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.

I’m always looking for easy and fun recipes on Pinterest (keyword: easy). Basically if a recipe has less than 5 ingredients and 5 steps, I’m totally on board. And, thankfully, Pinterest delivered!

Here’s what you need:

~1 can Pillsbury biscuits

~mozzarella cheese

~pepperoni

 

~a waffle iron

 

First, plug in your waffle iron to pre-heat. Then, pop open the can of biscuits (and try not to scream in terror like I did when the can literally pops) and separate the biscuits. Split the biscuits in the middle, but leave a little “biscuit hinge” like so (It’ll be a lot easier to close up the biscuits and not have all of the stuffing’s fall out):

Sprinkle your cheese and pepperoni (I also put a dash of oregano and garlic powder in there, just so it wouldn’t be so bland). After you’ve place your fixin’s, close up the biscuit and place in your pre-heated waffle iron.

A minute (or so) later, your waffle pizza will be ready to eat!

These things were SOOO tasty! Huff the Hubs said, “Uh, these need to be in the permanent dinner rotation!” Homeboy ate FOUR (and a half)! These would be great for a kid’s sleepover or movie night with the family!
