This recipe has made its rounds on Instagram and deserves all it’s glory. It is jam packed with flavor, extremely easy to make and reheats incredibly well. Not only is it macro friendly but it’s baby, toddler, husband and in-laws approved as well. Could you ask for anything more??

  • This recipe is perfect when wanted to impress guest with something new but flavors they’ll know and love.
  • It’s incredibly macro friendly at under 500 calories a serving and can be adjusted to include even more protein by swapping the noodles.
  • Perfect dish for a busy weeknight meal after soccer practice, meal prep for the week or for guests.

Can you make this recipe ahead?

Yes, absolutely! You can prep your noodles and meat the night before for a even quicker lazy lasagna at the time you’re ready to make this recipe. Meal prep and save in portioned dishes to bring to work.

Can you freeze this dish?

Yes! Freeze in portioned servings to pull out later! I do suggest waiting to add the ricotta cheese on fresh after defrosting and reheating so that it melts nicely into the noodles and sauce. To make it even easier to grab this Lazy Lasagna for prep, freeze in Souper Cube. Use code OHSNAPMACROS10 for 10% off your first order.

How to make this recipe gluten and dairy free

To make a dairy and/or gluten free lazy lasagna Swap out the cheese with your favorite dairy free cheese. Like this Daiya Dairy Free Mozzarella. Kite Hill also has an awesome dairy free ricotta cheese.

To make this gluten free use your favorite gluten free pasta noodles. Some examples: chickpea pasta like Banza or brown rice noodles like Jovial Penne.

Ingredients and substitutes:

These are the ingredients for the lazy lasagna. For the full list of ingredients scroll down to the recipe card. 

Ground beef: you can swap with your favorite ground meat like chicken, turkey or sausage. 

Marinara Sauce: I personally use Rao’s Homemade marinara. It uses clean ingredients and no sure, you can find it in a large multi pack at Costco and it’s absolutely delicious. It tastes homemade, hence the name! Swap with your favorite marinara sauce or better yet, homemade. 

Rigatoni Noodles: this recipe is using De Cecco no. 24 Rigatoni, you can use your favorite pasta noodles, gluten free noodles or protein packed noodles like Barilla Penne.
