Frying Pan Lasagna Recipe

I seldom cook but whenever I get the urge to whip up something good, I rely on the internet to give some really awesome recipes. As I was searching for the best mouth watering recipe I chanced upon the 30-minute Frying Pan Lasagna recipe. The photo just caught my fancy because it looks really delicious. I might try it this weekend or next week when my sister and her family arrive from China. It will really be a nice treat for them. I'm sure everyone will love it not just the kids.

Frying Pan Lasagna

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 medium red finely chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 medium red capsicum finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 410g can crushed tomatoes
  • 3 fresh lasagne sheets cut into thirds
  • 1/2 x 250g tub cream cheese
  • 100g shaved leg ham
  • 3/4 cup grated tasty cheese
  • Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, to serve
  1. Heat half the oil in an 18cm (base), heavy-based frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic and capsicum. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add oregano and tomato. Season with salt. Cook for 2 minutes or until heated through. Transfer to a bowl. Wipe pan clean.

  2. Spread 1 side of each piece of lasagne with cream cheese. Drizzle remaining oil over base of pan. Arrange 2 pieces of lasagne, cream cheese side-up, over base of pan. Top with one-third of the ham, then one-quarter tomato mixture. Repeat layers, finishing with 3 pieces of lasagne then 1 layer tomato mixture. Sprinkle with tasty cheese. Preheat grill on high.

  3. Return pan to medium-low heat. Cook, covered, for 8 to 10 minutes or until lasagne sheets are tender. Remove lid. Grill for 5 to 6 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden. Season with pepper. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve.
