I love skillet lasagna. Brown Italian sausage or ground beef in olive oil with chopped onion and garlic in a large skillet. Add mushrooms if you like them and cook for a few more minutes. Add 2 cans of diced tomatoes and whatever herbs you like in your pasta. Add about 1/4 cup of tomato sauce and simmer. Break your lasagna noodles into thirds and cook according to box, drain, and add to skillet. Then add about 1/2 cup of mozzarella, 1/2 cup of ricotta, and 1/2 cup of Parmesan, and stir until it's all melty. And there you go, skillet lasagna!
EDIT: Here is the original recipe. I modified it with meat, and I also use full-fat cheese and don't care about WW points! http://nutritionfor.us/2012/02/eat-skinny-be-skinny-easy-peasy-skillet-lasagna/
sure i made it for supper today for dh
meat sauce has browned hamburger with diced mushrooms, onions, celery and bell peppers. add your choice of pasta sauce. moddle layer between meat sauce layers is cottage & shredded mozza cheese, with diced spinach and onions.
i top with shredded mozza and cheddat, and some dried herbs like italian seasoning.
I don't really have a recipe for it but what I do is I brown 2lbs of ground beef and mix it with a large jar of sauce. I spoon a little sauce into the bottom of my lasagna pan, layer in uncooked lasagna noodles, spoon some of the meat sauce over those noodles, add another layer of noodles, spoon over more sauce, then add the final layer of noodles. Once it's all in the pan I doublecheck that there's plenty of liquid, adding in a little water or tomato sauce if there isn't, then I cover it with foil and bake for about an hour until the noodles are tender. Then I turn off the oven, smother the entire top of the lasagna with shredded mozzarella, and put it back into the still-hot oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese.
I've also done what I call "poor man's lasagna" where I cook egg noodles, mix them with the meat and sauce, spread in the baking dish, top with cheese, and bake until the cheese is bubbly.
in big stew pan, brown italian sausage, and crumble. Remove grease, then add two large cans of diced tomatoes, two large cans of tomato puree, and one large can of tomato sauce. Add basil, oregano, salt, garlic and two chopped onions to taste, let simmer forever. (usually 2-3 hours)
In bowl, mix two eggs, tsp sugar, tsp salt, 1/2 tsp parsley flakes, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, and 15 oz ricotta cheese thoroughly.
Soften noodles in the lasagna pan, put them in there stacked, pour boiling water to cover.
When noodles are soften, drain water. Take out and set aside.
This is when you start your layering..in order. 1/2-3/4 cup sauce, noodle layer, ricotta, sauce again, noodle layer, ricotta, noodle layer, sauce. Stack as high as you wish...til ingredients gone.
Top with 8 oz asiago cheese, 8 oz of mozzarella-- and 1/2 cup parmesan. Sprinkle on some parsley flakes Bake at 350 about 45 min, til cheese is browning and bubbly
