Lasagna is one of our favorite dishes. However, unless you put it in the crock pot (which I’ve done, it’s delicious, and will be sharing later), it seems to take forever from prep to layering, and then cooking to the dinner table. This skillet lasagna uses oven ready noodles, your favorite sauce. lot’s of cheese, and a secret ingredient that will have this on your table in 30 minutes or less. Now that is my kind of lasagna!
This is perfect for those nights where you don’t have a lot of time, your questioning take out, and your kids are hungry. Turn on a 30 minute tv show, pull out a fun game, or put them to work in the kitchen with you, and dinner will be ready in no time flat. You’ll be eating something far more healthier than take out, and your family will eat this up.
