We are always switching it up but recently made this with sauce flavored with basil and garlic and it was great.
Ground Beef – Most of the recipes we find don’t use meat in this dish but this was a must for us. We love making this ore like a meat sauce.
Italian Shredded Cheese – This comes in a bag and is a great addition to this recipe. We love to use the Italian blend, it gives it a good flavor.
⭐You can use ground turkey in place of ground beef or leave the meat out altogether. If you are looking for more protein and less fat, use ground turkey. Italian sausage is wonderful in this dish too. You can also make this without any meat.
⭐Remember this is a versatile recipe, you can add chopped vegetables, different cheeses, or another protein source.
⭐Add whatever spices you enjoy, you can also add garlic to the meat, etc.
That is another thing that is wonderful about this dish; you are only going to use two pans. The skillet to make the meat and the 9X13 to cook in. Another added bonus is the clean-up will be super simple. Two dishes and you are done!
🍽️HOW TO MAKE LAZY LASAGNA
This dish only takes about 10-15 minutes to prepare which is why it’s perfect for a busy night.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 9×13 pan. Brown ground beef in a skillet and add 3/4th of the sauce to the meat and let simmer for about 10 minutes.
Pour the remaining sauce into the bottom of the casserole dish. Next layer frozen ravioli, then a layer of meat sauce and top with 1/2 the cheese. Layer ravioli again, meat sauce and cheese.
Sprinkle basil and oregano on the top layer of cheese, cover with foil, and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 15 more minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
🥄WHAT WORKS FOR US
The Italian-style shredded cheese contains Mozzarella, Provolone, Parmesan, Romano, Fontina, and Asiago cheese. You can use whatever cheese you like. I also used the Classico tomato and basil pasta sauce.
You can also use our meat sauce in this recipe, which is made differently but it is delicious. It’s simple to make and we love it with ground turkey or ground beef.
If you are a fan of this recipe, you will definitely want to try our Lazy Cheeseburger Pasta. It’s just as simple and so good. It’s only a few ingredients and it’s delicious with ranch dressing on top.
