I was hungry for lasagna but didn’t want the work or to make my air conditioning work harder by turning on the oven, plus I needed to go to the store.
Left with the desire for lasagna and not much to make it with I chose to come up with a one pot on the stove lasagna. I had three noodles, small can of tomato sauce and stewed tomatoes and it gets better one lonely zucchini that I needed to use up. So with a handful of ingredients this is what I came up with.
Not only did I have my dinner in about 30 minutes but left overs too. This made about a serving for four but when you are cooking for one and like left overs like I do it works out great.
One Pot Lasagna:
1 or 2 Tablespoons of diced garlic
One small onion chopped or diced ( I used purple because I already had it chopped)
4 small sweet peppers chopped
1 small zucchini cut in bite sized pieces ( I did bite sized and grated 1/4 of the zucchini )
3 lasagna noodles broken up
1 8 oz can of tomato sauce
1 14.5 oz can of stewed tomatoes
Hand full of mozzarella cheese
Per your taste dried oregano, parsley, marjoram, salt and pepper
In sauce pan sauté onion, garlic, zucchini pieces, sweet peppers until the onions is almost transparent. add stewed tomatoes and sauce then if you have some of your zucchini grated add it at this time with your cheese. Stir and simmer as you add your broken noodles
After you add the broken noodles keep heat to a low simmer and add a lid. This should take about 20 minutes to cook but could be a few minutes longer depending on the noodles.
I like mine with a lot of sauce so I placed it in a bowl with bread and topped with parmesan, and Ooh so good.
