Inside-Out Lasagna

January/February 2010

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (307 votes)

Here we take basic lasagna ingredients—ricotta cheese, pasta and tomatoes—and skip the layering and long baking time to make a super-quick and satisfying meal for the whole family. To cut down on prep time, look for presliced mushrooms. For meat lovers, brown some crumbled turkey sausage along with the onions and garlic. Serve with: Steamed broccoli and whole-grain baguette.

This was very bland. I would add a little more salt and pepper. Mine ended up watery too because of the mushrooms and using baby spinach. To solve the issue though, I added the ricotta to the pan after everything cooked so it can be cheesy and appear to have alfredo sauce in it (tricking the kiddies). I did get full though, I couldn't even finish the recomended serving size.

This is an easy recipe to tweak though.

I loved this so much I ate the left overs all week. I did change a few things. I used Andean Dream pasta because it is made with quinoa and is a little healthier and tastes great so I use it whenever I can. I substituted half of the mushrooms for zucchini and chopped the mushrooms up very small because my boyfriend doesn't like mushrooms and for some reason he thinks they are more palatable that way. This turned out great I would make this again for sure!

Even though it was bland, everyone loved this. I love pasta and will try anything. I would make this again, but I would definitely spice it up next time.

I have made this twice. It was easy to make, but very bland the first time. The second time, I added italian seasoning, carrots, zuccini, and cooked ground turkey to add flavor. Add the seasoning when you are browning the garlic and onions. Add the zuccini and carrots when the onions & garlic are about half way done. As a lower fat alternative, I used grated parmasean cheese instead of ricotta. It was good that way.

If only I had read the SECOND page of comments before making....I would've known to add tomato paste, extra seasoning, and marinara sauce. Oh well. At least it was 3x faster than "real" lasagna my son was craving.
