Spinach Ricotta Lasagna in a Mug

Serves 1
Prep Time12 mins
Cook Time3 mins
Total Time15 mins


  • 1/2 fresh lasagna sheet
  • 2 1/2 cups (75g) baby spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 medium yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 3 large basil leaves, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp granulated garlic
  • 6 TBS pasta sauce or tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella


  • Cut the lasagna sheet in half, and cut each strip in half again. Place the pasta sheets into a bowl, and pour very hot water in it, until it covers all the pieces. I used boiled hot water from my electric kettle. Set the pasta pieces aside.
  • Chop the spinach and place it in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover the top with plastic wrap and poke a few holes in it for ventilation. Microwave for 1 minute. Take out the spinach and let it rest.
  • Grate the mozzarella while you wait for the spinach to cool.
  • Mix the spinach with the ricotta, pepper, granulated garlic, and salt. Set mixture aside.
  • Pour 2 tablespoons of pasta sauce at the bottom of the mug. Top with a piece of softened pasta sheet. Add some spinach mixture, 2 tablespoons of mozzarella, and a pasta sheet. Continue building the lasagna, ending with a layer of pasta sheet at the top. Sprinkle mozzarella over the pasta.
  • Microwave everything for 1 minute 30 seconds. Check to make sure that the mozzarella is melted. If it isn't, continue microwaving at 15-second intervals until the cheese is fully melted.
  • Serve immediately.


1. Loosely adapted from Meal in A Mug.
2. This recipe also works with collard greens instead of spinach. It tastes great, but do note that the collards will have less moisture than spinach.
