30-Minute Stovetop Lasagna

I think the Tall Boy fell in love with me all over again when I made this 30-Minute Stovetop Lasagna.

Aside from chicken pie, the Tall Boy’s very favorite meal is lasagna. But preparing a traditional version just doesn’t work in our typical work-night timetable.  We have approximately 30 minutes between work and the beginning of karate class, and about 45 minutes between the end of karate class and bedtime.  I need quick and easy dinners, folks.

Needless to say, the Tall Boy has been denied lasagna for dinner for quite some time…until now.

No.  It’s not a traditional version.

But all of the flavors are here – without all of the fuss, work and time.

Believe me, the Tall Boy didn’t mind one bit that I made this on the stovetop rather than in the oven, or that it wasn’t a “pretty” square served up on his plate {I’ll admit, this didn’t hold up well scooping out of the pan – but it was a sacrifice we were willing to make. :-) ).

In fact, his exact words were, “This is awesome.  Now I can have lasagna more often.”

eMeals Mobile App and Slow Cooker Plans

Okay guys, I’m so excited that I had to pop in for a minute just to share a couple of things with you.  You’ve heard me talk before about eMeals and how much I love it – like, seriously, truly love it.  Especially now that we’re at karate 4 nights a week and are adding t-ball to the mix next week.  Can you say stressed out mom?

eMeals Slow Cooker

That’s why I’m so excited about eMeals new slow cooker meal plans!  I’m pretty much in love with my crock pot, so having someone else put together a meal plan and a shopping list for slow cooker meals is kind of like winning the lottery.  And you know what I think is the coolest thing about this plan?  Each Slow Cooker Meal Plan include five slow cooker recipes per week, plus two quick, easy, and inventive meals built on leftovers.

My family is actually using this plan now, and it’s completely awesome.  I don’t have to come up with dinner ideas during our busy weeknights, and our meals are pretty much ready and waiting for us in the evening, with very little prep work required by me.

Score!
