I had another one of those light bulb moments and decided to create another Poco Skillet! I hope my friends on Justapinch will like this delicious Lasagna recipe. There's lots of beef and cheesy goodness to tantalize those taste buds in this scrumptious skillet for two. Add Candles to the table, and Date Night will never be the same! Enjoy.

    FIRST LAYER Add 3 cut noodles on top of the pasta sauce. Two side by side, one across the end.
  • 8
    Spread 1/3 cup of sour cream over the noodles.
  • 9
    Add half of the meat and onions.
  • 10
    Add ¼ cup of pasta sauce.

    TO BAKE Line a small pan with foil and place the skillet on the pan to catch any overflow. Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees until bubbly, then brown under the broiler. Watch carefully so it doesn't burn. Don't overcook. Remove the hot dish by the foil-lined pan, and let it sit a few minutes before serving so it will set. Enjoy!
