Skillet Lasagna

Okay, we found this recipe recently and made it for dinner. It was so good and easy to make. Everything is in one pan so that was nice, too. The only thing we might do is make extra since our family ate it ALL!!!:-) Serve it with a salad and some warm, crusty french bread and Voila!:-)
Skillet Lasagna
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups bow tie pasta, uncooked
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheeseDash basil, pepper
In large skillet, brown beef with onions and garlic; drain. Add tomatoes, water, tomato sauce, parsley, basil, oregano, and salt. Mix well. Stir in uncooked pasta. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; cover, simmer for 20 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring once. Stir in cottage cheese and then mozzarella cheese. Cover with Parmesan cheese, and sprinkle in basil and pepper to taste if desired. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. * we used fresh but you can also use dried chopped onion and garlic. * Strain the cottage cheese before adding it. * We didn't have parsley so we left it out and it was still good Au revoir, Taylor and Jordan
