I remember that this time of year was always crazy-busy for my mom . . . at one point, she had 5 of us 6 girls all involved in a city soccer league and it seemed like her evenings consisted of driving us around to our different games and practices. Then there were piano lessons, end-of-year school programs, tumbling . . . the list goes on and on! Now that my kids are getting a little older, our schedules are filling up and dinner quickly becomes a low priority. Sometimes you just need something that you can throw together in a matter of minutes! And when the weather is this beautiful, who wants to spend time slaving over a hot oven?
20 Minute Skillet Lasagna Recipe
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 (12 oz) package bow tie noodles (or any other kind of noodle), uncooked
- 1 (26 oz) jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce (or pizza sauce)
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning (or more, make it to your taste)
- ½ cups Mozzarella cheese
- ½ cups sour cream (I used light)
Brown ground beef in small pan. Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions.
After noodles are cooked, drain and drizzle with olive oil. Mix in your spaghetti sauce.
Add your browned beef, seasonings, cheese, and sour cream. Fold together and allow it all to combine and melt together, over low heat, for about 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Serve with a simple green salad and loaf of French bread and you have a quick and delicious meal!
