Whew…easy skillet lasagna. Can I call this new recipe my most favorite? Like I know that every single recipe that hits this blog is my fave but this one has me head over heels, y’all. It’s like when you ask a parent who their favorite child is and they say all of them but deep down that’s a lie, ha! I’m kidding, I’m kidding.

I found inspiration for this skillet lasagna off the back of a pasta box I had used one day. The recipe called for basic + minimal ingredients that lacked oomph to me so ya girl added her spin on it and jazzed it up some. Nevertheless, here we are with this incredible, easy, and insanely delicious weeknight meal.

  3. Add broth, pasta sauce, and uncooked lasagna pieces into same skillet.Gently stir mixture together.
  4. Cover skillet with a lid and bring to a simmer and allow pasta to cook, about 15-20 minutes. Be sure to stir every 5 minutes.
  5. To make cheese mixture: in a medium bowl; combine ricotta and mozzarella cheeses, chopped parsley, and Italian seasoning. Stir together to fully combine. Spoon cheese mixture directly on top of lasagna mixture.
  6. Top with more shredded mozzarella cheese, if desired.Remove from heat and cover to allow cheese to melt, about 5 minutes. Or for best results, place skillet in the oven to broil for at least 7-10 minutes until cheese is melty, bubbly, and lightly browned.

Notes

1. Feel free to use ground beef or ground turkey as sausage substitute.

2. You can use cottage cheese for a healthier cheese substitute.
