Lasanga-Baked Fusilli

Last week I shared with y'all the first meals I received in my first Hello Fresh box! I shared one recipe with y'all, the Meatballs on Top of Cavatappi and had many requests to share the lasanga dish with y'all as well! 

Lasanga-Baked Fusilli

  • 8 oz ground beef
  • 1 onion
  • 4 oz kale
  • 1/4 cup panko
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 6 oz fusilli
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 oz fresh mozzarella
  • 1 box diced tomatoes
  • pepper
  • salt
  • Wash & dry all produce. Heat broiler to high. Bring a large pot of water with a large pinch of salt to boil. Halve, peel, and finely chop onion. Mince or grate garlic. Remove and discard kale ribs and stems, then roughly chop leaves. Tear mozzarella into small pieces.
  • Add fusilli to boiling water and cook until al denta, 9-11 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta cooking water then drain. Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat (use an ovenproof pan if you have one). Add onion and cook, until softened, 4-5 minutes.
  • Add beef, garlic, oregano, and as much of the chili flakes as you like to pan. Break up meat into pieces with a spatula or wooden spoon. Cook until browned and no longer pink, 3-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from pan and reserve. Carefully drain excess grease left by beef.
  • Return pan to heat and add kale. Cook, tossing, until wilted, 4-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. TIP: Add a splash of water if you are having trouble getting leaves to wilt.
  • Add fusilli, beef mixture, diced tomatoes, and half the mozzarella to pan with kale. Toss, adding just enough pasta cooking water to give tomatoes a saucy consistency. Season with salt and pepper. TIP: if you pan isn't ovenproof, transfer mixture to a small, lightly oiled baking dish at this point.
  • Sprinkle remaining mozzarella and panko breadcrumbs over lasagna. Place under broiler and broil until cheese is melted, about 3 minutes. Divide between plates and serve.
