Valentine's Day Dinner.....

Love is in the air....and nothing says LOVE
like a great meal

I found a fun idea on PINTEREST for individual lasagna cups.
I had to change it up a bit because...well, I couldn't get them to look like they did on Pinterest.

Here's what I did:

To start...I cooked the lasagna noodles and lined my muffin tin with parchment paper
put one noodle across the muffin tin

I filled it with a basic lasagna mix {ground beef and Newman's Own marinara sauce}

Then I folded the edges over, topped with more sauce and then cheese....

I baked them at 375 for about 20 for that yummy cheese heart

I put a metal cookie cutter on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and filled it with a layer of Italian cheeses...

I baked them at 375 for 5 minutes until all of the cheese was melted together...I let them cool and then used a knife along the edges to release them from the cookie cutters

Just plate it up and serve with bread and salad and you are set!
