How to Make Lazy Lasagna


  • 1Have noodles cooked, rinsed and drained well.

    Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    Prepare a baking dish with non stick cooking spray. ( I used a 9 x 13 baking dish ).
  • 2In a medium skillet, season and brown the sausage or ground beef with salt,pepper and garlic powder; drain.

    Set aside about 1/2 cup browned sausage. Place the rest back in the skillet.
  • 3Slice the pepperoni into 1/4 pieces. add about half to the sausage or burger. Add the sauce. Bring to a simmer, just long enough to get the flavor of the sausage and pepperoni flowing.

    Spread an even amount of sauce into the bottom of prepared baking dish.
  • 4In a medium bowl, mix ricotta, oregano, basil, 1/4 cup parmesan , 1/2 cup mozarella, egg, chives, salt and pepper, to taste.
  • 5Take a lasagna noodle, spread about 2 heaping tablespoons of ricotta mixture over each noodle to within 1/2 in. of edges.

    Top with a sprinkling of sausage, pepperoni. Spread about 1 tablespoon of sauce on top.
  • 6Carefully roll the noodle and place seam side down in prepared baking dish.
  • 7Sprinkle 1/2 cup mozzarella and 1/4 cup parmesan over the noodles.

    Now, spread remaining sauce evenly over the noodles, making sure the noodles are covered, so not to dry out.
  • 8Sprinkle remaining cheeses evenly over the sauce. Sprinkle with parsley if so desire.

    Place in preheated oven and bake 35 - 40 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is browning.

    I leave mine stand 5 minutes before serving.
  • 9Use whatever other fillings you desire.
