A note about serious food allergies

Skillets are known for their ease. Lasagna is known for its complexity. How can two contradictory concepts come together in one meal? Life is a contradiction, my friend. Lean into the confusion, and enjoy the ease of making this meal, with flavors that portend intricacy to the highest degree. Two cheeses, a slew of veggies, and garlic bread on the side? The only evaluation you'll need at the end: delicious.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Medium Pot
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 1 Colander
  • 1 Medium Oven-Safe Pan

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Cook the Noodles

    Cook the Noodles

    Break up noodles into five to seven pieces per noodle. Pieces don't have to be even. Once water is boiling, add noodles and cook until al dente, 8-10 minutes. Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water. Drain noodles in a colander, then run briefly under cold water to stop cooking the process. Set aside. While noodles cook, prepare ingredients.

  • Step 2 - Prepare Ingredients and Cook Vegetables

    Prepare Ingredients and Cook Vegetables

    Trim zucchini ends, halve lengthwise, and cut into ½" dice. Halve and peel onion. Cut halves into ¼" dice. Mince garlic. Place a medium oven-safe pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add zucchini and red onion to hot pan. Stir often until lightly browned and tender, 3-5 minutes. Add spinach, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper and cook until spinach is wilted, 1 minute. Transfer vegetables to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

  • Step 3 - Make the Sauce

    Make the Sauce

    Add marinara, cream, reserved pasta cooking water, half the garlic (reserve remaining for garlic bread), ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Bring to a rolling boil and boil 1 minute. Rolling means more than a few bubbles; a rolling boil means water is boiling vigorously. Remove from burner.

  • Step 4 - Assemble the Lasagna

    Assemble the Lasagna

    Stir pasta, vegetables, and Parmesan into pan with sauce. Top with mozzarella.

  • Step 5 - Finish Lasagna and Cook Garlic Bread

    Finish Lasagna and Cook Garlic Bread

    Place pan with lasagna in hot oven and bake until mozzarella is bubbly and lightly browned, 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and rest 5 minutes. While lasagna rests, halve French roll and place on prepared baking sheet, cut side up. Spread 1 tsp. olive oil and remaining garlic on rolls. Bake until bread is golden brown, 5-6 minutes. Serve family-style. Bon appétit!
