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.

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.

Recipe Tip

Use a deep skillet with a tight fitting lid. This will allow space for noodles to cook properly and absorb the liquid.

Cranberry Swirl Sweet Rolls
November 24, 2015 by Mallory

One of my favorite parts of the Thanksgiving meal is my husband’s homemade cranberry sauce. It’s a tart and sweet sauce, with hints of orange zest and brown sugar. I always have him make twice the amount needed because I love having leftovers. This year, I decided that rather than serving it alongside leftover turkey and mashed potatoes, I was going to try something new.
