Easy One Pot Lasagna
The easiest 30-min lasagna you will ever make in a single pot – no boiling, no layering, nothing – the pasta gets cooked right in the pan!
I’ve made lasagna about 4 times in my entire life, and the last time was an absolute disaster. My pot wasn’t big enough for the lasagna noodles so part of them were uncooked, and it was simply an epic mess. Thankfully, this one pot lasagna gives you all the flavors of that comforting lasagna with just a quarter of the work.
Although I actually prefer this lasagna version over the traditional kind, especially because of those mounds of ricotta topped throughout the pan that just melts right in. Not to mention the easy serving too. But I do recommend eating out of the skillet because then you really have only one pan to clean at the end of dinner.
So when you’re in a pinch to whip up dinner and need that comforting homemade lasagna, this 30-min one pot meal is sure to save the night!
