Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a food processor, pulse tomatoes until coarsely pureed. In a large deep skillet, bring tomatoes, garlic, and oil to a boil. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce to a simmer and cook on medium until thickened, about 12 minutes (you should have 5 cups marinara sauce).

  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix together egg yolk, ricotta, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

  • Carefully pour sauce into a heatproof bowl and return 3/4 cup to skillet; spread sauce evenly. Add a single layer of noodles, breaking them up to fit. Top with half the ricotta mixture, spreading evenly. Follow with a second layer of noodles, then 1 1/2 cups marinara. Add a third layer of noodles, then remaining ricotta mixture. Follow with a final noodle layer, then remaining sauce. Sprinkle mozzarella and pecorino over top.

  • Bake lasagna until golden and bubbling, 30 to 35 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Cook's Notes

Breaking the lasagna noodles into pieces allows you to arrange them easily and snugly in the skillet without large gaps between them.

I've never done lasagna in a skillet. I'll have to try it BUT I can't use Ricotta because husband hates it. I definitely need to add ground beef and I do a layer of Parmesan, Pepperoni and Provolone.

Some of you are mistaking the skillet for a sauté pan. A sauté pan does not have straight sides. She is using a large skillet with straight sides. It looks to be about 2 and a half to 3 inches deep and about 12 inches in diameter, which works perfectly with this recipe.

That is not a large, deep skillet, it's a saute pan. A 3qt, from the look of it.

Like the idea of "skillet" pasta dishes. Why put into Oven? Not rude, just over 100 degrees outside for past week. Will try a skillet lasagna on top of stove and get back if works or not. Thanks!

What size pan does this recipe require? It just says "a large deep skillet", but in the video she is using a saute pan. I cannot tell the size, but I think the pan size will make a difference in how the lasagna cooks.

This was really easy to make and even better to eat. I added some fresh oregano to the sauce because I had some in the fridge.

You can buy the tomatoes in the can already crushed. This will save even more time.

What do you mean by No Boil Noodles?
