Easy Skillet Lasagna – I love a one pot dish!  This is a crowd pleaser and so simple to whip up for a weeknight dinner!  Simple ingredients, easy prep and ready in under 30 minutes.  All the comforting flavors of traditional lasagna without the mess and tedious preparation.  I rarely make lasagna, simply because of the time and effort required.  Maybe I’m lacking patience, but for me, it usually turns into a mess of layered cheese and torn noodles…so no, not a fan!

This recipe contains a fraction of the amount of cheese in a typical baked lasagna.  I went with the full fat ricotta but only used about one quarter of a 15 oz. container!  I used ground beef because it’s what I had on hand, but ground turkey or a even a combination of both would be equally good.

This was the perfect amount for our family of four, with leftovers for lunch the next day.  Yum Yum.
