For whatever reason, lasagna doesn’t speak to me. I know, all those layers of meat, cheese and sauce, what’s not to love, right? Yet when I see a heaping plate of lasagna… nothing happens. No craving, no swooning, nothing.
On the other hand, lasagna fake-out dishes really get me going. Why faux-sagna and not the real deal? I have no idea. Maybe it’s my eager-to-eat subconscious knowing I don’t have the patience for “real” lasagna. Maybe it's the traumatic experience of finding hidden mushrooms in the pasta layers. (Mushrooms? In lasagna? Not cool.) Who knows. Anyway, in my opinion, the fake stuff is where it's at.
Naturally, when I came across this Skillet Lasagna at How Sweet it Is, I saved it with the intention of making it as soon as possible. Which I did. And I swear, I heard the Hallelujah Chorus when I took it out of the oven. Or maybe that was just my stomach.
Anyhow, you should make this. I swear you won’t be disappointed.
