How to make skillet lasagna
As I mentioned, this stove-top lasagna is made in one pot. So, get your favorite skillet, preferably a large one, and pop it over the stove. Heat a little oil, sauté some onions, and brown your favorite ground meat. Although traditionally, this lasagna is made with a mixture of Italian sausage and ground (minced) beef, you can also make it with ground chicken.
Fry the minced meat until it’s browned, and you get a lovely brown color. Next up, add in tomato paste, diced tomatoes, chopped parsley and garlic powder. And a light sprinkle of dried oregano and red pepper flakes. Don’t forget to season. Give this mixture a quick stir fry.
Now, break the lasagna sheets, and add them to the skillet along with water to cook them. At this stage, you can cover the skillet with a lid, and let the lasagna sheets cook. Turn off the heat, and add a generous sprinkle of mozzarella. Once it melts, add plenty of ricotta to make this skillet lasagna super rich and delicious.
And that’s it, dinner is done! How easy is that! And incredibly delicious too.
