Skillet Lasagna That Doesn't Suck!

Find out why skillet lasagna usually sucks and how to fix it.

Sometimes your culinary efforts spawn greatness in the form of flawless food. ⁠

Other times, the sluglike #gnocchi you labored over for two hours, and that looked so perky on the table, dissolve into a mass of floury potato sludge in the pot. Like these little fuckers did. ⁠

PSA: #potatognocchi are a pain in the ass. Switch to #ricottagnocchi and save yourself some rage-y frustration. ⁠

Mise for the absolutely EPIC #pastaprimavera video coming up. This dish, done right, is such a beast.

I'm a little tardy to the "skillet lasagna" party, but I'm also kind of pissed about the whole idea.

I mean, how can you expect to make something even APPROACHING the quality of a really good baked lasagna in 30 minutes or fewer on a busy weeknight with no baking?

Certainly most of the existing recipes don't even come close. They're either straight up NOT LASAGNA, like the @PioneerWoman's recipe for “chicken skillet lasagna” that I pick apart in my video, or they're a poor substitute, missing tons of the stuff that you crave when you crave lasagna.

But shockingly, and against all odds and my own expectations, we managed to cobble together a skillet version of lasagna that actually tastes almost exactly as it should and can still be done in 30 minutes.

And we filmed it live with a timer so you know I'm not bullshitting you, like so many other of these folks do.

Link to the video is in the bio.

Happy cooking!

Doing Some Good

We’re well aware that lots, if not most of the stuff on this blog is really only accessible or affordable to a certain group of folks, and that the vast majority of folks out there struggle just to make ends meet and put ANY kind of food on their family’s table. To try and do what we can to help, we sponsor a different food-oriented charity every month. We research our charitable choices pretty deeply, as we want our dollars to go where they can help the most.

Right now, these contributions are made by Wobbles and Zesty themselves, but the goal is to have part of any proceeds made by this site, Youtube channel, etc. go to charity.

This Month’s Charity

The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank is an incredible organization committed to fulfilling the basic human need of having enough food to underserved communities in the Pittsburgh Area.  We picked it as our first charity to support because of the demonstrable good it has done our own community. We were especially impressed with how quickly the charity adapted and provided for a much broader group of people during the initial shock of the Covid19 crisis.
