What is One Pan Lasagna Skillet?

One Pan Lasagna in a Skillet is made up of all the layers and flavors of a traditional lasagna but all combined and cooked in one skillet on the stove. 

No need to boil water for the noodles, no mixing sauces in another bowl. Everything for this lasagna is on one skillet. Then all topped with mozzarella cheese that gets nice and melty. Everything about the original in an easy to make recipe in about 30 minutes.

How to Make One Pan Skillet Lasagna?

This lasagna recipe is made in about 30 minutes and everything goes into one skillet. Easy to make, easy to serve, and easy to clean. Here are the steps:

  • Cook the ground beef through then add the onions and garlic.
  • Add the marinara, water, and salt. Stir all together. 
  • Once it comes to a boil, break up the lasagna noodles and place into the marinara mixture so they are all covered. 
  • Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes.

How to Change Up Skillet Lasagna?

You can make small changes in this recipe to make it your own or depending on what you have on hand. 

  • Meat: Try ground turkey or chicken, ground pork sausage or leave the meat out to make this one a vegetarian meal. 
  • Noodles: I like to use the oven ready noodles but you can use regular lasagna noodles instead. To change it up, try a penne or bowtie too. 
  • Veggies: Add some spinach or chopped carrots with the onions to add a little bit of veggie flavor.
