Lasagna in a mug

The more practical and quick recipes are, the more time you have to be relaxed and profit from the company of your loved ones.

Here is an amazing 15 minutes recipe that will help you have different and easy yet healthy food on the table: Spinach ricotta lasagna in a mug, from Healthy nibbles & bits.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 fresh lasagna sheet
  • 2 1/2 cups (75g) baby spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 medium yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 3 large basil leaves, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp granulated garlic
  • 6 tbs pasta sauce or tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella

How to do it:

  1. Cut the lasagna sheet in half, and cut each strip in half again. Place the pasta sheets into a bowl, and pour very hot water in it, until it covers all the pieces. Set the pasta pieces aside.
  2. Chop the spinach and place it in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover the top with plastic wrap and poke a few holes in it for ventilation. Microwave for 1 minute. Take out the spinach and let it rest.
  3. Grate the mozzarella while you wait for the spinach to cool.
  4. Mix the spinach with the ricotta, pepper, granulated garlic, and salt. Set mixture aside.
  5. Pour 2 tablespoons of pasta sauce at the bottom of the mug. Top with a piece of softened pasta sheet. Add some spinach mixture, 2 tablespoons of mozzarella, and a pasta sheet. Continue building the lasagna, ending with a layer of pasta sheet at the top. Sprinkle mozzarella over the pasta.
  6. Microwave everything for 1 minute 30 seconds. Check to make sure that the mozzarella is melted. If it isn’t, continue microwaving at 15-second intervals until the cheese is fully melted.
Delicious!
