I suppose you could also call this poor man’s lasagna.Perhaps.But, skillet lasagna seems to be the pervading moniker for it.Poor man’s anything seems to be a slight, if anything.
I recall one day, many years ago reading that the Scottish band Trashcan Sinatras were a poor man’s The Smiths.Sounded just a tad mean.They sound perfectly well in their own right, and this skillet lasagna is tasty in its on right, too.
We can listen to some Trashcans as we make this dish, won’t that just be an added pleasure to what will already be a pleasurable night?
I gather you may be getting ab it antsy about starting this , or maybe you are just sick of my ramble and just want the god damned recipe.Fine, I can’t win with you,here is the recipe.Excuse me for trying to make you just a bit more civilized.
- 10 Lasagna pieces, broken up into shards.
- 3 and a half cups of vegetable stock.
- 4 cups of washed and fresh spinach.
- 1 tomato, chopped, diced, whatever.
- 1 teaspoon of sage.
- 3 teaspoons of thyme.
- 4 teaspoons of basil.
- 1 small can of tomato sauce.
- Half a cup of Cheddar Daiya.
- Half a cup of Mozza Daiya.
- Salt and pepper to taste.
You may have noticed by the the title of this post, this is skillet lasagna.You know what that means? Yes, oh you are a clever one, you will need a skillet.On medium heat, bring the stock to a boil, and once it has, add your pasta.Cook for 4 minutes, then lower the heat to low.Throw in your spinach, thyme, sage, basil, tomatoes, and mix well.Cook on low for a couple minutes, then add the tomato sauce.Again, mix that well.
Alright, mix the two flavors of Daiya, and then lovingly sprinkle the top with the cheese.Let it sit on top for a couple of minutes, then
I shall end with another Trashcan Sinatras song.Why? Because I can.
