Lazy Mans Lasagne

Linda Mericle


This is truly the lasagne for the lazy man/woman. Which is why it would be a great recipe to start your teenager on!(Ohhhh! Cut! Just kidding teens. We know you are not ALL lazy.) I am so lazy, I do not even have a recipe for this, which is why you wont see many measurements. You could make this from almost all leftovers and bits of this and that. You could use any leftover meats or bits of cheeses you need to get rid of. For the link to the blog site this came from go to:

How to Make Lazy Mans Lasagne


  1. Now remember, you are making 'lazy lasagne' so dont work too hard at this. Use leftovers where possible. Heat up your sauce and mix in the meat, either leftover bits or cook up some. True lazy-ists will cook the meat up in the microwave and then drain it and break it up. (I use stoneware baker and chop with mix n chopper). Then mix with the sauce. Maybe microwave another minute together. But you dont have to, if its too much effort. We need to focus on lazy here.
  2. Cook up your pasta of choice until just done. Get out a baking pan, like a Pyrex glass 9 x 13 or a stoneware or La Creuset baking pan. (Unless you are broiling, then dont use stoneware.) Grate your cheeses. (Or better still, get someone else to grate them for you!)
  3. Lets make it even easier and mix the noodles and the meat sauce together. Ahhh!
    Lets layer them in.
    Pasta/meat/sauce-the 3 cheeses-a drizzle of alfedo sauce-pasta/meat/sauce again and so it goes. Just try to end with mozzarella cheese on top.
  4. Now you can bake this until warm. It wont take long, because it is already pretty much warm.
    Or you can put it under the broiler for a few minutes. (But dont walk away, like I did, and let it get too brown). Or microwave it and then broil it for a nice brown topping. Whatever is the laziest way for you! Serve up, maybe with a bag of ready to go-no effort salad. (I am feeling so lazy now, I wont even go back and spell check this!)
