Pizza Hut Tuscani Lasagna

This contest is over. The winner is Rebecca C. Congrats!

spclasagna_lgThis week Pizza Hut offered up their newest Tuscani pasta: Lasagna.  This is their fourth variety in their line of Tuscani Pastas.  Each order comes with 5 breadsticks and is enough food to feed four people for only $14.99. This Tuscani pasta features lasagna noodles, real ricotta, parmesan and Romano cheeses, and a hearty Italian-seasoned meat sauce.

I’ve had a rough week at my place, so we ordered this on a night where we knew we didn’t want to make dinner.  As you all know, we love Pizza Hut here.  Needless to say, the Tuscani lasagna did not disappoint.  This was a filling meal for all of us, and there was none left when we were done.  Madison has turned into the pickiest eater ever, and she even cleaned off her plate.  We love that Pizza Hut has a great offering if you want good quality food without having to just order pizza.

Skillet Lasagna

When it is just me and the kids, I tend not to take pictures.  I have a hard time getting everyone situated and that is just what happened with this recipe.  Now, this is a recipe you can definitely customize to what you want.  I am going to list this easy to make recipe the way I made it.  However, next time I will be adding some diced tomatoes to this and possibly some ricotta cheese too.



Skillet Lasagna
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 jar (26 oz) spaghetti sauce
  • 1⅔ cups of water
  • ¼ cup of Italian Dressing
  • 12 lasagna noodles (broken into quarters)
  • 1 cup shredded low moisture part skim mozzarella cheese
  1. Brown ground beef and drain.
  2. Add in garlic, spaghetti sauce, water, and dressing. Bring this to a boil and then stir in the noodles. Reduce the heat to medium low and cover. Cook 10 - 15 minutes or until your noodles are tender. Remove from heat and sprinkle with cheese. Cover again and let stand 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Slow Cooker Lasagna

When you have a husband who doesn’t get home at the same time every night, you need some good slow cooker recipes in your back pocket.  This easy to make slow cooker recipe is a winner in my house. It also will leave you with leftovers to eat and enjoy.

Slow Cooker Lasagna
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 (29 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 (12 oz) package of lasagna noodles
  • 12 oz cottage cheese
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 lb shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. In a skillet, cook the ground beef, onion, and garlic until brown. Stir in the the tomato sauce, tomato paste, salt, and oregano. Cook until heated through.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the cottage cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, and shredded mozzarella cheese.
  3. Spoon a layer of the meat mixture onto the bottom of the slow cooker. Add a double of layer of the uncooked lasagna noodles. Break to fit the noodles into the slow cooker if needed. Top the noodles with a portion of the cheese mixture. Repeat the layering of sauce, noodles, and cheese until all the ingredients are used.
  4. Cover and cook on low heat in a slow cooker for 6-8 hours.
