One Pot Lasagna


6 serves
45 minutes


This one pot lasagna recipe saves so much time and still tastes just as delicious as a traditional lasagna. Our mozzarella ball is the perfect substitute for béchamel sauce – so easy!

Ensure you use a pot/pan that is about 28-30cm & is oven safe (handle too)




250g Mozzarella Ball
3 tbsp olive oil
2 medium onions, chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 carrot, grated
1 zucchini, grated (optional)
1kg beef mince
2 bay leaves (optional)
2 tbsp tomato paste
400g tinned crushed tomatoes
700g passata
1 beef stock cube
1 1/2 cups water
1 packet fresh lasagna sheets
pinch salt and pepper
basil to garnish


1 Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
2 Heat the olive oil in an oven-proof safe skillet on the stove. Add the onions and stir for 2-3 minutes, add the garlic and do the same. Then add the grated veggies and stir for 2-3 minutes.
3 Increase the heat to high and add the beef mince in chunks. Use a wooden spoon to break up the mince, until it’s in small pieces for approximately 5 minutes. Add the bay leaves, tinned tomatoes, passata and beef stock cube. Refill the passata bottle with about 1.5-2 cups of water, shake it and pour into the sauce. Season well with pepper and salt. Let the sauce simmer for 10 minutes to develop flavour.
4 Turn the heat down to a simmer. Tear the fresh lasagna sheets in half and submerge them into the sauce, one at a time. Use a wooden spoon to gently push them to the bottom. Continue with the rest of the sheets, filling the empty spaces and covering with the sauce.
5 Top the lasagna with thick Mozzarella slices.
6 Place the lid on the pan and bake for 15-20 minutes in the oven. Remove the lid and sprinkle over the basil. Serve.
