  • 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
  1. Roughly break the pasta sheets and place in a large microwavable mug.
  2. Cover with water and olive oil. The olive oil stops the lasagna sticking together while cooking.
  3. Microwave for 3-4 min or until the pasta is tender. Check on it half way through and stir.
  4. Once cooked drain away the cooking water and remove the pasta from the mug
  5. Add 1 tablespoons pizza sauce and spread on the bottom of your mug.
  6. Then do a layer of pasta, layer of spinach, sausage (optional) and ricotta.
  7. Repeat the layers all the way to the top of the mug
  8. Once you get to the top sprinkle grated cheddar on top.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
