To live life without friends would be dull and unexciting.
My friends make me laugh and we are there for each other during good times and bad. It’s been hard with a new baby and the demands of being a work at home mom to find time to cook.
Since time is a luxury I don’t have, meals that are quick, tasty and fun make the top of my meal list. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate National Friendship Day than by enjoying Texas Style Skillet Lasagna with friends and family!
Born and raised in Texas, I have been told numerous times that Texans are some of the friendliest people. The food we serve should be the same.
Meals bring people together.
The Texas-style pasta is the perfect base for the classic skillet Lasagna dish. It’s a great conversation starter to kick start the fun!
