Oozy, bubbly baked lasagna is everyone’s favorite, but all that layering and time in the oven can make it a drag to put together. For a quicker, easier variation, we’ve swapped the lasagna noodles for fusilli. The short and springy pasta gets tossed with usual suspects like ground beef, mozzarella, and tomatoes (plus kale for a surprise veggie boost). Baked until golden and crisp, this recipe’s got all the personality of classic lasagna—but with no assembly required.

Instructions
1

Wash and dry all produce. Heat broiler to high. Bring a large pot of water with a large pinch of salt to a 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

2

Add fusilli to boiling water and cook until al dente, 9-11 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reserve ½ 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, tossing, until softened, 4-5 minutes.

3

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 any excess grease left by beef.

4

Return pan to heat and add kale. Cook, tossing, until wilted, 4-5 minutes. (TIP: Add a splash of water if you’re having trouble getting leaves to wilt.) Season with salt and pepper.

5

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 your pan isn’t ovenproof, transfer mixture to a small, lightly oiled baking dish at this point.

6

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.
