Skillet Lasagna

How are you doing today? We have been on a marathon painting spree here. For our friends who were wondering how long it would take us to change the paint color on the first floor, it was 149 days. With my track record, I'm feeling pretty good about waiting 149 days! Wait until you see what we painted! I'll give you a two hints...slept on it and two rooms to go! Hope to pull the finishing touches together this weekend!

A big thank you to Lindsey at Better After for featuring our bedroom! Haven't found the perfect dresser lamp yet, but still working on it. We also decided that we are going to sell the chairs (ketchup and mustard) on Craig's list and hopefully have enough to buy new ones. At least that's the plan. I am trying really hard to stay on track and complete a project (room).  One of my many down falls....staying on track.

We also want to welcome our newest followers. I am trying to make my rounds and say hi! We are happy to have you....Welcome!

Another goal of ours is to get back on track with recipes. Tony brought home some fresh berries and tells me he has a surprise for us! Can't wait to see! For today I am pinch hitting with a recipe....hope you don't mind. This is super easy and perfect for a busy night when you are short on time, but don't want to skimp on quality.

Skillet Lasagna

2 cups spaghetti sauce
1/3 cup water
1 package frozen ravioli
1 egg (slightly beaten)
1 15oz carton ricotta cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 10-oz package frozen chopped spinach

Step 1:
Combine spaghetti sauce and water in a large skillet. Bring to boiling. Stir in ravioli. Cook, uncovered over medium heat about 5 minutes or until ravioli are almost tender, stir to prevent sticking.

Step 2:
In a medium bowl, combine egg, ricotta cheese, and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Dot ravioli mixture with spinach and then spoon ricotta mixture on top of spinach. Cook, covered over low heat about 10 minutes more or until ricotta layer is set and pasta is just tender. Sprinkle with additional grated Parmesan.

Served with some garlic bread.....

My kind of cooking...took about 20 minutes!
