Lasagne is a wide, flat shaped pasta and possibly one of the oldest types of Pasta that originated in Naples. Oh boy, do we love it’s saucy and cheesy goodness.

Below is one of the most simple recipes of lasagne that we know and it’s super delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground Chicken or Paneer ( if you are a vegetarian )
  • 1 onion, diced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 package whole milk ricotta
  • 3 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella, divided
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

 

Method

  2. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook lasagna noodles according to package instructions.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add ground beef and onion and cook until beef has browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Drain excess fat. Stir in tomatoes and Italian seasoning until well combined.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, 1/2 cup mozzarella and egg; set aside.
