There is no better feeling as a home cook than having your kids clap their hands when you bring dinner to the table. I had this happen for a few dishes when my kiddos were little, and that always made my day. My whole week!
Tell them you are having cupcakes for dinner, then just sit back and wait for the cheering to begin!
Lasagna Cupcakes is one of those dishes that will bring cheers. You will hear cheers and clapping when you make these little cuties. And, don’t tell them how easy they are to make – just let them keep thinking you slaved all day long. Better yet, have kids join in the fun of making this simplified lasagna. Kids as young as 4 can help layer the ingredients in the muffin tins. Studies universally show that cooking and eating dinner with your kids results in happier, healthier kids – lower rates of depression, suicide, obesity, and much less likelihood of using drugs and alcohol. Really, shouldn’t we all be cooking with kids every day?
To simplify this recipe, I used round wonton sheets, making these a quick and flavorful dinner that is a snap to get on the table pronto – less than 20 minutes prep time. A perfect easy family dish for Meatless Monday!
And really:Â ricotta “frosting” with basil “sprinkles.” What’s more fun than that for dinner?
