So last Thursday we decided to try a new twist on a favorite. We made mini lasagnas! The original recipe and post can be found here http://www.catchingfireflies.com/blog/2012/06/mighty-tasty-mini-lasagnas/ from "Catching Fireflies". We were a little wary of the wonton wrappers as noodles, but we had nothing to worry about; they were great.
So we cranked up the 80's Pop Hits Pandora station (which finally played When Doves Cry for me...so happy) and got to work!
First, we gathered our ingredients. Pretty basic, but really even less ingredients than regular lasagna. Just won ton wrappers, mozzarella, parmasean, ricotta, sauce, and whatever seasonings you want.
Then press the won ton wrappers into a greased muffin tin, fill with sauce, cheeses, and seasonings...
Repeat, then top with a little extra cheese (unless you're June!). We only did two layers and it was just right.
Why is it that someone's always making faces behind someone else? We also need more aprons so that I'm not always the weird one...
Bake in the oven till the cheese is bubbly and the edges are crispy.
Pictured below, our finished results admire their predecessors on the original blog from Catching Fireflies.
These were awesome! We each ate about three. The crispy edges were divine. We also loved that you can pick them up with your hands and eat them like barbarians. The recipe is great because you can make just how many you need, and you can adjust it to taste. We made all cheese, but you could certainly add veggies, meat, or meat substitute to make it different! And since each person gets their own, no one will complain.
Next time....a pinteresting breakfast for dinner :)
