How To Make Skillet Lasagna
I start this recipe by browning Italian Sausage. You could use ground beef, pork, chicken or turkey. You could also omit the meat for a vegetarian option. Once the sausage has browned and crumbled pour in your favorite tomato sauce.
The sauce will need to simmer for just a few minutes before you add in the tortellini. Tortellini takes minutes to cook to al dente, making it perfect for quick meals.
In a bowl, I combine ricotta cheese, an egg, grated Parmesan and Mozzarella cheeses and dollop the mixture over the pasta. The cheese mixture adds the right amount of creaminess to this dish, much like you would find in traditional lasagna!
Skillet Lasagna with Bowtie Pasta?
This is a versatile recipe and there are substitutions that can be made. Above, I mentioned different meat options, but there are other variations to this recipe.
-This recipe calls for cheese filled tortellini, but any time of tortellini will do.
-Tortellini not your favorite? Use bowtie pasta, egg noodles, campanelle, or any other curly pasta.
-The dish would be great with the addition of vegetables like zucchini or spinach.
-Cottage cheese can be used in place of ricotta cheese.
