30 Minute Skillet Lasagna is a quick and easy meal that tastes delicious and can be made in one skillet.
Who struggles with the age-old question, “What’s for dinner”? I know I do! After a long day of work, the last thing that I want to do is spend an hour in the kitchen preparing a meal.
I’ve been looking for recipes that I can prepare quickly, yet are still delicious, and my latest kitchen experiment, 30 Minute Skillet Lasagna, fits both criteria.
My mom was a teacher and she managed to prepare a home cooked meal every single night. I truly don’t know how she did it. When she made pasta sauce, it was made using her home-canned tomatoes and onion and green peppers from her garden.
On a weekend, I may make pasta the way my mom did, but on a busy weeknight, instead of making my sauce from scratch, I rely on help from the grocery store. My skillet lasagna uses bottled spaghetti sauce, not as good as homemade, but good enough.
My 30 minute Skillet Lasagna starts with a base of ground beef, onion, and garlic. After the ground beef mixture has cooked, pasta sauce, egg noodles, and water are added to the pan. After 10 minutes, the pasta has cooked and is topped with Ricotta and cheese. The pan is covered, and after 5 minutes, the cheese is melted and this dish is ready to be enjoyed.
We love this recipe and it’s a regular at my house.
