Skillet Lasagna

Happy Sunday!  Hope everyone had a good weekend.... we had a "HGTV" project weekend.  Both Mr. John and I did some planting - garden and flowers, he reorganized the garage and built a new workbench, and I painted one of the bedrooms (yeah, I know - not again and when Ms. D comes home, she'll be surprised). I even had time to get groceries and get dinner on the table.  Now back to work rest up, ha!

So the meal - if you like lasagna, but don't have the time to fuss, I really think you will want to try this one.  It is made in one skillet and from start to finish took about 35 minutes.  It also has all the ingredients you would expect and very flavorful!
