Fast, fresh individually portioned lasagna bowls that please the stomach every time. I serve this with a small garden side salad and baked asparagus, but it easily could be a meal by itself.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook lasagna noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain.

  • Mix together drained noodles, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup Pecorino Romano cheese, and 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper in a bowl. Divide mixture among the ramekins. Top with 2 tablespoons Pecorino Romano cheese, drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil, and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is golden brown in spots and lasagna is heated through, about 10 minutes. Garnish with parsley and paprika, if desired.

I used no boil (gluten free) noodles but boiled them for 4 minutes anyway. The trick with this dish is keeping the noodles separated while mixing them with the cheese mixture. I used silicone tongs to manually separate the noodles while stirring. Reading the title I expected a lighter dish. This is a rich and cheesy lasagne that will satisfy you. It went nicely with a light salad. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

i did make this almost according to the recipe. the only thing i added was about 1 c. tom. sauce as i didn't think it would be saucy enough. i made it for a casserole dish (about 11 x 9). i used 8 noodles 12 oz ricotta 1 c. motz 3/4 c. parm and 1/2 c. asiago (only because i had lots of it). i cooked the noodles THEN cut them into smaller pieces - no problem with them sticking together that way. this is a great way to make lasagna but my guest and i did agree that it would be good with gr. beef in it. also cottage cheese (pulsed in the food processor) would be just as good and a lot less expensive than ricotta. i would make it again as it was easy to assemble used a lot less cheese (which can be expensive) and was very good with a side salad and a piece of garlic bread.

I was not impressed with this recipe. He other reviews weren t very helpful as they added ingredients used different kinds of noodles or less cheese. Basically the whole thing was a cheesey gloppy mess. It needed more flavoring than what the cheese could supply. I would make a cheese sauce with the ricotta and maybe some chicken broth and definitely add some steamed broccoli or spinach. Read More

Loved it! I love lasagna but my boyfriend isn't as crazy about it. This doesn't require sauce and it is easy. Read More

Too many noodles and not enough cheese! Lacked in flavor. I added some sweet Italian sausage and garlic which helped but still way to bland! I will try again but will add some traditional spices fewer noodles and more ricotta cheese! Read More
