Skillet Lasagna

 ¾ lb lean ground beef
 ½ lb mild Italian sausage (removed from casings)
 1 tbsp Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 1 cup chopped onion
 3 cloves garlic, minced
 25 oz Colavita Strained Tomatoes
 ¼ cup dry red wine, (optional)
 1 cup water (less if you used the wine)
  tsp red pepper flakes, or to taste
 1 tbsp fresh basil
 1 tsp fresh thyme
 Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
 8 oz Colavita Lasagne, broken up
 ½ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
 1 cup low-fat or part-skim ricotta cheese
 2 mozzarella cheese, grated or sliced

In a large 12-inch skillet, with a lid, cook the meats over low heat until just no longer pink. Drain in a sieve, and set-aside.


Wipe out the skillet and then heat the olive oil over medium heat; add the onions and garlic; saute until wilted.


Return the meat to the skillet; add the red pepper flakes and Italian herbs, if using. Mix well.


Pour in the strained tomatoes along with the wine and water; stir then add the pasta, stir.


Cover and lower the heat to medium low, simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.


(After 15 minutes the sauce should still be slightly watery, if not, add a bit more water); cover and cook another 5 minutes or until the pasta is tender.


Uncover the skillet, stir in parmesan cheese; dot the ricotta over the top then sprinkle or layer on the mozzarella.


Cover and allow to stand for 5 minutes, or until the cheese is nicely melted.
