Skillet Lasagna

If you have been following my blog, then you know I like to post recipes that are quick and easy for the most part, catering to the guys and gals that live a busy lifestyle, mainly because I do. Here is another quick one, and it’s a good one. I made this for my kids, and they loved it! It’s a simple, yet tasty weekday dinner, sure to please a crowd….

What you’ll need:

  • 1 pound Italian sausage
  • 1 (23 oz) jar of Marinara sauce
  • I zucchini, sliced and halved
  • 8 lasagna strips
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 8 oz ricotta cheese
  • fresh parmesan, grated
  • fresh parsley

Heat 2 pots with water. Boil the Italian sausage in one pot until they are hard enough to slice. Add salt to the other pot and boil the lasagna strips until they are soft enough to cut (don’t cook them until they’re all the way done).

Slice the Italian sausage and add to heated skillet together with the zucchini and 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Sauté for 5 minutes over medium heat. Add the Marinara sauce, bring to a boil, then lower the heat to simmer.

Cut the lasagna strips into 3 pieces per strip and add them to the pan. Cover the pan and simmer for 5 minutes. Add sizable spoonfuls of ricotta cheese to the pan, then cover each one with a thick slice of fresh mozzarella. Cover the skillet and simmer for another 5 minutes. Add fresh parsley and parmesan cheese. Be sure the lasagna strips are cooked well, then serve immediately!

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
