Description

Any Italian grandmother would call it impossible to conjure up a legit lasagna in under fifteen minutes. We’re not in the business of defying anybodys Nonna, but we’re about to prove them all wrong. By breaking up the lasagna noodles, we can get them cooked off quickly. We pull together a scratch tomato sauce spiked with garlic, chili flakes, and fresh basil. The epic finish involves over a pound of cheese that, with a little help from the broiler, gets melty and ever so slightly browned. Sorry Nonna, we’ve got this one in the bag. Buon appetito!

    Directions

    1. Turn on your broiler. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for your lasagna noodles. Grab a large oven-proof pan and place over medium heat. Break apart the lasagna noodles and add them to the pot of boiling, salted water. Cook for about 4 minutes.
    2. Add the tomatoes to the pan of garlic and season with a pinch of salt. Reduce the sauce for just a couple minutes. Add your basil (whole leaves) to the tomato sauce. Remove your broken lasagna noodles from the pot with some tongs and place them directly into your tomato sauce. Remove the sauce from the heat.
    3. Grab your mascarpone and mozzarella cheeses. If you’ve had a tough day, take a moment and squeeze the mozzarella ball for some stress relief. Tear the cheeses into big chunks and distribute over the top of the tomato sauce and noodles. Then grate your parm over the entire pan. Drizzle with a bit of olive oil and grind some black pepper over the top. Place the pan under the broiler for about a minute. Once the cheese is melted and the lasagna is a bit browned on top, take it out.
    4. Grab a plate and a big spoon. Load a heaping helping of lasagna onto your plate. Garnish with a big grate of parm and enjoy!

    This was fast, easy and delicious. I did add a mix of ground turkey sausage/ground turkey. Had my husband cook that prior to arriving home as well as boil the water. I had a hard time finding whole basil but found chopped basil. I agree with another that the mozzarella chucks were very meaty. I may defer to shredded mozzarella next time. but other than that was delicious. I also had to transfer to casserole dish as my pan wasnt oven safe. But just place in oven little prior to placing into dish so it would already be hot.

    Really simple, but tasty! I actually made the sauce in my Ninja Duo on sauté so I could finish the dish on its broil setting. My oven’s broil is finicky. Family really enjoyed. Might add ground sausage next time.

    This recipe saved me when I got a call at work from my hubby saying we had a friend coming for dinner who was arriving 30 minutes after I got home. I love the simplicity, and it really was prepared in 15 minutes (and my daughter loved it). Plus I enjoyed the video :).

    The noodles needed to cook a little longer or maybe I should have used oven ready noodles. It was very good though.

    Turned out great!! I did not have the mascarpone cheese, but I added some whipped heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, and some cheddar cheese (all I had in the fridge, wish I would have had mozzarella), and some sausage. The taste of this was absolutely amazing. I will definitely do again next time with mozzerella cheese.

    This has been added to the family fav list. I have cut back the cheese by 50%, but still extremely tasty.

    This tasted great and took little to no time. Next time ill add ground beef to see what thats like.

    I really enjoyed this. It's pretty simple to make and tastes delicious. The bits of torn mozzarella are really "meaty". I found the sauce a bit too creamy, so the next time I used two 400g tins of tomatoes and halved the amount of mascarpone and I found it much nicer. I wish they would give a weight for the lasagne as boxes come in different sizes. I used 300g, but probably only put 250g into the dish as some sheets stuck together.

    It’s good and easy but I didn’t know how much half a box of lasagna was, my brand could’ve been different from his as I also live outside the U.S. I added mushrooms to the sauce. For personal preference next time I would use just one ball of mozerella. I love cheese but it’s A LOT!

    Easy! A d delicious!

    Fantastic! The sauce itself is something I will use over and over again. I had leftovers for days and each reheat made me incredibly happy. I did substitute fettuccine noodles since I didn't have lasagna, but it was still delicious!

    This was okay. Pretty quick & easy, but we weren’t impressed with the dish - it was just alright. None of my kids liked it at all.
