Occasionally, and I emphasis occasionally, I get an inkling to cook. Usually it's because I've visited a blog and I've seen a really neat recipe. Or I have read a magazine and thought, "Wow, that looks kind of easy". Because let's face it, I want my life to be as easy as possible. It's funny because I tell myself that I don't like to cook, but when I actually do take the time to really do it, I enjoy it. Travis tells me that what I cook is really good. And I believe him. It really is pretty good. Most of the time. This one time I cooked some sort of enchilada casserole and let's just say, I will never, ever do that again. And if I do, Travis and Owens will remind me of why I should never, ever do that again.
Anyway, last week or maybe the week before that, I saw this recipe for lasagna cups. It made me stop, ponder and then I decided to be brave and actually try them myself. I love lasagna and these were like little tiny bites of lasagna. And they seemed pretty easy and pretty quick. I was definitely intrigued. I scribbled down the recipe, sent Travis to the grocery store and one night last week I cooked them. I followed the recipe exactly, except it called for wonton wrappers, which we couldn't find. Therefore, I used filo dough. (And no, I didn't think of that on my own.)
This is how they turned out:
Now, they may not be as eye-pleasing as the ones Amanda (And no, I don't know her personally.) cooked up, but I promise you they are just as mouth-watering. People, these things were amazing. I could not get over how delicious they were OR how easy they were to make. I was pretty darn pleased with myself. Travis loved them and even MK took a few bites. Definitely a recipe I will file way in the "Must Try Again and Again and Again" folder.
