  • 1 lb ground Italian sausage turkey or pork
  • 1/2 small onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 8 lasagna noodles broken into 1 inch pieces
  • 24 oz jar marinara sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes optional
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • fresh parsley and/or basil for garnish


  1. Add the sausage, onion, and garlic to a large skillet over med-high heat. Brown the sausage and break up with a wooden spoon while it cooks, about 5-10 minutes until no longer pink. Drain any excess fat.

  2. Stir in marinara, water, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes (optional), and broken lasagna noodles. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes.

  3. Stir in ricotta, and half of the parm and mozz cheeses. Warm the cheeses through uncovered for about 5 minutes until melted and combined. Sprinkle with remainder of cheese and allow to melt, and garnish with parsley/basil. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

I like to use hot Italian turkey sausage, it has great flavor with a little kick. If you can't find spicy, just add the red pepper flakes to your mild sausage.
