Turkey Skillet Lasagna
This easy lasagna is just as good as the more time consuming baked version! Use Italian sausage rather than ground turkey, if you desire.
20 min.prep time
35 min.total time
1 (20-ounce) package ground turkey
1 large (1 cup) onion, chopped
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh garlic
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3 cups mini lasagna noodles
3/4 cup water
1 (14- to 16-ounce) jar or can pasta sauce
1 (14.5-ounce) can petite diced tomatoes
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil*
8 ounces (2 cups) shredded mozzarella cheese
Place turkey, onion and garlic in 12-inch deep skillet, cook over medium-high heat, 5-6 minutes or until no longer pink. Drain. Stir in Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
Add noodles, water, pasta sauce and tomatoes to meat mixture. Bring to a boil. Cover; reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring once, 5-6 minutes or until noodles are just starting to become tender.
Meanwhile, combine ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese and basil in small bowl; stir until well mixed.
Drop cheese mixture by rounded teaspoonfuls over hot meat mixture. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Cover; continue cooking 5-6 minutes or until noodles are tender and cheese is melted. Uncover; let stand 3 minutes before serving.
*Substitute 2 teaspoons dried basil leaves.
Use a deep skillet with a tight fitting lid. This will allow space for noodles to cook properly and absorb the liquid.
