I would eat pasta for every meal if I could also maintain a normal weight. Alas, this is just a pipe dream.

One of my favorite Italian dishes is definitely lasagna. And while I've never been adventurous enough to make it in my own kitchen, I may actually give it a whirl in this reincarnation of the complex meal.

Not only do these lasagna poppers look absolutely delicious, they seem so much easier to make than a full pan of the savory dish. If you're looking for a new snack to try for your next party, these should be on your list:

Here's how to make these at home:

Ingredients:

  • Canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup of minced onion
  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups of marinara sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 ounces of mozzarella
  • 4 sheets of ravioli
  • 1 cup of flour
  • Egg wash
  • 1 cup of bread crumbs

Recipe:

  1. In a pan heat some canola oil, the garlic, onions, and ground beef. Brown the meat and drain the excess liquid.
  2. Return the pan to heat and add marinara sauce and salt and pepper to taste. After thoroughly mixed, remove from heat and add the mozzarella.
  3. In a pasta pot, add some salt and the ravioli sheets. Cook 8-10 minutes.
  4. On a plate, cut the sheets lengthwise so you have two strips.
  5. Spoon some of the meat onto one end and roll the strip.
  6. Freeze the rolls for 10 minutes.
  7. Dip each roll in a bowl of flour, egg wash, and then bread crumbs. Repeat the egg and bread crumbs once.
  8. Freeze them again for 12-15 minutes.
  9. Cook in frying oil for four to five minutes, let cool, and serve with marinara sauce!
