Lasagna in a pan… say WHAT? I dare you to find a faster way to make this Italian classic. Ready within 30 minutes, I’m thinking my Crock-Pot Vegetable Lasagna has finally met its match.
It seems like I’ve been on a streak of sweets, cheese and carbs… and okay, maybe I have. But these long and cold winter days are getting old and I need something to warm my bones! Are you with me?!
I’ll warn you now… while the “one pan” is appealing, it makes it almost impossible to stir the lasagna without getting it all over your stove. Make slowwww, deliberate folds with your spoon!
With warmer weeks ahead of us (oh, I hope so!) there will be plenty of healthy recipes posted to Fancy Fork… with the occasional cookie recipe or maybe seasonal fudge because I have absolutely no self control. 🙂
I hope you enjoy this super duper, easy peasy 30 minute skillet lasagna! I’m sure Rachel Ray would be proud!
