Table of contents
- For a bit of heat, add some red pepper flakes when you add the other spices.
- No Yolks Egg Noodles or other pasta will work fine in this recipe.
- Use a blend of cheddar, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese.
- You can easily use a jar of your favorite marinara sauce instead of tomato sauce and seasonings.
- Instead of ground beef, try ground turkey or ground chicken, or Italian sausage if you prefer.
Either cook the egg noodles before you start browning the meat or while the meat is cooking. Whether you are using egg noodles or another pasta, boil noodles until al dente since they will continue to cook once everything is mixed.
Heat a large skillet, or dutch oven, over medium heat. You may want to add a drizzle of olive oil if you are using very lean ground meat.
Brown the ground beef, crumbling it while it cooks.
When the meat is almost done, add the seasoning and stir well. Cooking the spices for a minute will help release all the flavors.
Next, add the tomato sauce and cream cheese. Cook and stir while the cream cheese melts.
Then, add the sour cream and the cooked egg noodles. Stir well.
Top the skillet lasagna with shredded cheese. Cover the pan and simmer for a few minutes.
Top the finished skillet lasagna with some dried or fresh parsley. Serve!
