Lasagna for One Please

One of my favorite meals of all times is lasagna. My number one problem of all time is I don’t eat leftovers. So when I make this amazing meal, half the pan goes to waste. I have found that if I make the meal in a smaller plan, there is less to waste. I still have an issue with wasting so much food. I think I get that from my grandpa and parents. Waste nothing!

So there I was, surging the world wide web and I found this amazing site called Pinterest and found some great ideas for making personal meals throughout the week.

Here is mine that I tried!

Make lasagna like normal, as if you were to put it in a 9×13 pan.

* One jar of spaghetti Sauce
* 1 lb hamburger
* 9 Lasagna noodles (break three inches off the ends)
* 2 packs of mozzarella

Spray with Pam.
Instead of putting your lasagna into a pan, put each row into one of the smaller containers and build it as if you would lasagna. (Noodle, sauce, cheese, noodle, sauce, cheese, noodle sauce, cheese)

Then bake at 350 degrees. Leave in for about 30-45 minutes and then cook with the foil off for 10 minutes. Since these are single rows, the time will vary on how quickly it will cook.

Num!!

The other two containers go into the freezer and can be pulled out any time you are ready for another amazing meal.

Instructions for frozen meals:

  • Pull out of freezer
  • Call my mom and find out how long to cook it

(Right now I am trying one hour at 350 degrees.)
