I cooked this last night for dinner and it was FABULOUS. Very simple and full of flavor. I chose a pork and hamburger mix since the store did not have meatloaf mix. This is a WINNER!

We really enjoy this recipe. I've made it several times and always comes out tasty and it's fast. I use 1/2 ground beef, 1/2 italian sausage. Having it for dinner tonight. Yum!

I've been intrigued by the idea of skillet lasagna so I gave it a try. It was fun and stress-free! My kids are not lasagna fans but they both ate this. I think it was because it was more "free form" and easy to skip over the ricotta! I was very short on hamb. and used 1 jumbo frozen patty and added some diced zucchini in with the onion (great way to hide it!). I cooked mine a bit longer because my noodles were really al dente. I also added about 3/4 cup mozz. I will definitely make this again- so much easier than lasagna and only one dirty skillet! Thanks Tara- Roxygirl
