Mini Lasagnas
Lasagnas are so tasty. What is better than the combination of meat, cheese, sauce..did I mention cheese??! That's right, close to nothing :P These individual sized portions of lasagna are the perfect meal if you are watching your figure and portions! The wonton wrappers give this dish a unique twist that provides a crunch - representing the noodles of a lasagna. The layering process makes sure that with every bite, you and your loved ones will enjoy the classic taste of lasagna! Ingredients: - 12 oz raw ground turkey - ¼ tsp salt, divided - ¼ tsp pepper - 1 cup chopped onion - ½ cup chopped mushrooms - 14.5 oz can crushed tomatoes, or tomato sauce - 2 cloves garlic, minced - 3 tsp dried oregano, divided - ½ tsp dried basil - 1 ½ cups part skim ricotta cheese - 24 small square wonton wrappers - 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese Directions: 1) Preheat oven to 375ºF. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. 2) Add the turkey, onions, mushrooms, salt, and pepper. Crumble the meat and saute the mixture for about 10 minutes, or until the turkey is cooked through. Add the garlic and stir constantly for 30 seconds. 3) Add the crushed tomatoes and 2 tsp of oregano. Bring the pan to a gentle boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. 4) In a large bowl, combine the ricotta, a pinch of salt and pepper, the remaining teaspoon of oregano, and the basil. Stir to mix well. Set aside. 5) Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Place 1 wonton wrapper into each of the 12 cups, pressing firmly in the bottom of the cup and up the sides. 6) Using half of the ricotta mixture, divide it among the 12 muffin cups. Next, using half of the turkey tomato sauce, spoon it evenly over each of the ricotta filled cups. Sprinkle with 2 tsp of mozzarella. 7) Gently press another wonton wrapper on top of the mozzarella layer. 8) Repeat the process by distributing the remaining ricotta, then the remaining tomato sauce, and finally the rest of the shredded mozzarella. 9) Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. 10) Serve and Enjoy!
Pumpkin French Toast, Fall Breakfast Perfection~
Cooking Classy, you have done it again. Seriously guys, this is one of my favorite food blogs ever, because every single one of Jaclyn's recipes are a total win. Like this mouthwatering pumpkin french toast, made with real pumpkin puree, fall spices, and thick, fluffy slices of bread. Can it get better than this, I ask, on a chilly fall morning? I'll take two (helpings, not slices. Teehee) and a steaming café latté. Happy to have you back, Fall :) Cooking Classy's Jaclyn recommends serving warm with butter and maple syrup. I personally love the idea of adding a dollop of whipped cream too ;) Pumpkin French Toast Prep Time: Cook Time: Difficulty: Recipe adapted from Cooking Classy // Photos by Cooking Classy Makes about 9 slices What You'll Need 3/4 cup milk 1/2 cup pumpkin puree 4 eggs 2 Tbsp packed light brown sugar 1 tsp vanilla extract 1 tsp ground cinnamon 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg 1/4 tsp ground ginger 9 slices Texas toast (or other white bread such as Challah or French bread) Butter, for griddle 1. Preheat your cooking surface (if it's an electric griddle, turn it to 350°F; or if you're cooking on the stove, place a nonstick skillet over medium heat). 2. Combine milk, pumpkin puree, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk until evenly combined. 3. After making sure griddle is well-buttered, dip slice of bread into egg mixture, allowing a few seconds for it to soak all the way through. Flip to coat both sides. 4. Cook until golden brown, then flip and do the same on the opposite side. For extra super yumminess, re-butter griddle between flips. Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream and a side of maple syrup! :) Check out some other awesome fall recipes! Kimchi Jjigae by @RaquelArredondo – A delicious, spicy Korean soup to warm you up!
