This was so delicious!! We made this last week and I loved how simple it was and the fact that everything cooked in one pot together. We will definitely be adding this into our week night dinner rotation. It made for yummy leftovers too!
EASY ONE POT BOWTIE LASAGNA
The easiest 30-min lasagna made in a single pot – no boiling, no layering, nothing – the pasta gets cooked right in the pan!
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 Italian sausage links, casing removed
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional
8 ounces farfalle pasta
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1 cup ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add Italian sausage and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the sausage as it cooks; drain excess fat.
Stir in diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, oregano, basil, garlic powder and red pepper flakes; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Bring to a simmer and stir in pasta and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer until pasta is cooked through, about 13-15 minutes.
Remove from heat. Stir in mozzarella and Parmesan until well combined. Using a small cookie scoop, top with dollops of ricotta and cover until heated through, about 2-4 minutes.
Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
