Easy to prepare, this Grilled Sausage Lasagna recipe is an excellent make-ahead single-serving dish that can be frozen until you’re ready to cook. With a bold flavor, every lasagna lover will adore these!
Yesterday was a day filled with sandcastles, swimming and laughter.
The kids and I spent nearly all day at the beach (don’t worry, we remembered the sunscreen!). We paused for a fast lunch, but otherwise, we could be found splashing in the water, playing in the sand and generally having a good time.
When I brought Paige home at 4ish, she collapsed into bed for a long, long nap. That’s the sign of a good day.
It nice on days like yesterday to have an arsenal of ready-to-go dishes that won’t heat up the kitchen.
These little single-serving lasagnas are just that. Make a batch of this Grilled Sausage Lasagna recipe and freeze them when you have time, and then you can just whip them out to defrost. When it’s time to cook, they cook on the grill in just 10 minutes.
This isn’t a recipe that sacrifices flavor for a quick and easy cooking time. In fact, the sausage, cheeses, sauce and other ingredients create a sophisticated, bold dish that lasagna and sausage lovers will adore.
This recipe for Grilled Sausage Lasagna is also a cinch to prepare.
Start by cooking lasagna noodles. Once they are cooled, layer them with ricotta, sausage and marinara in a mini loaf pan. I prefer to use disposable pans for this, but you could use reusable ones if you prefer. Then finish it off with fresh mozzarella.
From there, you can either cook them immediately or wrap them and freeze until you’re ready to make them for dinner.
The result is a delicious, satisfying pasta dish that goes perfectly with a big tossed salad.
