This cheesy lazy one pot lasagna is the perfect answer to “What should I make tonight?”. It’s made with ingredients that you already have at hand, and there’s an easy shortcut!
Yes, we do have internet at home now. No, we still don’t have furniture in the living room. But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to work, because a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.
We are really hoping that our futon arrives today and that’s why I’m home now sitting on the hard floor (ouch!) writing this post. The weather was so nice through the weekend and now it’s all gloomy and rainy, just like in Seattle. I know it’s going to get cold later on and it will start snowing before Christmas.
For that type of weather, as fancy as I like to be some times, we still will need good comfort food for our lazy gloomy days to be spent watching “Friends” – even if I have seen every single episode at least 15 times. Now, what shouts “comfort” more than a cheesy lazy one pot lasagna?
I used Ragu Homestyle for this recipe to have a better texture and flavor. I like Ragu because it taste like homemade pasta sauce and it comes in different flavors. I have already made this one pan chicken parmesan pasta and this sausage mushroom pasta and both were our favorites.
To make this cheesy lazy one pot lasagna I used ground turkey because it’s lighter and can be flavored very well. I made a spice mix of my own to see how it works out, and the result was great! So yes, do yourself a favor and use ground turkey, you won’t regret it.
Well, that’s it! Make this cheesy lazy one pot lasagna and start enjoying the new season!

- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon chili pepper
- 1 12 teaspoon dried basil leaves
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 lb ground turkey

Mix all the spices in a small bowl and set aside.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in deep pan or a pot. Saute ground turkey until cooked through. Add half of the spice mix and saute for a minute or two. Take ground turkey out of the pan and set aside.
Heat remaining olive oil in the same pan and saute onion until translucent. Add the remaining vegetables and cook for 10 to 15 minutes. Add in cooked turkey and stir. Add Ragu pasta sauce and water. Bring to boil, turn the heat to low and keep it simmering on low.
Break the lasagna noodles in half and add them to the sauce. Try to have the sauce cover the noodles. Cover the pan and simmer until the noodles are cooked.
Uncover and let it simmer for 2 -3 minutes, add shredded mozzarella cheese and cover until the cheese is melted.
