Microwave Lasagna Recipe - Make it in minutes!

Hi Bold Bakers!

Microwave Lasagna in just a few minutes sounds a bit too good to be true right? Yes, but it is true and so easy to make that I would be doing you an injustice by not sharing it.

No longer will you need to bake large pans of lasagna when you only want dinner for one. And no more washing up like you fed an army. Microwave Lasagna Recipe In A Mug will save you time and save on waste.

Microwave Mug Meals are so much more than just heating up a few ingredients in a mug. They are real meals made with good ingredients that will fuel you throughout your day. They are much better than fast food so I like to think of them as REAL FOOD…FAST!

Servings: 1

Ingredients

  • 2 pasta lasagna sheets
  • ¾ cup (6floz/180g) water
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons pizza sauce
  • 4 tablespoons ricotta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons spinach , uncooked
  • 2 tablespoons cooked sausage , optional
  • 1 tablespoon grated cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • Roughly break the pasta sheets and place in a large microwavable mug.
  • Cover with water and olive oil. The olive oil stops the lasagna sticking together while cooking.
  • Microwave for 3-4 min or until the pasta is tender. Check on it half way through and stir.
  • Once cooked drain away the cooking water and remove the pasta from the mug
  • Add 1 tablespoons pizza sauce and spread on the bottom of your mug.
  • Then do a layer of pasta, layer of spinach, 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!

Recipe Notes

13 SmartPoints
5 PointsPlus
Use a large mug because the water can bubble up in the microwave
They can be mixed up in advance for an even speedier meal
Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug
You can bake them in the oven at 350oF (180oC) for roughly 10-12 minutes. However every mug is different so I advise checking on it after 10 and then make a call.

I use zucchini for the noodles. Do they need to be pre-cooked?

Hi Gemma! Thank you for these mug meals, a million times over again! This recipe, in particular, is simply amazing! I did a few things different from the original recipe you have posted. I used 92% xxlean ground beef (from a cow we had butchered from an organic farm),in place of sausage. And I also combined 4%milk fat cottage cheese, Kraft grated parmesan, dried parsley, and a bit of salt in the food processor until (kind of)similary the consistency of ricotta..In place of ricotta. And I really cant believe how delicious it is..but mostly how quick and easy!! Thank you… Read more »

What would one do if they wanted to make mug recipes in an 9×13 pan. The recipe I was wondering about was the mug lasagna, mug chocolate brownies and your mug cakes – is their a way to make more ingredients and put them in a 9×13 pan. I cook for 5 people so that is why I’m needing more than just one mug meal.

Love your mug meals. I recently started trying mug meals. Tried lasagna today and i didnt had ricotta cheese and spinach so added potato, onion and tomato lol still came out so yummy. I also made your omellette, chocolate cake, breakfast muffin and everything came out yummy. Thank you for all the recipes 🙂

Hi Gemma! I only have no boil lagsana sheets so do it need to boil and cook it first or just leave it in also can I leave it ricotta cheese and other substitutes and only have tomato sauce? I could also use cooked ground meat right?

Thanks Gemma!

Such a wonderful way to enjoy lasagna and not have a huge pan of leftovers, and all the messy cleanup as well. Another delicious mug recipe, Gemma.

Now the burning question: where did you find the lovely blue mug? If a thrift shop, would you be willing to share the info on the bottom so I can search for one? Please.
