Lasagna that isn't lasagna

The best lasagna that isn’t lasagna recipe

Last updated on May 19th, 2017 at 06:50 pm

So, likely you have heard me waxing poetic about my Instant Pot. If by some chance you missed it, you can get up to speed here. There are times when a gal just needs something hot and bubbly from her oven, you know?

Allow me to introduce this super simple lasagna, that isn’t lasagna.

Here’s the thing, lasagna prep can be time-consuming and if you are helping kiddos with homework in between boiling noodles and layering on a Monday night, chances are you feel like there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done.

Sure, you will still have to layer, but you won’t have to boil noodles. I am aware that there is an option of lasagna noodle that doesn’t have to be boiled but…I don’t love them.

Not lasagna, lasagna

First, grab your favorite casserole dish, I used the round Le Cruset that my sweet husband gave me for Christmas that was just begging to be used. but an 8×8 Pyrex would work just as well.

Cheese, oh glorious cheese! Don’t be shy with your cheese, the cheesier the better in my book.

Enough with the teaser photos, let’s get down to business with the recipe.

    Yum!! Do you miss the ricotta at all? I love that part of regular lasagna, but I suppose the ravioli is cheese stuffed so maybe that makes up for it…? ????

      I didn’t actually miss the ricotta at all. In the ravioli the cheese is just like ricotta (if not actually ricotta). It all worked out beautifully!
