Lasagna in a pan

My husband is a big fan of Italian food. His favorite thing is Lasagna. He gets it when we go out, he gets the frozen kind for at home and if a friend mentions they are making it, he tries very hard to get himself an invite to dinner.

I am not as much a fan. Sure it's good to eat, but if I go out, I'm getting something else. I made this first with other noodles and it's just not as good. The Lasagnace noodles we have in the store are just the best.

Lasagna in a Pan

1 pkg Lasagnace Noodles
16 oz pasta sauce
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 onion, diced
1lb ground beef, or turkey (optional)
2 tbsp Garlic Olive Oil, divided (plus additional for the ground meat)
1 tbsp Italian Table Blend

Cook your pasta and drain. Return to a large pan and toss with 1tbsp Garlic Olive Oil to prevent it from sticking.

Heat 1 tbsp of Olive Oil to medium heat. Saute the onion 4-5 minutes. Add the spices and stir to mix them into the oil well.

If you are using meat, you can add it to that pan and brown it over medium heat with one tbsp Garlic Olive Oil if needed. Cook for 8-10 minutes, until it is no longer pink inside.

Reduce the heat in your pan and add the cheeses and sauce and stir until combined. Let simmer 5 minutes, or until the cheeses are well melted.

Slowly add the sauce to the noodles and toss together.

You just made Lasagna!
