LASAGNA IN A MUG, LC, GF

PIN: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/774124910728006/

I just got back home Thursday, after spending a week visiting my mom and helping out after she had hip replacement surgery.  I was exhausted when I got home, and was really hungry for something good, but also something quick and easy to prepare! I had all the ingredients for this on hand, thankfully, and it took very little time to throw together, microwave, and I was soon relaxing with a very tasty lasagna in a soup mug. I only wish I had thought of it before my trip, so I could have had it as a lunch option while there.  I have a difficult time when away from home, thinking of easy foods that I can either take along, or make easily at someone else's house.

I don't have small kids anymore, but I'm thinking, if you have children, they would love this.  It would be a great kid's meal.  I only have big kids now... adult kids that is, but this is great for any age.  I am thinking it will be a lunch I'll make for myself often.

I made a quick video for you so you can see how I put it all together.

    1. It's the brand name of the Pizza sauce I used, which you can get at Walmart or any grocery store in the pasta sauce section. You can use any pizza sauce or your own homemade as well. Just read the labels for those that don't add sugar.

    1. I thought of making some kind of breakfast thing in a mug too after I did this! Yes it would be great to make up another and keep it for the next day. I think I'm hooked on mug meals! :)

  9. I made this with hamburger, and I was in heaven. Thank you so much for a winning recipe. When I was eating carbs, frozen lasagna was my go-to lunch, and this was even better.

  11. I made this for dinner last night, using cottage cheese instead of ricotta and with crumbled hot sausage. It was delicious! I didn't miss the noodles at all.

  12. No disrespect intended here, but I noticed you stated you are born again Cristian (as am I)... I was surprised however that apparently you eat pork; I will try this recipe, but will use beef.

  13. Had a pregnancy craving for lasagna - and this was perfect! I didn't have any sausage on hand, but this cup of gooey cheese and sauce had the flavor I was looking for. Thank you for this amazing and simple recipe! I read one of your more recent posts saying you considered taking this blog down - I'm so glad you left it up. Can't wait to try more of your recipes!
