Y’all, I LOVE Italian food. If I could only eat one cuisine of food for the rest of my life, it would be Italian; pasta, marinara, bread…le sigh. That’s my jam.

 

When I saw an easier version of one of my fave Italian dishes—lasagna—I was stoked! I had to try it!

Here’s what you need:

Ricotta cheese

~Mozzarella cheese

~Your preferred spaghetti sauce (I lurves Prego)

~Ground Italian sausage or ground turkey (not pictured)

~Wonton wrappers

 

Preheat oven to 375*. If you haven’t already, brown the sausage or turkey (whichever you decided to use) and mix with your spaghetti sauce (I tend to brown my ground turkey as soon as I bring it home from the grocery store and then freeze it. So it cut my prep time down dramatically!).

Then, lightly spray a muffin/cupcake pan with non-stick spray. Place one wonton wrapper in each muffin space in your tin.

Add a tablespoon of ricotta cheese in each wonton wrapper.

Dollop a tablespoon of sauce on top of the ricotta and sprinkle mozzarella on top.

Pop them in the oven for 10-12 minutes and allow them to cool. Then, serve!

These tiny lasagnas were DELISH! They were super yummy and SUPER easy! I honestly think that next time I have to bring something to a potluck, I’m bringing these. It took me less than 10 minutes to prep and then cooked in 10-12 minutes! It. Was. Awesome.

 

My Favorite Things {To Eat}

Merry Monday before Christmas!

With the big day only a tad over 48 hours away, you’re probably starting to think about what you’re going to take to your many family functions. If you don’t want to actually bring something, I’ve got some great suggestions for you! Every year I look forward to this season because its when the best of the best foods come around my house. And my family does not skimp when it comes to holiday eating!

Here’s my Top Four Favorite Holiday Treats!

 

#4. Jalapeno Poppers

Full disclosure: my dad makes these almost exclusively in the summertime. However, we are preparing for Ultra Feast on New Year’s Eve and he has already said that these are totes on the menu. I am SO excited! The poppers may seem a little extreme, given that they’re made with a crazy-hot pepper, but they’re actually not as spicy as you might think. The cream cheese really helps to mellow out the kick! Plus, the peppers are wrapped in bacon. And everything is better with bacon! Get the recipe here!

 

#3. Fruit Pizza

We haven’t had this dessert is sooooooo long! It used to be a staple for our New Year’s Eve partay’s, but sadly, its gone away. I’m hoping to revive it this year! Its a pretty simple recipe. All you need is sugar cookie dough (you can even use store bought!), cream cheese, powdered sugar, and your favorite fruits! Get the stats here!

 

#2. Chili Cheese Dip

I love this dip because its always a home run when there’s a lot of people and its super simple to make! Its perfect for the colder months and can be tailored to fit your tastes! You add or subtract just about anything from this recipe and its still awesome! Get some ideas for your own creation at this site!

 

#1. Peanut Butter Ball

My sister found this recipe on Pinterest and I have never before been so thankful for the internet. This sweet dip takes two of my favorite foods: peanut butter and chocolate and makes them edible with a spoon. (Well, I guess you could eat peanut butter straight out of the jar with a spoon, but this is SO much better!) Again, its a super simple recipe that looks like you’ve spent all day making, so you can totes impress your in-laws! This dip is good with sugar cookies, graham crackers, and apple slices!

 

 

Happy eating!
