Just like a traditional lasagna, but without all the fuss!

No-fuss dinners are the best dinners. This one-pan skillet lasagna is as no-fuss as it gets. It’s made in one pot, and it takes less than 30 minutes to cook. You can enjoy your favorite pasta dish without all the work it usually entails. This lasagna may not look like a traditional lasagna, but it has all the same ingredients and all the same flavors. It’s saucy, cheesy, and meaty. Plus, it’s even healthier than traditional lasagna. We used whole-wheat pasta and lean ground turkey, so you’ll get plenty of protein and fiber. We also used low-fat cheese, to cut down on the calorie count. Enjoy this easy meal guilt free!

  1. I have a question – when you say 3 cups of pasta – does that mean 24oz? One 14.5oz box of pasta measures to be 4Cups. This always confused me.

    1. Amy, We actually used 3 cups of the pasta…had a cup left over for another recipe. Feel free to use the whole box! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Is it possible to do this in the oven? I work in a group home and we are always looking for healthy, easy recipes as we are cooking for 24 people!

    1. Lauren, It’s delicious in the oven as well. I recommend cooking the pasta then adding the ingredients. Just follow the directions of cooking most oven backed lasagna recipes. ๐Ÿ™‚
