As part of ModernMom Insiders, I was sent a promotional item to facilitate this post. All opinions are 100% mine and this recipe is my original twist on a classic.
Have you ever made homemade lasagna before? The first time I did, I was surprised at how hard it was to keep the lasagna noodles from tearing once they were cooked. It was a long process that was totally worth it in the end, but I don’t have that kind of time on a daily basis.
Today, I’m sharing my twist on a classic lasagna recipe. It’s ready in 30 minutes and your kids will love helping you assemble the personal lasagnas!
I used Ragú®’s Old World Style® Traditional Sauce, cheese raviolis, and mozzarella cheese. So easy!
Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce is made with 11 juicy tomatoes, making it its richest, thickest recipe versus their previous OWS formula.
Ada & Lola were so excited to help me on our assembly line! I did the sauce, they were the ravioli and cheese distributors.
Sauce, raviolis, repeat.
Little (clean) helping hands!
Ready for cheese:
Finally the messiest & most fun part – topping with cheese!
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, brown under the broiler, serve with garlic bread and a green salad and you’ve got a perfect Italian meal!
We invited the Parkers over for dinner, we go way back! Tiana and I have been best friends since we were three years old. We both married boys who speak French and each have two kids.
I busted out the tablecloth and cloth napkins for our feast! So much fun with this bunch, we could talk and laugh for hours.
I tend to take pictures right after everyone takes a huge bite…look at Lola!
Mini Personal Lasagnas
- 1 16 oz. jar Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce
- 1 20 oz. package refrigerated cheese raviolis
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place oven-safe ramekins on counter.
Boil refrigerated raviolis according to package directions (approx. 10 min.) and drain.
Spoon about a Tablespoon of sauce into the bottom of each ramekin.
Layer raviolis on top, we used three for each layer.
Follow with another layer of sauce, and another layer of raviolis, repeating until you have reached the top of the ramekin and ended with the sauce layer.
Top each lasagna generously with mozzarella cheese.
Arrange mini-lasagnas on a foil-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes, until cheese is melted. Broil for 5-10 minutes until cheese is browned.
