Easy Skillet Lasagna Recipe

If you are anything like me, you love lasagna but don’t love all the fuss that goes with making it. Nor do I love all the multi-pot cleaning. With that I’m condensing my standby lasagna recipe into a One Skillet Lasagna that comes together in just under an hour.


To start things off you’ll need a good heavy bottom pan. I used my 3.5-Quart Sauté with Lid that’s from the KitchenAid® Tri-Ply Copper 10-Piece Set. This cookware set is everything! I love that the copper gives it unrivaled conductivity, while the aluminum gives it all the heating efficiency, and the stainless steel gives the pans all the durability it needs. What does this all mean for your food? It means food cooks quickly and evenly, and the pans will never warp—you won’t need to replace this set. But my favorite part of this cookware set are the glass tops. They give a quick at-a-glance monitoring, especially important when I’m cooking meals – less lifting equals less loss of heat.


Now about the recipe—about. this. recipe. It’s so easy you won’t believe it. My boys were skeptical that shortcutting the traditional route would result in some loss of flavors and crunchy noodles. I proved them wrong. The noodles softened to the right doneness and the flavor is all packed in there. I think their favorite part was I didn’t throw in any “funky vegetables”. They like their lasagna straight up—meat, cheese and noodles only.

Yay to another winning dish for a fast and easy weeknight meal!

    Hi Naomi, do you think I could make this in a large Dutch oven? I don’t know if I have a skillet with lid big enough but this looks amazing!

    This looks like a good one pot meal but you really should fix the grammar and proof read the recipe. Thanks
