This easy lasagna recipe shows you how to make lasagna in 15 minutes from start to finish.



  • 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 cups diced onion
  • 23 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (9.6 oz) bag Jimmy Dean pre-cooked turkey sausage crumbles OR 1/2 lb cooked pork breakfast sausage
  • 8 oz (about 10) lasagna noodles, broken into 1/4ths
  • 1 (10 oz) can Ro-tel diced tomatoes (or regular diced tomatoes)
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 cups water
  • salt and pepper to taste, about 1/2 teaspoon each
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 4 oz fresh mozzarella pearls


  1. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef and onion over medium-high heat stirring occasionally until browned. Drain excess grease if necessary. Stir in the minced garlic and cook for one minute until fragrant.
  2. Evenly add the pre-cooked sausage, lasagna pieces, tomatoes, tomato sauce, and water over the skillet. Sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper. Stir gently to combine.
  3. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes over medium to medium-low heat. Shake the skillet occasionally to evenly distribute the noodles as they soften. Remove from heat and stir in cheese. Top with mozzarella pearls and broil for 3-4 minutes until golden and bubbly.
