Lasagna is one of the most delicious, and most time consuming, pasta dishes around. Boiling the noodles, carefully layering it, and then a nice long wait while it's in the oven make lasagna feel like a labor of love. Sometimes, you just want your food a little more quickly.
This skillet lasagna recipe from Pink Parsley provides the same delicious flavors, but with a lot less effort. This Examiner timed herself while cooking it, and this dish was ready in about an hour, including prep time (i.e. chopping onions, etc).
While you do have to babysit your skillet while it's cooking to prevent the noodles from sticking or clumping, this recipe is still a lot less painstaking than traditional lasagna recipes, making it a much easier (and faster) choice. The best part is that the noodles cook right in the skillet--no boiling them and then trying not to rip the soft noodles while you layer.
This recipe turned out delicious, and the instructions were easy to follow. For that, this recipe earns a 5 star review and a personal recommendation: you should make this. Like, right now!
And since it is February, it might bear mentioning that cooking lasagna for a romantic dinner at home is a great way to avoid the crowds and give Valentine's Day a more personal touch.
