How to Make Kale Tomato Skillet Lasagna
Start out your dish by sautéing onions and garlic. Recently I was introduced to frozen, pre-chopped onions. This may not be for everyone but I hate chopping onions so having those on hand has made my life that much easier.
Once your onions are cooked then you brown the ground beef, if you’re more of a sausage person you could swap ground beef for sausage. I however prefer the ground beef. Add in the oregano. Once the ground beef is cooked you will drain the grease and set the beef aside.
Next you’ll want to cook the chopped kale until it wilts. Add in a splash of water if the kale isn’t cooking down. Then you’ll want to add in chopped tomatoes and cook until the tomatoes begin to break down. Add about ¼ cup water if you feel it needs more liquid.
While the ground beef is browning, cook the pasta according to package directions and drain.
Then mix your pasta in with the ground beef mixture and mix in 4 ounces of fresh mozzarella torn into small pieces.
Top the pasta dish with the remaining mozzarella cheese and put in the oven under broil for 3-5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
Use any pasta shape you’d like. Banza pasta works great too if you’re looking for gluten free.
