Final day of the blogging marathon “Kid’s Delight” series and I am back with yet another of my son’s favorite “Lasagna”. This is a healthy lasagna with loads of vegetables, minimal cheese and is a joint venture of K and me. What is Lasagna? It is nothing but a flat pasta which is layered between cheese, sauce and vegetables or meat. I decided on Lasagna but wanted to do something different and hence the cup version was born. To be frank I was shivering in the knees until I saw the end product. I even had the backup mini lasagna just in case .. you know what I mean . But all was well and my son enjoyed it thoroughly and the lasagna cups will be on the menu when cooking for kids particularly. So a big thanks goes to K for helping out with this multi-step recipe and for taking pictures while I had my hands dirty trying to assemble the layers.Bear with me friends because this is a long post with lots of pictures as I fell too much in love with the recipe that I absolutely could not skip any step. Keep reading and you will know why Don’t forget to check out the tips section for variations and for making regular lasagna instead of the mini version.
Few strips lasagna (each cup takes one strip of lasagna)
2 tsp olive oil
3 zucchinis diced
1 carrot grated
Again pasta, zucchini, grated carrots and cheese. Are we done yet?
Can you’ll see the layers? It looks yummy right.
Phew .. finally into the oven at 375F until cheese melts. Place in broil finally for the cheese to brown nicely. Just writing this post makes me hungry.
So here I have saved a piece for you’ll to have. Yum yum .. Kids enjoyed the cups and we enjoyed the mini version. I should say the mini version was totally moist and I did not miss the loads of cheese at all.
Healthy vegetable lasagna ready.
Interested in the cute leak proof glass container?
Lock & Lock Glass, Clear Heat Resistant Glass, Rectangular, 5.8-Cup Size, 1.35-Liter
1. Use any vegetable of choice and layer as needed. No rule here.
2. Mix ricotta cheese and spinach and use this to layer along with sauce.
3. Eggs can also be scrambled and added along with spinach.
4. If making a regular lasagna use a 9×13 pan and layer the full strips and add toppings as needed.
