Treat yourself with this delightful recipe for Lasagna for One.
4 lasagna sheets(pasta)-cooked
1/4 onion, minced
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper to taste
450 gr Smooth marinara sauce – reserve about 4-5 Tbs. for later
1-2 Tbs. of Parmigiana cheese
drizzle of olive oil
1/2 Cup Shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup Italian herb bread crumbs, toast them with a bit of butter or olive oil by preheating the oil and dropping in the pan, stir until just slightly golden.
Fresh Herbs-basil, parsley, or cilantro
In a saucepan add about 1 tsp. of olive oil and add minced garlic and onion, saute for minute or two until they get soft.
Add ground meat; mix and break the meat into small pieces, and season with just a bit of salt and pepper; let it cook for next 5-7 minutes or until the meat is completely done.
Pour over the smooth marinara sauce and stir; cook until it start to bubble up and then at this point take it off the burner.
Once the pasta is done, put it in the well oiled baking pan and make package. Put two lasagna sheets horizontally and two vertically – cross 2 sheets with the other 2 sheets.
Pour just enough of the meat sauce in the middle of the lasagna sheets to be able to close them. I connected both sides with 2-3 toothpicks by making a package and punching those toothpicks through on both ends.
Pour reserved marinara sauce on top, and sprinkle bit of mozzarella cheese, Parmigiana cheese, toasted Italian style bread crumbs and some more Mozzarella cheese.
Drizzle over Olive oil.
Preheat the oven to 375F/190C and bake until the cheese is completely melted.
Garnish it with fresh herbs such as basil, parsley or cilantro.
