How to Make Lasagna in an Air Fryer
What You’ll Need
Making lasagna in an air fryer requires a few simple ingredients and some patience. You’ll need ground beef, sweet Italian sausage, tomato sauce, ricotta cheese, egg, mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, lasagna noodles, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, and salt and pepper.
Step 1: Prepare the Ingredients
Begin by preparing the ingredients. Brown the ground beef and sausage in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the meat is cooked through, drain off any excess fat and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, egg, mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, and salt and pepper. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.
Step 2: Layer the Lasagna Noodles
Spray the air fryer basket with non-stick cooking spray. Place a layer of lasagna noodles in the bottom of the basket. Top the noodles with a layer of the meat and cheese mixture, followed by a layer of tomato sauce. Continue layering the noodles, meat and cheese mixture, and tomato sauce until the basket is full. Close the lid of the air fryer.
Step 3: Cook the Lasagna
Set the air fryer to 400°F and cook the lasagna for 25-30 minutes. Once the lasagna is cooked through and the cheese is melted and bubbly, remove from the air fryer and serve.
Tips and Tricks
You can make this dish even easier by using pre-cooked ground beef or pre-made lasagna noodles. If you don’t have an air fryer, you can also cook this lasagna in the oven. Simply preheat your oven to 375°F and bake the lasagna for 45 minutes. Enjoy!
