This easy skillet lasagna only uses 5 ingredients to make! This one skillet meal is made very common pantry ingredients and the key to a flavorful and delicious meal is the sauce!

Now, there are many jarred sauces to choose and the sauce you choose is based solely on your taste preference! Some like saucy, some like cheesy, and some like their sauces filled with herbs and veggies.

Whatever the sauce you choose, it'll blend well with the noodles, and cheese. This one skillet meal creates a quick and easy comfort meal and one that is great for even the pickiest of children!

Easy Skillet Cheesy Lasagna

I have to admit, I am a huge fan of cheesy lasagna! This lasagna skillet has 2 cups of mozzarella cheese and a half a cup of Parmesan grated cheese. For me, the more cheese, the merrier!

Lasagna Noodles

For this recipe, I use regular sized lasagna noodles. I simple cook them according to the package and then slice them to fit my skillet.

You can also use mafalda (mini lasagna noodles) but they're not a common pantry staple and you're more like to have the lasagna noodles on hand.

Oven Safe Skillet

To get the cheeses melted and bubbly on top, broil it in the oven for just a few minutes. But, to do this, you will need an oven-safe skillet. I prefer to use my cast iron skillet whenever I am cooking a skillet meal and placing it in the oven to broil.
