Saturday Stirrings – Saucy Skillet Lasagna

Posted by Carol on August 1, 2009

If you want an authentic lasagna recipe, here’s the recipe directly from my 100% Italian Grandmother. If you want a recipe that you can throw together in one skillet while your just-moved-into kitchen is still a mess. This one’s for you.

Saucy Skillet Lasagna

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 (26 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes, slightly drained
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese (can use cottage cheese if you’re not really Italian)
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 (9 ounce) package no-boil lasagna noodles
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. Cook ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until browned and crumbly. Drain well.
  2. Add half the jarred spaghetti sauce to ground beef in skillet and mix well. Pour diced tomatoes evenly over ground beef.
  3. Combine ricotta and egg in a small bowl and mix well. Spread evenly over tomatoes. Top with a layer of lasagna noodles.
  4. Layer the remaining spaghetti sauce and remaining lasagna noodles in the skillet.
  5. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, covered, until lasagna is tender, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with mozzarella. Cook, covered, for 2 minutes. Serve immediately.

And speaking of moving, Saturday Stirrings has moved back to its original home at DeeDee’s blog FiddleDeeDee!

    Sounds delicious! We’ll be going camping for 2 weeks and this sounds like something I might even be able to make ahead and put in individual containers to reheat while on the road.
