Aside from chicken pie, the Tall Boy’s very favorite meal is lasagna. But preparing a traditional version just doesn’t work in our typical work-night timetable.  We have approximately 30 minutes between work and the beginning of karate class, and about 45 minutes between the end of karate class and bedtime.  I need quick and easy dinners, folks.

Needless to say, the Tall Boy has been denied lasagna for dinner for quite some time…until now.

No.  It’s not a traditional version.

But all of the flavors are here – without all of the fuss, work and time.

Believe me, the Tall Boy didn’t mind one bit that I made this on the stovetop rather than in the oven, or that it wasn’t a “pretty” square served up on his plate {I’ll admit, this didn’t hold up well scooping out of the pan – but it was a sacrifice we were willing to make. 🙂 ).

In fact, his exact words were, “This is awesome.  Now I can have lasagna more often.”

30-Minute Stovetop Lasagna

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1½ pound ground beef
  • ¾ teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 12 ounce package lasagna noodles, broken in pieces
  • 28 ounce can tomatoes, undrained and chopped
  • 15 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 15 ounce container ricotta cheese
  • 2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend

Method

  1. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add garlic, beef, and spices. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beef is no longer pink – about 8 to 10 minutes.; top with Italian cheese.
  2. Place lasagna noodles over meat mixture; top with tomatoes, tomato sauce, basil and ½ cup water. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes or until noodles are tender.
  3. Dollop ricotta cheese evenly over mixture, stirring slightly. Cover and let stand 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
