With summer in full swing, I am always looking for easy meals that don’t require a lot of cleanup. I would say it’s because I want to spend as much time as I can outside, but to be honest, with the heat and humidity by where I live, that would just be a lie. You can instead find me hibernating inside our air-conditioned house and trying to find ways to turn on the oven as little as possible because of the pesky heat.
Lucky for me, this skillet summer vegetable lasagna meets both of the above criteria. The entire dish—pasta cooking and all—is done in one skillet and on the stove. No need to turn on that oven. As an added bonus, this dish is packed full of some of my favorite summer produce. Fresh corn, zucchini and even green beans, all coated in a sauce that doesn’t feel overly heavy. Comforting, but in a summer sort of way.
First, the veggies are cooked in a large skillet just until they start to soften. Broken lasagna noodles are then added in, creating a sort of layer over the vegetables, before being topped with a large can of diced tomatoes and some broth. Another plus for this dish is that you can just add the lasagna noodles to the skillet—no lining them up in nice even layers, as it will all be stirred around as it cooks.
The dish simmers, covered, until the pasta is tender and the sauce thickens up a bit. Once done, be sure to let the lasagna rest before enjoying, just like you would a regular classic baked lasagna. This allows it to firm up and makes it much easier to serve.
