One Pot Stovetop Lasanga

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Barilla, but all my opinions, and my One Pot Lasagna Recipe, are my own. #pmedia #JoytotheTable  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO

We love Italian in our house; in fact spaghetti is pretty much consumed at least twice a week. It’s what my kids say is their favorite food, and it’s what this mom loves to cook, because let’s face, it doesn’t get much easier! I recently realized that my kids have never had lasagna, and that kind of shocked me because I LOVE lasagna! Of course, lasagna isn’t the easiest or quickest dish to make, so I thought  why not make a one post lasagna meal, since one pot meals are a favorite in our house!?

  Stovetop One Pot Lasagna - Ready in 30 minutes and perfect for busy weeknights! #pmedia #joytothetable #ad

It only takes about thirty minutes from start to finish, and you have a hot, delicious comfort food on that table, that’s sure to become a family favorite. It’s definitely being added to our weeknight menu!

The first thing to do is head to your local Safeway store and take advantage of the in-store offer of $1 savings on your favorite Barilla Spaghetti Sauce and $1 off of Barilla Oven Ready Lasagna noodles.

I always gave garlic on hand but if you don’t, grab some of that too – get the minced garlic in a jar just ’cause it’s super easy. While you’re at it, you’ll need a pound of hamburger meat, chicken broth and Ricotta and Mozzarella cheeses.

You’ll put it all together, cook it for about 20 minutes, and then you get to taste this:

 Doesn’t that look amazing?? Keep in mind this isn’t a traditional casserole, so it doesn’t cut into nice, neat little squares. But trust me, with all the time you’ve saved you won’t care – it’s still delicious!

A lot of people ask what pan I use. I used my Simply Calphalon Nonstick 5-qt. Sauté Pan for this recipe. It’s a great non-stick pan, it’s held up fabulously for years, and clean up is a snap! I recently purchased a Calphalon Tri-Ply Stainless Steel 12″ Everyday Pan and that one is just as fabulous. Both are perfect for my one pot meals.

One Pot Stovetop Lasanga

Servings 6 -8 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1-2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 package Barilla Oven-Ready Lasagna broken into fourths
  • 1 ½ - 2 jars Barilla Spaghetti Sauce depending on how saucy you like it
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup Ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese

Instructions
 

  • In a 5 quart cooking pot, cook ground beef, garlic and dry seasonings over medium high heat, until meat is cooked through and no longer pink. Drain grease from pan.
  • To the meat, add one third of the sauce, then a layer of noodles and repeat, ending with the final third of sauce on top. (the noodles didn't really want to break into fourths, so take what you can get. If they break into smaller pieces, that's ok). Add the chicken broth and stir slightly. (*if only use 1 ½ jars of sauce, you may need to add more chicken broth. Just watch that it doesn't get too dry).
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cook for 20 minutes, stirring gently a few times to help keep the noodles from sticking together.
  • When noodles are tender, remove the pot from the heat. Gently stir in cheeses and reserve some Mozzarella for sprinkling on top. Cover and let sit for five minutes to allow cheeses to melt.
  • Serve.

  1. I can’t wait to eat this, the cheese is melting now, while waiting for roasting asparagus in the oven, I agree with another commenter — this is perfect for a spur of the moment Lasagna treat – and what a treat it is! no tedious noodle wrestling and layering and all that bother — this is going into my permanent recipe file and we get to enjoy lasagna lots more often! Yay!

  2. Probably a silly question, but are the broken noodles to be cooked first, then added, or just add the uncooked noodles to the mixture?

    1. Similarly disappointed in this recipe. One note and unnuanced. We will eat the leftovers because it’s a want not want not time, but we will not repeat. Should have listened to Moe.

      1. This is a simple one pot meal meant to simplify an otherwise time consuming recipe. It doesn’t bake for an hour and therefore won’t have the same “nuances” that a traditional baked lasagna will have. I’m sorry you didn’t like it, everyone’s tastes are different. My family loves it.

  3. This was awesome. I left a lid on for 10 min, then off for the last 10 to help the extra liquid evaporate. Couldn’t have been a more easy and delicious solution to having a broken oven and wanting lasagna!

  4. I made this last night and it was DELICIOUS!!! I used 2 TBSP of Italian Seasoning and a little less than 1 TBSP of garlic salt (based on other noodle dishes that I make). I was looking for a lasagna recipe that didn’t take hours to prepare and cook. This is perfect for a hearty meal. In fact, my fiancé said he preferred it to the baked lasagna I typically make (which is usually on the weekend when I have the time). This recipe is an immediate add to my weekly rotation of recipes. Thanks for posting this, Kristin, and have a wonderful July 4th weekend!

  5. Hi Kristin, you have a winner! I’ve been making pan lasagna for several years leave my noodles whole as I would for the oven. It takes alittle longer to cook about 45 minutes but much easier just for me and my husband , a spur of the moment lasagna treat. I mix my liquid into the jar sauce, a great one pot meal.

    1. If you wanted you could cook them first and add them at the very end. During the cook time the oven ready noodles are cooked IN the sauce, so that is what I recommend using.

      1. Have you’ve tried regular noodles? just curious cause I am gonna try tonight. Figure I would just use more broth. We shall see.

        1. Sounds like you may have already made this so I apologize for the late reply. Let us know how it worked out!

  6. Thanks for the recipe! This was super easy- I substituted ground turkey – and after the 20 minutes I flipped it into a casserole dish to mix in the cheese and broil for 5 minutes so the top layer of cheese was crispy – mmmmm so good!

  7. Hi! I’ve been looking for this kind of recipe that doesn’t need any oven. Lasagna is my niece fave food. I will definitely try this one. Thanks for sharing.

  8. This looks SO GOOD! Just wanted to let you know I included it in my round-up of one pot recipes. I’d also love if you submitted this recipe in our contest to win a Swiss Diamond cookware set! http://ow.ly/AOCzs

    Thanks again for the great recipe. 🙂

    1. I do I mix cottage cheese & sour cream together jams I also use bow tie pasta already cooked and omit the chicken broth

  9. will be making this in about 20-30 minutes… cant wait to try it… i hate how long it takes for lasagna to get done, even the crockpot ways… looking forward to eating this soon! will let you know what i thought! 🙂

  10. Great idea! We just made lasagna for the first time in forever the other night. It looks a lot easier this way!
