Cast Iron Skillet Lasagna

I love love love lasagna! We haven’t been able to find a spot I consider great since moving to Colorado so I decided to make my own! I used my cast iron skillet of course and couldn’t be happier with the results. Okay maybe a touch more sauce, cause I like it saucy, would have been my only change. Can’t wait for y’all to try it and let me know what you think! I used regular-boil lasagna noodles since I personally am not a fan of oven ready. This also cuts the time down to an already very time consuming recipe!

  • 15 oz Ricotta Cheese
  • 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 cup Parmesan Cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375

  2. Cook lasagna noodles as directed on package. I like mine al dente since they will cook a touch more while baking. 

  3. Brown Italian Sausage about 8 minutes.

  4. Add: Garlic cloves, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and pepper. 

  5. Add sauce leaving a small portion in the jar for the first layer. 

  6. While sautéing meat, sauce and spices, add egg and Ricotta cheese to a bowl mixing well. 

  7. Also blend Mozzarella and Parmesan in a separate bowl. 

  8. Remove meat sauce from skillet and put in a separate bowl. 

  9. Now time to layer...

    First layer will be the reserved sauce from the jar.

  10. Add a layer of noodles, I used 4 noodles per layer.

  11. Add a layer of Ricotta cheese,

  12. Add a layer of Cheese blend, 

  13. Add a layer of sauce then repeat..

  14. Noodles, Ricotta, Cheese blend and sauce.

  15. Top the last layer with Noodles, Sauce and Cheese blend.

  16. My lasagna was two layers tall (12 noodles) and the noodles spilled over the edge. I carefully cut the layers to height of my skillet. 

  17. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes. 

  18. After 25 minutes remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes. 

  19. I like my cheese a bit toasted to I broiled on low for about 3 minutes. 

Recipe Notes

I would add tomato paste to increase my sauce next time. You can also add veggies and ground beef to mix it up.
