A note about serious food allergies

Ask any cartoon fat cat: Lasagna is one of the most delicious dinners around. But it’s a lot of work: layering all the noodles, making cheese mixtures, and monitoring it carefully in the oven, making sure it doesn't burn. We eliminated much of the work, but none of the flavor, in making this lasagna skillet. Fierce Italian sausage, healthy spinach, and two types of cheese are all mixed in with classic noodles and sauce, resulting in a skillet that's filling enough for the fattest cat around. (But don't give it to him… this is your dinner!)

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using ground beef follow same instruction as Italian sausage in Step 3, adding 1/4 tsp. salt and breaking up meat until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes.

  • If using ground turkey follow same instruction as Italian sausage in Step 3, adding 1/4 tsp. salt and breaking up meat until no pink remains, 7-9 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Break noodles into large chunks.

    Coarsely chop spinach.

    Hold romaine heart at root end and chop coarsely.

    On a separate cutting board, remove Italian sausage from casing.

  2. 2

    Cook the Noodles

    Once water is boiling, add noodles to pot and cook until al dente, 7-9 minutes.

    Drain noodles in a colander and set aside. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean.

    While noodles boil, cook sausage.

  3. 3

    Cook the Sausage

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat.

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil and Italian sausage to hot pan. Stir often, breaking up with a spoon, until no pink remains, 7-9 minutes.

    Remove from burner and transfer sausage to a plate.

  4. 4

    Make Sauce and Broil Lasagna

    Return pot used to cook pasta to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add spinach to hot pot and stir constantly until spinach is wilted, 30-60 seconds.

    Add red cooking wine and cook until liquid is reduced by half, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Stir in marinara, noodles, sausage, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Transfer mixture to prepared casserole dish and place on prepared baking sheet to catch any drips. Top with mozzarella and half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for salad).

    Broil in hot oven until cheese is melted, 2-3 minutes.

  5. 5

    Make Salad and Finish Dish

    In a large mixing bowl, whisk or vigorously stir together balsamic glaze, 1 Tbsp. olive oil, 2 tsp. water, and a pinch of salt.

    Add romaine lettuce, fajita mix, and remaining Parmesan and gently stir to combine.
