Skillet Lasagna with Homemade Power Greens, Flax, Spelt and Whole Wheat Noodles

I saw this amazing looking recipe for a skillet lasagna last week that I really wanted to try.  I had never even heard of making a lasagna in a skillet and it sounded interesting.  That and my boys love pasta and cheese.  So what could be better than Sunday dinner lasagna?  Lasagna combined with homemade noodles, that’s what!

I decided to up the nutrition factor in my noodles by adding in a cup of power greens (baby spinach/kale/chard mix) along with some ground flax seeds.  I did bring in some help to roll out the dough.  Kaiden loves to help in the kitchen, so we had all hands on deck.

I’ve given my pasta recipe below.  I followed the skillet lasagna recipe with some changes: no onion, 1 tbsp olive oil instead of 2, no spinach since I had it in my noodles, 2 garlic cloves instead of 4, added 1 cut up zucchini, used only 1/2 cup of whole milk, organic cottage cheese instead of ricotta and grated marble cheese on top of lasagna. Kaiden enjoyed his lasagna and getting to use his knife for the first time, although Daddy did the cutting.

    Happy November! Until I came across this skillet vegetarian lasagna recipe, I’d never dreamed of making lasagna on the stovetop. I was surprised and skeptical to see that the noodles don’t have to be pre-cooked. I gathered a little faith and followed the recipe directions and sure enough, they cooked perfectly.

    Hi Jessie!

    This looks fabulous! Kev and I have been eating vegetarian for the last little bit. I am finding it challenging to figure out different things to make. Any suggestions would be great of websites or cookbooks etc.
