To cook all of the ingredients in one pan, a little attention to the ordering of the layers is necessary. It may not look like much as you begin the cooking process, but, after 20 minutes and an occasional stir, a layered lasagna appears almost as if by magic."Variation: Follow the recipe for Skillet Lasagna, substituting 1 pound Italian sausage, removed from it casing, for meatloaf mix. Add 1 chopped red bell pepper to skillet with onion in step 2. Add oregano and basil to tomatoes. Think about burying some of teh noodles in teh meat so the noodles won''t stick to each other and case problems." - literarylass

Skillet Lasagna Preparation
1. Pour tomatoes with their juices into 1 quart liquid measuring cup. Add water until mixture measures 1 quart.
2. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add onion and teaspoon salt and cook until onion begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and pepper flakes and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add ground meat and cook, breaking apart meat, until no longer pink, about 4 minutes.
3. Scatter pasta over meat but do not stir. Pour diced tomatoes with juices and tomatoes with juices and tomato sauce over pasta. Cover and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender, about 20 minutes.
4. Remove skillet from heat and stir in 1/2 cup of Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper. Dot with heaping tablespoons of ricotta, cover, and let stand off heat for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with basil and remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan.
A nice crusty garlic bread and a glass of red wine makes this a fine meal.
