Cheesy One-Pan Spicy Lasagna Recipe Is Husband Approved

Tonight my hubby made dinner for us! He is making me more recipes lately, and it’s cute watching him cook. This easy one-pot spicy lasagna recipe was really good!

The cheesy pasta recipe has spicy Italian sausage, broccoli rabe and three cheeses. It will definitely fix that pasta craving!

Cuisine: Italian
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 55 minutes
Total Time: 65 minutes
Servings: 6 to 8


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds spicy Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 3 shallots, finely minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest (from 2 lemons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 bunch broccoli rabe, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 jar (25 ounces) marinara sauce
  • 8 ounces no-boil lasagna noodles
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan
  • 16 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into large chunks
  • 1/2 cup grated Gruyere

Here's how to make it:

  1. Heat the olive oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking it up as you stir, until cooked through and browned, about 7 minutes.
  2. Add the shallots and garlic and cook about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the lemon zest and crushed red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring, 2 more minutes.
  4. Add the broccoli rabe and salt. Cook until broccoli rabe wilts, about 2 minutes. Pour the mixture into a bowl.
  5. Spread a thin layer of the marinara sauce in the skillet. Add the remaining marinara to the sausage mixture. Mix well. 
  6. Layer half of the lasagna noodles on top of the marinara in the skillet, breaking them if needed to fit. Cover with the sausage mixture. Add 3/4 cup of the Parmesan and half of the mozzarella. Layer with the remaining noodles. Cover with the remaining sausage mixture. Top with the remaining cheese and Gruyere. 
  7. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 40 minutes or until it is bubbly and golden on top.
