Lasagna Skillet

 

I have a new favorite recipe site. I’ve been pinning recipes like mad from food.com I think it’s a sister site of foodnetwork.com, because I see it linked on the bottom of theirs. You should check it out.. Oh yah, and the greatest part of that website is that they have nutrition info on there too. SCORE!

Lasagna skillet takes less than 30 minutes to make. It’s a lot faster than making the layered lasagna. The noodles cook in the skillet with the water and marinara sauce. There’s only one pan to wash in the end instead of 3 or 5 different ones. You can use your favorite store bought marinara sauce and mine just happens to be Trader Joe’s Roasted Garlic marinara sauce. So good on top of anything. Make this version of lasagna instead, the next time your craving some Italian food. Use different types of sauces and meat to change it up.
