One Pot Lasagna

One Pot Lasagna

I don’t know one human that dislikes lasagna. Not one. I mean, what’s not to love! Maybe the cooking process. A good hearty lasagna takes time. Ha! Lies. Let me prove it with this Lazy Lasagna! You only need one oven safe pot or skillet. I’m using this beautiful Dutch oven I got for Christmas. Thanks, sissy! I’m only making this, because I couldn’t wait to put this thing on the stove and in the oven. But, if you don’t have a Dutch oven, just use any ovenproof skillet. 

Now, I’m using my meat sauce, because it’s my favorite. However, it takes time to make. But, chile, it’s soooo worth it! If you don’t have the time just buy your favorite spaghetti sauce in jar. But, you should just make my sauce and freeze it for times like these. Just a suggestion. I’m here to help.

Also, ya girl doesn’t like ricotta. Or cottage cheese. But, if you do, add in some dollops of it before sprinkling on the cheese. This recipe is a hit! I actually prefer this version over the traditional way. Try it and I bet you will too!
