This recipe for Easy Cheesy Skillet Lasagna is one tasty skillet of cheesy goodness.  No, it’s not your typical lasagna with layers, but for a dinner in under 30, it hits the mark!  This recipe is a great base to add in any veggies that are in season or even switch it up by using ground turkey or chicken in place of sausage.  The possibilities are endless, but the result will be delicious.

Skillet Lasagna Recipe Ingredients

  • Ground Spicy Sausage – if you’re not a fan of spicy, feel free to substitute regular ground sausage. You could also use ground beef if that’s what you have on hand.
  • Spaghetti Sauce – if you have homemade sauce in your freezer, this would be a great use for it, if not, the jar from the store will do just fine. Pick your favorite red sauce for this recipe.
  • No-Boil Lasagna Sheets – these are key to this recipe to cook in 30 minutes or less. No-Boil are typically a thinner and flat.
  • Part skim vs whole milk ricotta – you can use either in this recipe, but whole milk will have a richer and creamier texture and taste. Here is a great brand I trust .
  • Mushrooms – I suggest white button mushrooms for this recipe as they will cook well and enhance the dish with a slight mushroom flavor.

How to make Cheesy Skillet Lasagna

Saute the onions until they are translucent. Add the sausage, bell pepper and mushrooms and cook until the meat is no longer pink.
