More About This Recipe

  • The featured recipe in this post is a make-over version of Lasagna-Style Casserole, which had only a one-star rating.

    I love Italian food. Lasagna has always been a favorite, but it's a lot of work. Sometimes it's fun to take the flavors you love from one recipe and put them together in a different way. That's what's so great about these Individual Lasagna Casseroles.

    Instead of pasta, this recipe has a crispy parmesan breadcrumb topping. Mixed in with the meat sauce are extra vegetables which provide color, nutrients, and texture. Kids will love how the casseroles are served in individual dishes. And because they're baked in smaller proportions, the recipe cooks faster too.

    These casseroles are great served with a big green salad, such as this Italian Mixed Salad, and a loaf of hot bread. I think this Homemade Focaccia Bread with Rosemary and Onions or Braided Pesto Bread would be great compliments!

    Buon Appetito!
