Crescent Lasagna Pie


I absolutely loved this!  It has all the flavors of lasagna on top of a crescent roll crust.  This dish is assembled as it bakes.  You bake the crust for a few minutes, add the meat, bake, add the cheese layer and bake some more.  I browned the meat ahead of time so this didn't have any real prep work.  I just prepared the next layer while the current layer baked.  We both really liked this.  It was even good reheated the next day.  Serve this with a side salad for a quick Italian feast!



Crescent Lasagna Pie
serves 6
adapted from Cooking What I Pin
(Printable Recipe)


1 12-ounce can large crescent roll dough
1 pound Italian sausage, cooked and drained
2 cups shredded mozzarella
3/4 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup marinara sauce
1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 350.

Lightly spray a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray.  Separate crescent rolls into 8 triangles.  Press triangles and press into bottom of pie plate.  Bake for 10 minutes.

Remove crust from oven and top with sausage and 1 cup of cheese.  Put back in the oven for 5 minutes, until cheese is melted.

Remove crust from oven and spread ricotta cheese on top of sausage.  Sprinkle with 3/4 tsp Italian seasoning.  Top with spaghetti sauce.  Spread remaining cheese over spaghetti sauce and sprinkle  with remaining Italian seasoning.

Bake for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.  Allow to cool for 10 minutes before slicing.

Pin It!

  6. Do you think this would work with a regular pie crust?

  7. question, do we use spaghetti or marinara sauce? in the directions spaghetti sauce is listed.

    and what about the regular pie crust? will it work or is it not flake enough like crescent roll dough.
    thanks

  8. Sthrngal - I consider spaghetti sauce and marinara to be the same thing. I am not sure how a pie crust would work. You could give it a try

  10. HI!

    I made this for dinner last night and it was really good! I made 2 small changes because I had the stuff on hand: I used garlic crescents & added a little parmesan cheese (like 1/4 - 1/2 C, I had some fresh that was nearly down to the rind, I just shredded it right on top of the ricotta, before the sauce and cheese.).

    VERY yummy, easy to make and boyfriend approved :-)

    This is a Plain Chicken weekend, I have the Mississippi Pot Roast in the slow cooker right now and the house smells *divine*

    Thanks & have a great day!

    Beth
