I manage to dirty a lot of dishes when I cook. It really looks like a tornado hit by the time I’m done.
This meal is a different story, I only had to use one skillet. I did use a small cutting board for the fresh basil, but that’s it! It’s an easy, yummy meal with minimal clean up. You can’t beat that!
Easy clean up and it’s a quick meal. Two of my favorite things! I’m always looking for meals like this during the week when I’m working and running the kids around.
This Skillet Lasagna uses ground beef – not turkey!
It also has pasta! And to top it all off is the mozzarella cheese. Yum! These are some of my favorite things.
Nothing about this dish says diet food. The whole family ate this and there were no complaints.

Is 32 1/2 oz cans correct for tomato sauce?

This was delicious! The perfect blend of spices and so easy to prepare on a busy weeknight. I did add one cup of water to make it extra saucy (perfect for us) and added one cup of fat free cottage cheese after the simmering was finished. I will be making this again for sure! Thanks!

what is a serving size?

I would suggest cooking the pasta before mixing it in. Came out a little too chewy after 15 minutes and the sauce had started to evaporate which prevented me from cooking it much longer.

How did you calculate points? When I put this in the builder it comes out to like 12 points per serving?

Omg. It was the most delicious skillet lasagna I have ever tried. I made a few changes. I used 1 1/2lbs ground beef, a little extra bow tie pasta and crushed tomatoes instead of tomato sauce. It was definitely a keeper.
