One Dish Skillet Lasagna

It's back to school this week in our town.  Which isn't that significant at our house since Little Devil isn't actually that little.  She's a college student so she's pretty self-sufficient.  Long gone are the days where we shuffled work, school, homework, dinner and dance lessons.  But a majority of my friends are facing the "What's for dinner?" dilemma.  This One Dish Skillet Lasagna totally rises to the occasion and helps the back-to-school-hecticness.  It goes together quickly, cooks quickly, it's hearty and filling and best of all, only one pot to clean.  That leaves plenty of time for homework, book reports, baths, bedtime stories, and lunch box packing.  Seriously.  Try it. This is my new favorite busy-night go to recipe. 

So good!  So easy!  And only pot to wash!
Ready in 20 minutes!
I used Italian Sausage, but next time I'm trying ground beef!

One Dish Skillet Lasagna

1 pound Italian Sausage or ground beef
1 (24 ounce) jar marinara sauce
1 (19 ounce) bag frozen cheese tortellini
1 egg, beaten
1 (15 ounce) container Ricotta cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the sausage or ground beef until thoroughly cooked.  Drain any grease off.  Add marinara sauce.  Reduce heat.  Add tortellini and cook about 5 minutes, or until tortellini is almost tender. In a separate bowl combine egg, Ricotta, Parmesan, and Mozzarella cheeses.  Add seasonings and mix well.  Using a cookie scoop, drop scoops of cheese mixture into sauce mixture.  Cover and cook about 5-8 minutes until everything is hot and cheese balls are slightly melted. 

Prep Time:  Approximately 10 minutes     Cook Time:  Approximately 20 minutes
