I made this recipe last night in my Ninja multicooker and it was delicious. My family loved it. I followed the recipe, however, I used ground turkey and Italian turkey sausage instead of the meatloaf mix. I also added some bell pepper, a small can of mushrooms and Italian seasoning to it. I cooked it on bake at 300 for about 30 minutes. I added extra water to it so that it wouldn't dry out. At the end I added freshly grated Parmesan and mozzarella and mixed them in. . . added the basil as well.I also mixed in a little bit of the ricotta before I added extra dollops on top. I definitely think this turned out better than the well known name brand found at the store. Will definitely be making this again.
This is a winner!! I love skillet lasagna cuz it's less mess and quicker. Changes: I did use about 1 lb hamburger and 1/3 lb italian sausage cuz that's what I had. Also, used garlic and olive oil diced tomatoes instead of plain. No tomato sauce so 1/4 jar of Ragu w/sauteed garlic and onion. Really, really good. Didn't have the fresh basil. Can't wait to try it w/that! Anything from America's Test Kitchen is worth trying.
I got this recipe from a friend years ago. I make it a lot and its a family pleaser. I do add extra tomato sauce, noodles, Italian seasoning. I also add extra veggies like diced carrots, mushrooms, zucchini, and bell pepper.
I'm so glad that I made a couple of tweaks, or I think this would have been rather bland. I used 3 Italian sausages and 1/2 pound of ground beef (since I didn't have ground pork). I ended up liking the texture of the sausage. I increased the red pepper flakes to 1/2 teaspoon and added one tablespoon of Italian seasoning (my own blend of dried rosemary, marjoram, oregano and parsley that I keep on hand). I felt the mixture was too soupy once I cooked the noodles for an extra ten minutes, so I covered the skillet and carefully drained out the excess liquid. I also added a blend of four cheese (provolone, fontina, asiagno and Parmesan) and broiled it for 3 minutes-- my family loved it!
You really can't mess this up, and can tweak it the way you like it. Great for worknight dinner and always taste great. Fresh Basil and adding mozzerella is definitely better, tho. Thank you.
This was pretty good, and a very kid friendly recipe. I love the fact that I can use those bits of broken pasta, and no one cares, or even notices! I used all ground beef this time, but I'd like to try this with the meatloaf mix. I'd add some italian seasoning next time, and season the meat with salt and pepper as it's browning, but other than that, this is great as written.
this is the best skillet lasagna recipe ever!
This was a great and easy dish! Cooking the noodles with everything else in the skillet created a nice creamy sauce and the ricotta topping brought the true lasagna flavor out. This was a great quick weeknight meal that I will definitely make again - thanks for posting!
I love this, too. I first made when I watched America's Test Kitchen, but I also added mozzarella. Very fast and yummy. Everyone loved it.
This was sooo delicious that my b/f begged me to make it twice in one week~! Thanks for sharing it!
