Stovetop skillet lasagna is a simplified version of a family favorite dish, but it tastes just as good!
Stovetop skillet lasagna has all the yummy ingredients and great flavor of traditional lasagna, but it is made with far less steps and hassle.
My family loves this lasagna just as much as the one that I used to make (which took half a day to prep & assemble). This recipe is a keeper!
I made this in a 12′ Circulon skillet that I love, as it has tall sides and plenty of room. I’ve also used Lodge 12-Inch Cast Iron Skillet with excellent results. Any 12″ skillet with tall sides will work great for this recipe.
Note: I used regular lasagna noodles, but no-cook can be used. If using regular pasta, make sure the noodles are fully submerged in the sauce during cooking.
I refer often to Cook’s Illustrated “taste tests” when choosing between various brands at the grocery. Below, I share some of their recommendations for items called for in this recipe.
I hope you and your family enjoy this lasagna. I’d love to hear your thoughts, so please feel free to leave comments. Thanks so much for reading. Be blessed, and stay savvy!
I hope your family enjoys this as much as mine does! I serve this with Pepperidge Farms Cheese and Garlic Bread or crusty French bread and salad. A winning combo!
