A delicious low carb lasagna made right in your air fryer. So much flavor and ready to eat in no time at all!
You are going to love this Air Fryer Lasagna from Urvashi Pitre’s new cookbook “Every Day Easy Air Fryer, 100 Recipes Bursting with Flavor.” Urvashi is the blogger behind the popular blog Two Sleevers.
Once again, Just like in my previous post on Pumpkin Curry Soup, this cookbook has amazing photos. I love to look at beautiful food photos!
A lasagna is not something I would normally make in an Air Fryer…but I think this recipe, and Air Fryers in general, are perfect for people who like to cook, but don’t have access to an oven. I’m thinking this would be especially helpful for a young adult in college or older individuals.
To get started with this Air Fryer Lasagna, mix ground beef with marinara, celery, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Smooth out the top and place in the air fryer. cook at 375F for 10 minutes or until an internal meat thermometer reads 160F.

Now we need to mix together the ingredients for the topping. This includes ricotta, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese, eggs, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder. Spread that on top of the meat mixture and cook for 10 minutes more.
The lasagna gets browned and bubbly and is packed with flavor. I hope you pick up the cookbook because it is filled with scrumptious recipes. There are lots that are low carb!
