You thought lasagna could never be part of your weeknight dinner plan, didn’t you? Get ready to welcome a healthy vegetarian lasagna to your weeknight dinner table, folks. This lasagna was actually ready in 27 minutes, start to finish, but 27 Minute Skillet Lasagna just didn’t have the same ring to it.
I made my first skillet lasagna last summer with fresh tomatoes and it was wonderful. This time I grabbed a jar of organic marinara sauce and it was even easier. I can’t believe I’ve held out this long before showing you how quick and no-fuss lasagna can be. I guess I just figured winter was a better time to showcase a lasagna recipe than summer. Forgive me?
I used these no-boil whole wheat lasagna noodles for this. I’ve not tried this with regular noodles, but you would probably have to boil them first. Not the hugest deal, but I love the minimal effort required with the no-boil noodles. Like I said, lasagna ready in 27 minutes. Minimal ingredients. One pan only. Winner winner weeknight dinner.
This recipe uses spinach, but I’ve done this with other vegetables and it works. Spinach is my favorite, though, so I suggest you go with it! This isn’t as neat and layered as regular lasagna, but who cares?It was definitely a challenge trying to scoop it out of the pan and make it look pretty for a picture. Messy food is delicious food, don’t you agree?Print
