Equipment

  • 12 inch skillet

Ingredients
  

  • 1 package Mostly Made Lasagna Filling See article for where to find
  • 3 cups Dry Penne Pasta I substituted macaroni noodles. It worked.
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup crushed tomatoes I used diced and added an extra half cup because I like tomatoes
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella I used taco cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Instructions
 

  • In a 12" skillet with lid, add Lasagna Filling, 1 cup of water, and 1 cup crushed tomatoes. Stir to combine over low heat. (I searched the recipe and the package to see if I should have thawed the lasagna filling before dropping it like a brick into the skillet. I couldn't find directions, but since it was not pre-thawed, I went with the brick and it thawed quickly without trouble).
  • Once the filling is hot, add 3 cups dry pasta and stir together, cover & simmer until pasta is al dente. Stir as needed. The directions suggested you may need to add a 1/4 cup of water, but since I had added extra tomatoes, I didn't need to do this.
  • Sprinkle 1 cup of mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup of Parmesan on top. Cover and continue to simmer on low heat until the cheese is melted, about 3 minutes.
