Skillet Lasagna

Easier and faster than the oven classic!

1 pound lean ground beef
1 can (14-1/2 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1-1/2 cups ricotta cheese
4 cups Italian baking sauce (or just your fave spaghetti sauce works fine)
1 package (9 oz) no-cook lasagna noodles
1 cup (4 oz) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Cook beef over medium heat (in a large skillet) until no longer pink; drain. Transfer to a bowl; stir in can of tomatoes. In another bowl, combine eggs and ricotta cheese. Return 1 cup of the meat mixture to the skillet; spread evenly. Layer with 1 cup ricotta mixture, 1-1/2 cups sauce and half the noodles. Repeat layers. Top with remaining sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes until noodles are tender. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese; let stand for 2 minutes before serving.
