Favorite Skillet Lasagna Recipe

Whole wheat noodles and zucchini pump up nutrition in this delicious, family-friendly dinner. Topped with dollops of ricotta cheese, it has an extra touch of decadence. No one will believe this one’s lighter. —Lorie Miner, Kamas, Utah

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 31, 2014

"To my palate, this is every bit as good as lasagna, but half the work. I still make more traditional lasagna, because it goes further, but this satisfies that hankering when you just don't have time to satisfy it "properly.""
