Easy "Lasagna" Skillet Recipe

So, the other day, about noon, I realized that I was going to make something in the slow cooker for dinner but had totally forgotten!! We are not as stocked up as we were before the hurricane (a good thing overall) so there wasn't much to eat for dinner except the old standby pasta... but neither of us really wanted plain pasta. Luckily I had gotten some Philadelphia cooking creme and was able to adapt the Easy Lasagna Skillet recipe to suit what I had on hand. Such as... lasagna noodles with bugs in them! (thankfully my other pasta was fine), no hamburger meat, no peppers and a different flavor cooking cream. OK So I basically created a new recipe! Here ya go...

Sorry for the bad pic
