Easy Skillet Lasagna

Whip up a healthy, delicious lasagna without breaking a sweat!

We know what you’re thinking. Making a traditional lasagna is not exactly simple to accomplish on a busy weeknight. Classic lasagna, made by skilled Italian grandmothers across the world, is no easy feat. The crucial ingredients must all be cooked to perfection in separate pots and pans. Bechamel? One pan. Ragu? One pan. Noodles? One pan. Think of the multitasking and the cleanup afterward!

Do yourself a favor and take a look at our recipe for Easy Skillet Lasagna. One skillet. An abundance of delicious ingredients. One great meal. All of that, and none of the back breaking clean up after dinner! After you’ve readied your ingredients in the skillet, finish your dinner in the oven, and you’ve got yourself a lasagna that your friends and family will never guess was this simple to prepare.

And on top of that, this is a healthy lasagna recipe, to boot! We’ve substituted heart healthy ground turkey for beef, veal, and pork. Turkey provides lean protein without the fat, cholesterol, and calories of red meat and pork. We use low fat mozzarella in this recipe as well. You won’t taste the difference, but this cuts down on this meal’s fat and calories, while still delivering that ooey gooey texture you love. Serve this on a weeknight, because it’s that simple. Or serve it for guests, because it’s just that impressive!
