Hi Bold Bakers!
Lasagna made from start to finish in a Mug in the microwave 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 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!
And for the first time, you’ll find the nutritional values, calories and Weight Watchers Points for each Mug Meal with the printable recipes on each of the recipe pages.
Whether you are cooking for one, have a small kitchen (or no kitchen), or you want to control your portions, this Microwave Lasagna is for you!
Another good thing about this Mug Lasagna is that you can customize the flavors with what you already have on hand.
Who would have thought a Homemade Lasagna would be so easy to make?
This Mug Lasagna can be made up the day before and cooked off the next day to make your life easier.
- 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
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!
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.
