Single Serving Lasagnas

People really like petite things.  I don’t get it, personally, but I do get that I need to cater to your interests.  What with all the mason jars, cupcakes, and mini things people are eating these days, I’d be ignoring a large portion of you by continually berating you with family sized dishes.

Oh you aren’t a glutton and don’t want to eat fifteen-thousandity calories in one meal?  You’d like a baby portion of dinner?  Well okay.  I got you. I’d be lying to you if I told you that I created this dish to appease your appetite with tiny portioned dinners.  What really happened is that all of my bakeware was dirty and I didn’t feel like battling Mt. Dishmore.  So I pulled out my muffin tin and went for it.

  1. First of all, I love the new blog design! Definitely Whit-tastic! And these lasagnas sound like an awesome snack – I say snack because I would probably eat one after another after another. Yeah, I’m a fat kid =)
