This is a pretty simple one-pot lasagna. I don't dirty any other dishes! I used a Dutch oven, but it will work with any pan that can transfer from stovetop to oven. To make it a little spicier I add crushed red pepper flakes!!

What a quick and easy lasagna! Since you're only dirtying one pot, it's great to throw together on a busy night. Cumin was an unusual spice, but it blends lovely with the other spices. The cream cheese makes the sauce super creamy. It's so flavorful, I bet no one will even be able to tell this lasagna is made with ground turkey. Your whole crew is going to love this!

Note: You may need to use a little elbow grease to clean the pot afterwards. But this is so yummy, it's worth a few extra minutes of soaking the pot. The Test Kitchen

How to Make One-Pot Lasagna

Step-by-Step

  1. In a Dutch oven, or other pot able to use on stovetop and oven, cook the ground turkey with minced onion, garlic and basil.
  2. Once the turkey is cooked, add the remaining spices and the marinara sauce and simmer on low for 30 minutes.
  3. Add in the cream cheese and let it melt down until the mixture is creamy.
  4. Then introduce the mozzarella and let it let it thicken. Once the two soft cheeses have combined, use your spoon/spatula to push aside the turkey mixture and lay one of your noodles down.
  5. Then push the turkey back over top of the noodle and lay the next noodle down and cover that up, forming the bottom layer of your lasagna.
  6. Sprinkle some mozzarella down and then place remaining noodles on top of your turkey and cheese mix. Sprinkle with additional cheese to help it hold together.
  7. Place in the oven on 350* for 30 minutes with the cover and then an additional 10 minutes with out the cover to crisp the cheese. *I also threw a light dusting of garlic powder, pepper, and salt on top to melt in with the cheese.
  8. Slice off a piece, grab some garlic bread and enjoy!
