I love finding new ways to make something. It just makes me happy… and these mini lasagna sure fit that mold! You know, not everything I try is worth sharing on my blog… I don’t share when it ends up as a fail… but these are no fail, these are just as cute as they are good!!!
Easy, fun to do with the kids and delicious! I found these baking dish at my local dollar store. We love lasagna -who doesn’t love lasagna, come on!!!- but these mini-individual-snowman-lasagna are now a favorite of ours.
Use your regular pasta sauce (next time I want to try pesto and chicken lasagna), cook the noodles and let cool. Grate lots of cheese! You can never have too much grated cheese! Wrap one large noodle inside, around the baking dish, and then fill up the layers with pasta sauce, pasta, cheese, pasta sauce, pasta and more cheese! I made the eyes and mouth with black olives and the snowman nose with a mini carrot! So the veggies make it cute and also help with the guilt of eating pasta again!!!
Bake for 30 minutes at 350 and broil for a few minutes but don’t overdo it, you don’t want a sunburned snowman!
The next few months will be cold, so warm up with this cute diner and watch Frosty or Olaf.
