Stovetop skillet lasagna with Caesar salad
40 - 50 Minutes
Loaded with ground beef and pork, this hearty lasagna requires no oven nor extra pans; the noodles and sauce both simmer together in one skillet on the stove.
- 1 yellow onion
- 5 ounces ground beef
- 5 ounces ground pork
- 6 ounces lasagna noodles
- ½ teaspoon red chile flakes (optional)
- Sun Basket marinara sauce (tomatoes - canola-olive oil blend - tomato paste - fresh garlic - balsamic vinegar - salt - black pepper)
- 1 lemon
- ¼ pound fresh mozzarella
- ½ cup fresh ricotta
- ½ cup grated Parmesan
- Fresh basil
- 1/2 cups garlic croutons
- 1 romaine heart
- Sun Basket Caesar dressing (mayonnaise - Parmesan - sherry vinegar - Dijon mustard - fresh garlic - anchovies - black pepper)
Prep the onion, ground meat, and lasagna noodles
- Peel and finely chop the yellow onion.
- Cut off a small corner of the ground beef packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate and pat dry with a paper towel. Repeat with the ground pork.
- Break the lasagna noodles in half or into thirds.
Cook the sauce and noodles
Add the lasagna noodles, marinara sauce, and 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, gently pressing the noodles into the sauce as they start to soften. Cover and cook, gently tossing the noodles with the sauce occasionally, until the noodles are tender, 18 to 20 minutes.
While the sauce and noodles cook, prepare the remaining ingredients.
Prep the mozzarella-ricotta mixture
- Cut the lemon in half. Zest half into a small bowl.
- Squeeze 1 teaspoon lemon juice from the other lemon half into a large bowl; set aside for the salad.
- Tear the mozzarella into small pieces.
Finish the lasagna
While the lasagna rests, prepare the basil and salad.

- Coarsely chop or break up the croutons into ½-inch pieces.
- Break the lasagna noodles.
- Juice the lemon half.
- Tear the mozzarella.
