Good morning! Hope your week is going well. I've been going through some old recipes since it seems like I've been in a rut lately. This Skillet Lasagna was a hit a few years ago and everyone still loved it last night.
Use a 12-inch nonstick skillet with a tight filling lid.
-1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, minced
-3 garlic cloves, minced
-1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
-1 pound ground beef or turkey. (I used 1/2 ground beef, 1/2 sausage)
-1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
-10 curly-edged lasagna noodles, broken into 2-inch lengths
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
-1 cup mozzarella
-1 cup ricotta cheese
-3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add onion and cook until onion begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and pepper flakes and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add ground meat and cook, breaking apart meat, until no longer pink, about 4 minutes. Drain off any grease. Season with salt and pepper.
2. Pour tomatoes with their juices into a 1-quart measuring cup. Add water until mixture measures 1 quart. I also seasoned this mixture with salt, pepper, Italian seasonings and a pinch of sugar.
3. Scatter pasta over meat but do not stir. Pour diced tomato mixture over pasta. Cover and bring to simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender, about 20 minutes.
4. Remove skillet from heat and stir in 1/2 cup Parmesan. Sprinkle on mozzarella. Dot with heaping tablespoons of ricotta, sprinkle with pepper, and cover and let stand off heat for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with basil and remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Serve.
Let me know if you try it!
