Skillet Lasagna

The Pampered Chef 29 Minutes to Dinner

This is really yummy and just doesn't take quite as long as regular lasagna.

1 jar marinara sauce
3 C water
8 oz. lasagna noodles
1 lb. hot Italian turkey sausage, casings removed
2 garlic cloves, pressed
2 oz. parmesan cheese
2 T chopped fresh parsley, divided
1 C fresh whole milk ricotta cheese
1/2 C shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 t coarsely ground black pepper
additional grated parmesan

Combine sauce and water in 12-in. skillet. Cover; bring to a boil.

Meanwhile, wrap noodles in a clean kitchen towel and break crosswise into quarters. Stir noodles into sauce. Cover; reduce heat and simmer 16 - 18 minutes or until noodles are tender, stirring occasionally.

As noodles cook, place sausage into 10-in. skillet; cook and stir over medium-high heat 6 - 8 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink, breaking into crumbles. Add pressed garlic; cook one minute. Remove from heat. Stir sausage into noodles and sauce.

Meanwhile, grate parmesan cheese. Combine cheeses, 1 T parsley, and pepper in a bowl. Scoop cheese mixture over noodles. Cover skillet and simmer gently 3 - 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and ricotta mixture is heated through.

To serve, sprinkle lasagna with remaining tablespoon parsley and additional parmesan if desired.
