The recipe for Creamy Skillet Lasagna has been floating around Pinterest for a while now, and I thought I would give it a try using ingredients I had on hand and make it for my husband.
My husband is a huge fan of lasagna, and I am not always willing to take the time to make the sauce, boil the noodles and then assembling it.
I love the recipes that can be adjusted to ingredients your family particularly likes.
What turned me on to this style of cooking lasagna, is that you cook it in a one pot skillet and it can be ready in less than 30 minutes. I love the fact that the uncooked noodles are broken up and cooked with the sauce at the same time. A Win Win recipe!!
Hands down this is one of the best skillet recipes I have ever made. With classic flavors and cheesy layers, this recipe will be made again and again.
Hope you get to make this quick classic recipe soon. Enjoy!
Creamy Skillet Lasagna
- 1 lb. lean ground round (90/10)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoons Gourmet Garden Garlic Blend
1 15 oz. canned diced tomatoes
1 8 oz. canned tomato sauce
2 cups water
16 oz box lasagna noodles
16 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
1-2 tablespoons Gourmet Garden Basil Herb Blend
8 slices soft mozzarella cheese cut in fourths (I buy this at Sam's)
Add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and water. Stir until all is incorporated.
Break noodles in 2-inch pieces and incorporate in sauce. Cover and cook 20 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally to distribute noodles.
Remove from heat and add shredded cheese and Basil Herb Blend. Stir gently to incorporate. Drop soft mozzarella cheese evenly over mixture. Add more Basil Herb Blend if you like to. We liked the basil flavor.
Place skillet under broiler and broil for 3 minutes or until cheese is melted and slightly brown, being sure not leave very long under broiler. It will burn easily.
