Air Fried Lasagna

ingredients:

  • Lasagna noodles
    -Marinara sauce
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Minced meat or Italian sausage (optional)
  • Italian seasoning
  • Salt and Pepper

    directions:

  • Prepare ingredients: Cook lasagna noodles according to package instructions. Meanwhile, prepare the marinara sauce and mix the ricotta, mozzarella, and Parmesan together in a bowl. If using ground beef or Italian sausage, brown them in a skillet with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  • Assemble the lasagna: In a baking dish or air fryer-safe pan, place the ingredients starting with a thin layer of marinara sauce followed by the lasagna noodles and the cheese and meat mixture (if using). Repeat layers until all ingredients are used, finishing with a layer of marinara sauce on top.
  • Air Frying: Preheat the air fryer to 375°F (190°C). Place the assembled lasagna in the air fryer basket or on the air fryer tray, being careful not to crowd it. Cook for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is cooked and the edges are golden brown.
  • Serving: Carefully remove the lasagna from the air fryer and let it cool for a few minutes before cutting and serving. Garnish with fresh basil or parsley if desired.

    Tips for success:

  • Use a good quality marinara sauce: The flavor of your lasagna depends largely on the quality of the marinara sauce you use. Choose homemade or high-quality store-bought sauce for best results.
  • Do not overfill the air fryer: Be sure to leave some space around the lasagna in the air fryer basket or tray to allow for proper air circulation and even cooking.
  • Experiment with Ingredients: Feel free to customize your air fried lasagna with different cheeses, meats, and vegetables to suit your taste preferences.
