I love stovetop lasagna recipes. They are perfect for busy days when putting together a pan of lasagna just isn’t possible. You get all of those fantastic lasagna flavors in a dish that’s ready in 30 minutes.
A few months ago I posted a recipe for stovetop lasagna. That version is fabulous with its beefy, homemade sauce. Today’s Easy Skillet Lasagna is just as delicious, but lightens things up a bit with turkey sausage and low fat cheeses.
The recipe doubles easily, just upgrade to a dutch oven for more room.
1/2 pound Italian turkey sausage links, casings removed
1 small onion, chopped
14 ounces marinara sauce
2 cups uncooked whole wheat egg noodles
1 cup water
1/2 cup chopped zucchini
1/2 cup fat-free ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1. In a large nonstick skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium heat until no longer pink, breaking up the sausage. Drain.
2. Stir in sauce, noodles, water and zucchini. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 10 minutes or until noodles are tender, stirring occasionally.
3. In a small bowl, combine ricotta cheese, Parmesan and parsley. Drop by tablespoonfuls over pasta mixture then sprinkle with mozzarella. Cook, covered, 3-5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.

Jack Jeffery mentioned that he likes Italian food. That makes today the perfect time to tell you about his latest album ‘Enlightened Horizon’. It’s a musical melting pot with some prog, moody ambient electronica, plucky folk and a bit of psychedelia.
“Our Own Past” is a nice little slice of retro rock, especially with all that mellotron.
