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.
