Stovetop frying pan lasagna
Lidia Bastianich wrote a new cookbook and she included stove top lasagna.
I read the recipe and it was a little sketchy (I often find written
recipes a little confusing) and she did not put any
Meat in it, I think. I took inspiration from this recipe and did it my way.
I did a pictorial in chronological order.
Here I did it my way…and it went together quickly and it was
so fun. I didn’t put any eggs in the ricotta..I also made garlic bread with mozzarella and after it came out of the air fryer I topped each piece with an anchovy.
It was very good and went together quickly.
1 - 28 oz can plum tomatoes
8 broken ( uncooked )lasagna noodles in 4 pieces
2 cups ricotta
2 handfuls of grating cheese
2 Handful of shredded mozzarella
Chopped Parsley, torn basil, garlic, salt/pepper
and Italian seasoning.
First I made a marinara sauce with one can of plum tomatoes
That I wizzed through the food processor. fried 3 cloves of garlic
In a little extra virgin olive oil …then added the tomatoes, salt/pepper
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, about 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
and 2 tablespoons half and half. simmered it for about 15 minutes while
I sautéed 12 oz of chopped up sausages ( without the skins) in a dollop of oil.
After the sausages were cooked I added a few tablespoons of sauce on
Top of the sausage.
Then I put down broken lasagna noodles, then more sauce, then one cup of
Ricotta mixed with one cup of ricotta and a handful of mozzarella and grating cheese, a bit of salt and some chopped parsley…spooned on more sauce and put on more parsley and basil
Then put down more noodles, more sauce and the second cup of ricotta
Mixed with mozzarella, grating cheese, salt and parsley, and spooned more
Sauce on top…added the top layer of noodles, covered it with sauce and
Torn basil and grating cheese…put the flame on very low ( I also used a defuser)
Covered the pan tightly and simmered it for 25 minutes. ( the edges bubbled all around) I Checked if the noodles were done with a knife…then put mozzarella on top and put it under the broiler to Melt the cheese…it was really delicious and Fun to make.
Note: while you’re putting this together do not stir anything, just make layers
