This Hearty Skillet Lasagna recipe is amazing. The only changes I made were that  that I used regular spinach instead of baby spinach and I substituted Crave Brothers Fresh Mozzarella Cheese Medallions instead of the shredded mozzarella. I do love the taste of fresh mozzarella cheese. This recipe was a huge hit with everyone in my family. It is SO much easier than traditional lasagna to make. With the Ninja Cooking System I can brown the meat, cook the noodles, and bake it all in one pot.  Then the pot just lifts out to serve and it’s non stick so cleaning up afterwards takes seconds.

    How would you cook this stovetop? I want to make it for dinner!
    • Ellen Christian says:
      Hmmm. I would probably brown the ground beef in a pan, then transfer it to a casserole dish. Layer everything like I did in the recipe and cover it tightly. I'd guess about 350F for 30 - 40 minutes? You'll probably have to experiment with it. You might want to cook the noodles first too. Not sure if they'd cook properly in the oven or not.

    I love lasagna, but I do not make it to often because I feel it is time consuming.  This recipe looks terrific though and does not seem difficult at all.  I would enjoy trying it in the Ninja Cooking System.

    I love how easy this is...when lasagna usually has many steps in the making.
