One Pot Skillet Lasagna: Your favorite cheesy Italian comfort food transformed into an easy weeknight meal. Ready in one pot and less than 30 minutes (even the pasta cooks right in the skillet!).
Growing up, my Mom was a single Mom and worked 40+ hours a week. Because of this, we usually only cooked together on weekends. Our comfort food of choice was cheesy pasta usually lasagna.
I love lasagna, but boiling noodles, simmering sauce ,and a 60+ minute bake time in the oven is not a weeknight friendly meal for my busy schedule.
I decided to give lasagna a remix by making it completely on the stovetop! Enter my One Pot Skillet Lasagna! Even the pasta cooks right in the skillet!
I used Italian sausage in my skillet lasagna, but you can use whatever your family likes best. Ground beef or turkey would also be great! Or leave out the mean entirely for a vegetarian skillet lasagna.
I made my One Pot Skillet Lasagna using Ragu pasta sauce. I love how it’s still made according to founder Aussanta’s high standards. They slowly simmer the sauce to add a rich depth of flavor. Homemade taste with way less effort on our part.
I also love that Ragu sauce has no artificial flavors or colors!
- 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 3 Italian Sausage Links, Casing Removed
- 1 Jar Ragu Marinara Sauce (I used the Parmesan and Romano variety)
- 8 Ounces Farfalle Pasta
- 1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese, Shredded
- ¼ Parmesan Cheese, Grated
- 1 Cup Ricotta Cheese
- 2 Tablespoons Fresh Parsley, Roughly Chopped
- In a large dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Cook Italian sausage until browned around 4-6 minutes. Drain excess fat.
- Stir in Ragu marinara sauce. Bring to a simmer.
- Then stir in pasta and 2 cups of water.
- Bring to a boil. Then cover and reduce heat. Cook for 13-15 minutes or until pasta is done.
- When pasta is cooked, stir in mozzarella and parmesan cheeses. Top with dollops of ricotta. Cover and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
- Serve with fresh parsley if desired.
