This cheat’s version of lasagne is perfect for the nights when you don’t have the time, or the energy to whip up a real deal lasagne. It’s packed full of flavour, delicious to eat and always a family-pleaser.



1 tablespoon olive oil

1 onion, chopped

3 garlic cloves, chopped finely

3 x 400g cans diced tomatoes

1 teaspoon white sugar

2 packets fresh spinach and ricotta tortellini

200g mozzarella cheese, sliced thickly

Salt and pepper, to season

Fresh basil


  1. Preheat oven to 200ºC fan-forced. Prepare a large dish, around 25cm x 25cm and 5cm deep. Spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat the oil over a medium to high heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until just soft. Add in the tomatoes and bring to the boil. Add in the sugar, and mix.
  3. Turn the heat down to medium and let the sauce simmer for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. While the sauce is simmering, cook the tortellini in boiling water, as per the packet instructions. Drain and place into the prepared dish.
  5. Tear a handful of basil and stir through the tomato sauce, and then spoon over the cooked tortellini.
  6. Top with the sliced mozzarella and cook until golden, around 20-25 minutes. Top with a little extra basil once cooked. Serve while hot.
