Easy Skillet Lasagna

In one skillet– I repeat, one skillet, you have delicious sauce, cheese and broken noodles. There are a lot of skillet lasagna recipes out there so this isn’t anything groundbreaking, but to amp this up a notch, I add crushed red pepper flakes. It adds a little spice and really brings the tomato sauce to life.

The ricotta cheese adds this creamy texture that helps coat the noodles. Best yet? It only takes 30 minutes! The noodles cook in the tomato sauce and the flavors all come together beautifully.
