Skillet Lasagna Recipe By The Cozy Cook

Ever since our Lasagna other recipes came into induction, we’ve been conjuring up other ways to make Lasagna, without actually making lasagna. 😊 And this Skillet Lasagna recipe has every element that Lasagna has, but it’s so much easier to throw together.

It’s got the right balance of seasonings, ground beef/sausage, onions/garlic, tomato sauce, ricotta, and mozzarella. We love using Campanelle pasta, but bowtie or even penne works as well.

Let’s get into everything you need to know. We’ll show you how to make it, and give you substitution options, storage information, and kitchen tools that make this recipe a breeze.

How to Make It Lasagna Skillet Recipe

Brown the ground beef, ground sausage, onions, and garlic in a skillet. Add the seasonings, tomato paste, and flour. Cook for 2 minutes.

Add the beef broth and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer

Aroma Skillet

Mix in the ricotta cheese and simmer gently while you boil the Campanelle or Bowtie pasta. Add the drained pasta and stir to combine.

Lasagna

Top with Mozzarella cheese and transfer to a 500° oven for up to 10 minutes, watch it closely. Remove once the cheese is hot and melted. (If your skillet isn’t oven-safe, transfer to a 9×13 casserole dish prior to baking.)

Pro Tips Lasagna Skillet

  • This recipe uses a combination of ground beef and ground sausage, but all ground beef or all sausage can be used if needed, although we love using both.
  • Sautéed mushrooms make a nice addition to this meal, we like to sauté them until golden in a separate skillet and mix them in at the end when the pasta is added.
  • Chicken broth can be used instead of beef broth if needed.
  • Cottage cheese can be used instead of Ricotta.
  • We love using Campanelle pasta for this recipe but bowtie pasta is a great substitute as well as penne and rigatoni.
  • We use Hunts Tomato Sauce for this recipe.

Storage Lasagna Recipe

  • Store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
