Lasagna Dip is the perfect hot dip to bring to a party. Full of all the great things you love in a traditional lasagna but without the pasta (and all the work)!
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time35 mins
Total Time45 mins
Servings: 6 servings
- 1/2 pound ground beef (I used beef with a lower fat content so there would be less grease)
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
- 1 8 ounce container ricotta cheese
- 1/4 cup Romano or Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1 cup marinara sauce
- 1 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- Baguette, sliced
- Olive oil cooking spray
- Fresh parsley, chopped (garnish)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a non-stick saute pan, brown ground beef until cooked using a wooden spoon to break up the beef.
Once cooked, drain the excess grease and return the beef to the pan.
Season the beef with Italian seasoning, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, onion powder, salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Stir to combine and set aside off the heat to cool slightly.
While the beef cools, add ricotta cheese, Romano or Parmesan cheese, dried parsley, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper to a large bowl and stir until well combined.
In a 1 quart baking dish, spread the ricotta mixture in an even layer to cover the bottom of the pan.
Spread the cooled beef evenly over the top of the ricotta layer.
Spread marinara sauce evenly over the beef layer.
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the top of the dip.
Bake for 25 minutes (you can broil for the last minute or two if you want to brown the cheese slightly).
While it bakes, place the sliced baguette onto a sheet pan and spray with olive oil cooking spray. Place them into the oven on the bottom rack for the last 10 minutes of baking.
Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley and serve immediately with sliced baguette.
