Skillet Lasagna — Meatless Monday

by in Recipes, January 30th, 2012


While some lasagna recipes require Bolognese and bechamel sauces, multiple pots and pans and a few hours in the oven, this one calls for just a single sauce and only 20-25 minutes on the stove. No-bake lasagna noodles are nestled between layers of fresh tomato sauce, sliced vegetables and creamy ricotta cheese, becoming soft as they cook in the skillet and absorb moisture.

Continue with the Italian-inspired dishes and round out your dinner with Giada’s Mixed Green Salad With Sherry Vinaigrette and Rachael’s easy, cheesy Garlic Bread, ready in fewer than 10 minutes.
