I have a confession: I can’t stand traditional lasagna, but it’s one of Ish’s favorite dishes…which means that I couldn’t just completely avoid it.
Instead, I needed to figure out a way for Ish to have one of his favorite meals and figure out a way that I would be able to eat it, too. So I got to work.
I was on a mission! We’ve tried zucchini, eggplant, and even skillet lasagna. Not quite what I was looking for. Ish kept insisting that it was delicious, but I think that he just didn’t want to sleep on the couch. So, after months of experimenting, I ran across a Petite Lasagna recipe. BINGO.
Those little cuties looked like lasagnas that weren’t actual lasagnas! They looked like little savory cupcakes. I can do this. Now I just needed figure out how to make it paleo-friendly. Guess what?
I did it! These babies are awesome, filling, and they freeze well.
It’s the perfect paleo trifecta!
Add in a romaine salad or some steamed veggies, and you’ve got yourself a deliciously hearty and healthy meal in mere minutes.
The best part about these is that they’re really quick to make, in fact, I usually make them up in the morning and stick them in the fridge until about 20 minutes before I need to have dinner in the oven.
