“Easy skillet meal, perfect for a busy weeknight. Serve with salad and garlic bread. This recipe uses oven-ready noodles, for regular noodles, increase water amount to 2 cups and cook for 30 minutes. If you like spinach in your lasagna, you can add 1/2 cup of thawed frozen chopped spinach, with the other veggies.”
