Lazy Lasagna

Lazy Lasagna, instead of having to construct all of the layers and bake everything in the oven you’ll cut out a few steps and make a pasta dish that tastes like lasagna but in half of the time.

    Its amazingly good!!! Who would have thought there was broccoli and spinach in the sauce. I emulsified the sauce to breakdown the broccoli and spinach a bit further. So good!

      Thank you, glad you enjoyed and pro move with the sauce 😎

    How were you able to keep the calories so low? A pound of Italian sausage is super high in fat and calories? I put all of my ingredients into Myfitnesspal and I’m looking at 943 calories per serving. The taste is amazing, I just wish the fat and calories were lower.

        You are right, had some weird issue using MyFitnessPal in the browser. I entered the recipe on the mobile app and it came out to 570 calories per serving. Such a good recipe, I’ve enjoyed everything I have made.

    I’m following the bulking recipe and I’ve tried logging this recipe myself into myfitnesspal several times and every time my calories come out to 1,306 per serving. 120g C / 36g F/ 102g P.
    The sausage I am using would add 82 cals more per serving, and I am using Barilla Protein + pasta which has more protein but less calories than normal pasta so it still wouldn’t make sense why what I’m logging in comes out to 474 calories more per serving?

      The food selections in myfitnesspal can vary a lot. If you chose different ones than i did that could easily account for the difference. I always recommend calculating your own with the exact ingredients you used.

        Thank you! Yes for some reason I had to log it as a meal instead of a recipe so I could scan everything and got down to 960 cal. per serving which makes sense now according to brands I used. The recipe is delicious though!

    Friendly question, why don’t you try and save more calories in your recipes with items that are no fat or no sugar. For example in this recipe, you can use fat free cottage cheese and fat free mozzarella to save a ton of calories. The goal would be to maximize volume, but keep the calories low. Also, there is lower fat turkey available (97/3 and i think 99/1) as you are aware I am sure. These are the things i do when i make your awesome recipes, but always wonder why you don’t employ the same thing. I am able to make my portions much larger in some cases and make it more filling for longer.

    1. Josh Cortis

      Most times it’s either because it’s more expensive than i want to pay for those ingredients or i need the extra fat for flavor

    Oh my god this is probably one of the best you’ve made Josh. Right up there with the Firecracker Beef. Absolutely delicious. Incredible it’s 550 calories.

    How do you know that ur hitting your protein amount since everything is mixed all together?

    1. Josh Cortis

      You divide the total amount for the recipe by how many servings you make and if you eat all of the food it equals out to be the same

    What should you do if you cant get broccoli slaw?

    1. Logan Stowell

      The stuff I buy typically looks like a match stick dice of carrots and broccoli, and that broccoli mostly stems. I bet if you hit the same weight with 2/3 broccoli 1/3 carrots it would probably work out.

    Accidentally bought Tomato Sauce instead of diced tomatoes. Still came out great! Underestimated the portions. 5 servings is perfect for weekday lunches.

    I would say this was a 5 star recipe with some very small changes. I added garlic powder after feeling the first two lunches were missing something and that’s really all it was missing, was some garlic and then YUM!! Very filling, too. I think I might pull back on the cottage cheese next time but I think this is a fantastic starter meal for people starting a weight loss journey. My 5 year old saw me eat this and asked when I was making her some, haha.

    I cooked this tonight full of confidence, and then full of concern, and then confidence again.
    I used the recipe for weight loss which changes things up.
    I used 13g olive oil since the meat didn’t have much fat/oil. After trying that out, I could have probably gotten away with just spraying the pan.
    I also think I should have added in garlic and onion to give it more pizzazz (maybe the sausage version tastes different).
    (Should have read some comments first since I see someone mentioned that).
    And – I might add in mushrooms next time because I’m wild like that!

    I followed the weight loss version of the recipe and this was absolutely fantastic. One recommendation I’d give to anyone who makes the weight loss version is to mix the ground turkey with a blend of Italian spices (I believe I used Oregano, Basil, Salt, Pepper, Red Pepper Flakes, Onion Powder, and Garlic Powder) to bring back some of those flavors you miss from omitting the Italian sausage.
