Sometimes I over complicate things. Sometimes I really, REALLY over complicating things when it comes to food. I want simple but then I end up making elaborate food because I feel like if it’s super simple that it’s not worthy of lunch or dinner.
Like traditional lasagna, I over complicate it sometimes and it’s such a simple dish! Simple yet so good!
I’ll over complicate things until I actually make something like this skillet lasagna that is both easy and delicious………………that’s when I start kicking myself in the rear and wondering why I don’t make meals like this more often!
I’ve told you before that BigBear’s first question when he gets off of work is always “What’s for dinner?”
Normally I answer with “I don’t know” and then start to search for quick weeknight meals before dashing to the store or I end up making something up at home.
However when he came home from work Saturday and asked “What’s for lunch?” (he only works a half day on Saturday), I was more than proud to point at the skillet on the stove and announce that lunch was ready!
So for this Skillet Lasagna you’ll need:
Heat large skillet over medium-high heat.Add sausage and onion; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until sausage is crumbled and onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Drain
Add un-drained tomatoes & tomato paste.
Add 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese.
Add cooked pasta to skillet.
Stir to combine.
Dollop spoonfuls of ricotta mixture on top of pasta mixture. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese.
Reduce heat to low; cover and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until ricotta mixture is hot and mozzarella cheese melts.
In about 30 minutes you’ll have dinner (or lunch) ready to hit the table!
I’ve pretty much been buying diced tomatoes in a can since I started to cook. Only recently did I start making tomato sauce from scratch. Now while I do occasionally still make it from scratch I always have diced/canned tomatoes in my pantry!
While I also switch from brands to brands, I always find myself coming back to Hunts because it’s the brand I know and love.
Hunt’s® cans each tomato for the diced, stewed, and whole varieties within hours of picking it from the field, and uses FlashSteam® (a proprietary, natural peeling method using steam from hot water) to peel the tomatoes! Their tomato are 100% natural and have no artificial preservatives!
