Derek LOVES lasagna. In fact, it is his favorite food. And after 2 1/2 years of marriage I still haven’t made it for him. I guess my excuses have been it takes too much time and cost too much money. This past weekend my friend moved away and gave us a lot of cheese so the first thing I thought of making was lasagna.
I remembered a recipe I have from a ward cookbook for skillet lasagna. I knew it was easy and I had heard it was amazing so I made it. And let me tell you! It was so good! I like lasagna but it isn’t my favorite but this skillet lasagna is really good! And Derek loved it too! And he knows a good lasagna when he tastes one.
The best part is how quick and easy it is to make. This is now one of our favorite recipes!
1 lb ground beef
1 24 oz. can pasta sauce (I just used a jar of pasta sauce)
8 no-cook lasagna noodles, broken into 2 inch pieces
1 cup low-fat ricotta
1 1/4 cup shredded cheese-Italian blend
In large skillet over medium heat, brown meat and drain. Add pasta sauce and 1 1/2 cups of water, bring to a boil. Add noodles and stir. Reduce heat and cook for 10-12 minutes. In a bowl combine ricotta and 1 cup Italian cheese. Drop cheese in mounds around noodles. Sprinkle with remaining Italian cheese. Cover, turn off heat and let sit for 5 minutes.
