Skillet Lasagna so easy and DELISH!

Posted by  ·  March 19, 2018  ·  Last Updated: March 19, 2018

Skillet lasagna is a quick and easy dinner idea. Everything in layered into one skillet for a simple way to cook lasagna.  No need to spend hours when you can whip this up in about thirty minutes.  It even has a few veggies hiding inside.  This recipe is great when you don’t want to turn on the oven.  If you have more time and want to fix and forget your lasagna try this crock pot lasagna.  Both recipes are favorites at my house! skillet lasagna

Skillet Lasagna


  • 1 1/4 cups ricotta cheese or cottage cheese I used low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 medium zucchini diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 26-ounce jar pasta sauce
  • 6 oven-ready no boil lasagna noodles


In a medium bowl, mix together the ricotta or cottage cheese, water, salt, basil, oregano, pepper Parmesan, and 1/2 cup of the mozzarella. Set the mixture aside. Brown the beef in a large skillet set over medium-high heat until cooked, about 5 minutes. Drain fat. Add the zucchini. Stir in 2 cups of the pasta sauce. Reduce heat to medium-low. Top the mixture with 2 lasagna noodles, set in the center. Break 2 more noodles each into half  and fill in the edges. Spread the cheese mixture over the noodles.  Break 2 remaining noodles in half each and lay on top. Pour the rest of the sauce into the skillet and spread evenly, then sprinkle on the remaining cup of mozzarella. Cover the skillet and simmer the lasagna over medium-low heat until the noodles are tender, about 20 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat and let the lasagna cool for at least 5 minutes. After about 10 minutes most of the liquid was absorbed. Makes about 6 servings.

    Serve it up with a nice chopped salad like this.

      This is Renee from Total Home Makeover

      I found you at Tip Me Tuesday, and I wanted to introduce myself as a fellow blogger. This recipe looks great! I've made lasagna in a crock pot; but never a skillet.

      Warmly, Renee

      Oh, that sounds tasty, and so much easier than normal homemade lasagna. I'd have to substitute fake meat or extra veggies for the beef, but that's easy enough. Great recipe!

      Thanks! This looks easy and delicious. I love zucchini in my lasagna! I love one dish meals! (Maybe I'll cheat and stir up the cheese/egg mixture in the skillet, too. Haha!)

      Recipe sounds delicious, but where do you get the oven ready noodles? Are those the ones that are in saltwater? Love your napkins and have decided to try them! Sandy in NH
