Easy Skillet Lasagna Recipe. This family dinner dish only takes 30 MINUTES and ONE POT to make! This ultimate comforting and cheesy meal is so much easier than making a conventional lasagna. After you try this version you will never need another lasagna recipe!

Hey y'all. This Easy Skillet Lasagna Recipe is kind of the epitome of the type of recipes I strive to create at House of Yumm. Lasagna is one of those meals that is known for pure comfort. Probably due to the massive amounts of cheese that is usually loaded up into it. Although it's comforting and one of my favorite meals, I don't tend to make it. Why? It takes a lot of time. All the work of layering and do I precook the noodle or not? I never know. When I don't they come out crunchy and just not so pleasant.

This Easy Skillet Lasagna takes all of that away! This dish is the ultimate in comfort food. It comes together in 30 minutes and only takes one pot. Meaning less dishes. And more time enjoying your meal!

This easy skillet lasagna starts with cooking up the ground Italian sausage. I use a mild sausage in mine. You can substitute with ground beef if you prefer, or use a hot sausage if you dare. Once the sausage is almost cooked add in the diced onion. Let it cook together until the sausage is fully cooked and the onion is translucent. Then we can add the minced garlic let it cook for about 30 seconds, then we add in the diced tomato and tomato sauce. I basically used the same sauce that I use when I make my Spaghetti & Meatballs. It's super simple to put together. Onion, garlic, and basil. A winning combination!

I use lasagna noodles when I make this. It feels more authentic and a little fun. Admit it, you like the look of lasagna noodles too! Just break them into pieces over the pot and toss them in. Press the noodles down into the sauce slightly. Cover the pot and let it simmer away for about 20 minutes. Once the noodles are softened your meal is almost done!

Toss in a handful of mozzarella. Or maybe two, or three... The more cheese the better!! This is why we get along :)

Add a scoop of ricotta when you serve it up. A sprinkling of some fresh parsley. And extra cheese. Of course.

This quick and easy lasagna skillet recipe will be one you will want to save and make over and over!
