Why I Love This Recipe
Who doesn't love a good lasagna? Making an entire one can be a hassle and requires a full-size oven so here's a recipe for a single serving portion for late-night study sessions. Note: All of the cheeses in the recipe can be interchanged for your own personal favorites and make sure to use a slightly larger mug for this recipe.
Recipe Joke: A boy and his father are eating lasagna at the dinner table...
The father says ''Make sure to lean over your plate, son.''
The boy asks ''But why?''
The father replies with ’'So, you'll get less-on-ya''
Ingredients You'll Need
2 pasta lasagna sheets
¾ cup (6floz/180g) water
1 teaspoon olive oil
3 tablespoons pizza sauce
4 tablespoons ricotta cheese
3 tablespoons uncooked spinach (optional)
2 tablespoons cooked sausage (optional)
1 tablespoon grated cheddar cheese
Roughly break the pasta sheets and place in a large microwavable mug.
Cover with water and olive oil. The olive oil stops the lasagna from sticking together while cooking.
Microwave for 3-4 min or until the pasta is tender. Check on it halfway through and stir.
Once cooked drain away from the cooking water and remove the pasta from the mug.
Add 1 tablespoon pizza sauce and spread on the bottom of your mug.
Then do a layer of pasta, a layer of spinach(optional), sausage (optional), and ricotta.
Repeat the layers all the way to the top of the mug.
Once you get to the top sprinkle grated cheddar on top.
Place in the microwave and cook for 2 1/2 - 3 minutes or until the lasagna is heated through. (Cooking time is based on my 1200W microwave so your timing might vary) Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook.
Let cool for a couple minutes and enjoy!
