Today I am SO EXCITED to share this amazing 21 Day Fix lasagna skillet recipe with you. I love to try recipes firsthand before sharing them. I must say that THIS.WAS.AMAZING!!! I am a HUGE lover of lasagna, but I don’t eat it very often because heavy carb meals make me feel really exhausted. I saw a recipe for this on Pinterest, had to alter it a bit for my picky hubby, and he even really loved it! 🙂
So where are my lasagna lovers at?! This recipe didn’t have many carbs in it, only 2 cups of rice for the entire recipe. The recipe has 4 servings, so there’s only ONE yellow container in each serving! And the servings are SO BIG! Big servings are my happy place. 😀 The cheesy gooey-ness is just amazing. When you make it, be sure to invite me over to dinner. 😉
For my 21 Day Fixers, here are your container amounts:
1 yellow container (rice)
1 red container (sausage)
1 blue container (cheese!!!)
1/2 purple container (marinara)
1 teaspoon (olive oil)
*The seasonings and basil are “free”*
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add 2 teaspoons of the olive oil.
Add the ground turkey sausage to the skillet and season with salt and pepper. As it cooks, break up into small pieces. Cook until browned, then drain any excess grease from the meat. Place the cooked meat onto a separate plate.
Add the other 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the skillet and add the garlic. Cook, stirring, until garlic has softened a bit. Approx 3-5 minutes.
Add the turkey sausage back in with the garlic, and add the oregano and italian seasoning, stirring until combined.
Add marinara sauce. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a light simmer. Allow the sauce and meat to simmer for about 10 minutes.
Season your rice with salt and pepper. Do not skip this step or it’ll make for a bland dish. 🙂
Add the rice to the sauce and meat mixture. Stir until thoroughly combined.
Top with mozzarella cheese and place skillet into the oven on a low temperature broil. The goal is just to melt the cheese on top!
Remove from the oven once cheese has melted and add dollops of the ricotta cheese before serving.
