A Lasagna Pasta Skillet is a fun way to get your lasagna fix while changing things up a bit. It’s like a lasagna meets baked ziti skillet, and its out of this world.
I prepared this baked lasagna skillet how I normally would a regular lasagna, but to quicken things up I changed a few things, I used italian sausage, and a jar of marinara already made from a previous batch.
You can go with something off the shelf (I’m a fan of RAOS) if you prefer, but if you’re like me and think nothing beats marinara from home, check out this recipe.
For the cheese, I went with cottage cheese. I know, I know, lasagna purists are cringing, but sometimes you go with what you grew up with.
I grew up with cottage cheese, but if you’re #TeamRicotta by all means my friend, go for it!
So when putting this all together in the oven, I went with a baked ziti style approach, I used a little more sauce, undercooked the pasta a tad, allowing it to finish cooking int he oven and soaking up a little of that extra sauce.
And I’m a HUGE fan of crispy edges in lasagna, so I didn’t want to lose that. Cooking this uncovered at 400F will give you a lovely crunch on the edges of this lasagna pasta skillet.
Baked lasagna ziti? Or is this lasagna pasta? I don’t know, but whatever its called, its GOOOD!
