Skillet Lasagna

My husband loves this dish. It's easy, and helps promote the milk, cheese and beef products we produce on our farm. It makes a super supper. —Lucinda Walker, Somerset, Pennsylvania

    Excellent recipe. I used fresh mushrooms in the sauce, added some red pepper flakes and that was it. Lots left over for tomorrow night.

    This was very good. I used fresh mushrooms instead of sauce with mushrooms. I will make this again. I will try adding ricotta to see how that tastes. Overall tasty and family enjoyed it!

    My family enjoyed this dish especially my 13-month-old son. The seasonings can easily be varied to suit your personal tastes. Of course, with cooking the lasagna noodles and cutting up the vegetables, this dish took me longer to make than 65 minutes. I will make it again, but probably not very often due to the amount of work and time it requires.
