Lasagna is an all-time classic Italian dish that most of us absolutely adore. But making it from scratch can turn out to be quite overwhelming, especially if you are tight on time and ingredients. Well, good news for you because in this piece, we’re going to make a flavorful and delicious lasagna using minimal ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. It’s going to be an absolute treat, so let’s get right into it!

To start off, you’ll need:

– 1 pack of lasagna noodles
– 500g of ground beef or pork
– 1 jar of tomato sauce (we recommend Ragu)
– 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
– ½ cup of grated parmesan cheese
– Salt to taste
– Pepper to taste

Now, if you don’t have Ragu in your pantry, don’t worry, you can still make this recipe work with other brands such as Bertolli, Prego, or Barilla. And if you happen to live in a different part of the world where these brands aren’t available, just grab any brand of tomato sauce that you can find on the shelves. Trust me; it’ll work just as well!

First, let’s cook the lasagna noodles as per the instructions on the package. Once cooked, set them aside.

Next, let’s prepare the meat sauce. In a skillet, cook the ground beef or pork over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add a pinch of salt and pepper to give it that extra flavor. When the meat is cooked through, drain the excess fat and add the tomato sauce. Mix everything together and let it simmer for a couple of minutes.

Now that your noodles and meat sauce are ready, let’s start layering the lasagna. Grab a baking dish and spoon a bit of the meat sauce onto the bottom. Then, add a layer of lasagna noodles on top of the sauce. Next, spoon more meat sauce over the noodles to cover them completely, and then sprinkle a generous amount of mozzarella cheese over that. Repeat these layers – noodles, meat sauce, and cheese – until you reach the top of the dish. On the final layer, sprinkle the grated parmesan cheese on top of the mozzarella.

Cover the dish with foil and then bake in a preheated oven at 375°F for about 25-30 minutes. After that, remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes until the cheese on the top is melted and golden brown.

Let the lasagna cool for about 5-10 minutes before serving so that the layers can set. And there you have it – a simple yet heavenly and delicious lasagna that can be whipped up in no time!

So there you have it, folks – a recipe that requires minimal ingredients, can be made in a short amount of time, and tastes oh-so-good! Try it out tonight and let us know how it turned out. Bon appétit!
