    Easy Skillet Lasagna

    I don’t know about you but I love a good one pot meal. They are so easy to make and require less dishes. That’s a win-win for me!!

    This skillet lasagna is a take on a traditional lasagna only much easier to make.

    I love lasagna but sometimes (ok a lot of times) the thought of how long it takes to make holds me back.

    You have to boil the noodles, prepare and cheese mixture, and the meat mixture. Then comes the layering followed by a long cook time. Oy!

    I’ve made several one pot pastas in the past so I thought why not with lasagna.

    After several tries, I finally got it right. It takes the right amount of liquid so it doesn’t burn but also not too much that it becomes soup.

    I didn’t find much success using the no boil noodles but the regular curly edged lasagna noodles worked great.

    This easy Skillet Lasagna Recipe is pure comfort food made easier! No time to boil noodles and layer noodles, then this skillet lasagna will make the perfect weeknight meal! #onepotmeal #skilletlasagna

    Ingredients
    • 1 pound (500g) Italian sausage
    • 1 small onion, diced
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 (28oz)(793g) crushed tomatoes
    • 1 (14.5oz)(411g) diced tomatoes
    • 1/2-1 cup (235ml) chicken broth or water
    • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
    • salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes to taste
    • 10 sheets lasagna noodles
    • 1 cup (90g) shredded mozzarella
    • Ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, and fresh basil for topping
    Instructions
    1. In a large skillet brown the Italian sausage and onion until no longer pink and onions are translucent (about 5 minutes). Stir in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. 

    2. Add both cans of tomatoes, chicken broth, Italian seasoning, basil, salt, pepper, and red pepper. Break the lasagna noodles into smallish pieces and stir well to combine. Try to press the noodles into the sauce as much as possible. 

    3. Cover and simmer over medium low to low heat for 15-20 minutes or until noodles are tender. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. (May need to add more chicken broth or water during cooking depending on how well your lid seals)

    4. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese and place large dollops of ricotta cheese on top of lasagna. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes to warm the ricotta through. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese and fresh basil if desired.
