Easy Skinny Skillet Lasagna is healthy and takes just 30 minutes in only one pot or one pan – no boiling and even the pasta gets cooked together. Lightened up and healthier – easily customizable with gluten free pasta and protein of your choice.
I am always on the lookout for new dinner ideas and am guessing we could all use a little bit of help in that area too.
So I’ve teamed up with some of my blogging friends to bring you a collection of our favorite 30 minute meals on the first Thursday of every month to give you plenty of inspiration when you’re stuck in a rut!
You’re going to love all the options since there’s something for everyone. Be sure to check out all of their recipe links at the bottom!
With this Skinny Skillet Lasagna you get all the flavors of lasagna without the mess of a bazillion dishes and it’s lighter than a typical lasagna.
No more layering and you can’t beat the convenience of cooking, serving and only having to wash just ONE PAN.
You can also easily customize this dish with your favorite pasta, veggies and protein.
Because we all like having options, I’m showing you a combo of gluten-free brown rice bow-tie pasta and white pasta – they both worked really well in this dish but you may need to adjust the liquid ratio depending on the brand you choose.
Not only is this skillet dish comforting and delicious, we also lightened it up using part-skim mozzarella and fat-free cottage cheese (which I’ve used HERE and HERE) and it still keeps this creamy and delicious without the added guilt!
For the protein, I used extra-lean ground turkey to keep things on the skinny side but you can totally use what you have on hand or keep it a meatless dish with some sliced mushrooms instead.
You guys know I am always trying to sneak in more greens whenever I can so I tossed in some chopped zucchini and spinach.
