If you want a simple appetizer or Italian brunch start, these mini lasagnas are for you!
Wonton wrappers are used as the pasta element in this lasagna, which makes this a simple twist with all the classic lasagna elements with layers, three types of cheeses, veggies and pasta. Feel free to add summer squash or other veggies in the mix.
In my family carbs and cheese are main food groups. Lasagna has always been a comfort favorite and these mini cups are great for planning ahead for a busy week or simply portion controlling how much cheesy goodness you consume.
Try it out and be sure to let me know what you think! *Please note, if you do not have the Silicone Mold or some of the Tupperware Products used, you can still do the recipe. Just adjust the amounts in each cup and be sure to spray if using muffin tins.
Mini Veggie Lasagna
1 1/2cups parmesan cheese,grated
1 1/2cupsmozzarella cheese,shredded
small zucchini, diced
1 1/2 tsp Italian Herb Seasoning
Salt and Pepper to taste
Basil for garnish
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
Sprinkle with some Italian Herb Seasoning on your zucchini and cook for 5 minutes in the MicroPro Grill.
In a small bowl, mix 1 tsp of Italian Herb Seasoning with the ricotta.
Start layering your mini lasagnas in the Tupperware Silicone Muffin Mold (Be sure to put an ultra pro cover or sheet pan underneath. Begin with a wonton wrapper and press it into the bottom of each muffin cup. Sprinkle a little parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese, and mozzarella cheese in each. Top with a little zucchini and pasta sauce.
Repeat layers (wonton, parmesan, ricotta, mozzarella, zucchini and pasta sauce). Top each cup with some of the reserved parmesan and mozzarella cheeses and a light sprinkle of the Italian Herb Seasoning.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until edges are brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Because the Silicone Molds are nonstick, each lasagna mini with pop out.
Garnish with basil and serve.

Below are 2 recipes for DIY Cleaning Wipes and Hand Sanitizing Wipes. Yes, you can always use a paper-towel roll cut in 1/2 to fit your container, pulling from the center like you would the wipes you purchase at the store. But I personal prefer to use washcloths or cut up old towels, blankets or t-shirts. Keep in mind, smoother fabric (like the receiving blankets or t-shirts) will be good for simple wipe downs, but the “scrubbiness” of a wash cloth works great for tougher jobs.
Try them out, and let me know what you think.
DIY Cleaning Wipes
7 regular washclothes or 10 thin cloths, 8-10 inches
Large quart-sized container with tight-fitting lid
1 cup distilled water (distilled is best, but filtered tap water is fine for short term storage)
1/2 cup vinegar (white distilled vinegar)
1/4 cup isopropyl alcohol (also known as rubbing alcohol)
1 ½ caps of thieves concentrated cleaner or 15-20 drops of your favorite essential oil (teatree, orange, lemon or lavendar are recommended)
Add water, vinegar, alcohol and thieves (Or oils) to container and stir.
Add cut-up cloths to container, and press down to soak up all the solution. (I fold my washcloths in ½ and roll)
Cover container, and flip it upside down to ensure all cloths are moistened.
Use as needed for quick cleanups!
Note: You can add a few drops of dish soap for extra grease-fighting power. You can leave out the alcohol, but make sure to increase the vinegar/water a bit so the liquid ratio stays the same.
DIY Sanitizing Wipes
Small reusable wash clothes, or paper towels cut in half to fit.
A Tupperware container (I used a Fresh N Cool Medium).
1/4 cup of hot water
2 tablespoons of gel aloe or baby oil with aloe,
1 1/2 cup of 99% rubbing alcohol (the higher the concentration, the more effective the sanitizing).
That’s it, fold, mix, pour, store.
****You can make this solution to fit any size container, as long as the end solution is 60% alcohol.****

If you have been following me, you know that I love Risotto! It is my comfort food and one of my go to’s on a cold, raining day. This week I tweaked my recipe for Mushroom and Asparagus Risotto, also throwing in some grilled veggies to the side. OH MY IS IT GOOD! I even has a grandson of a customer try it when they came by the studio. He said “It looked gross and I don’t normally like asparagus, but man is that good!” Huge shout out to Farm Fresh Carolinas for the Fresh Veggies (they really do make a difference). Also, be sure to watch my Fresh Tip Tuesday and learn some fun facts about Asparagus!
– 1 cup Arborio rice
– 8oz. (about 1 cup) fresh asparagus, coarsely chopped
– 1 tsp. coarse kosher salt
– 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
– 2 1⁄4 cups vegetable stock or water*
– 1 small onion, peeled, halved and chopped in Chop ’N Prep Chef
– 1 garlic clove
– 1 Tbsp. Italian Herb Seasoning
– 1⁄2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated in Grate Master Shredder
Rinse Arborio rice in strainer until water runs clear, about 30–60 seconds.
Pour rice into Tupperware Microwave Pressure Cooker base and add vegetable stock, asparagus, onion, garlic, seasoning salt and oil. Seal and microwave on 70% power 13 minutes.
Remove from microwave and set aside. (this allows the pressure to release naturally – until pressure indicator fully lowers – about 4–6 minutes.)
Remove cover and stir in Parmesan cheese.
FOR THE GRILLED VEGGIES:
Put peeled carrots and asparagus in the MicroPro Grill. Drizzle with Olive Oil and Italian Herb Seasoning. Place Cover in the Grill position for 6 mins. DONE!
