I saw this great idea on Can You Stay for Dinner; a total must try - petite lasagnas. The concept was simple, bake lasagna in muffin tins. Easy enough, right? I scanned the recipe, looked over the pictures and decided I could definitely create these babies. I was amazed at how square her “noodles” looked but didn’t bat an eye as I closed my laptop and headed to the store.
I purchased everything I would need, including lasagna noodles. I was confident. I was completely sure I could wing this recipe. I was completely clueless.
This is what I was going for…

This is what I got…
Do you see the resemblance? Yeah, me neither. I cut the noodles just like I SAW in the pictures. Except the site didn’t actually show noodle cutting. It just showed pretty square noodly stuff. After the fail, I opened up the laptop and took a second look. You know what those pretty square patches were? Wonton wrappers. Yeah, wonton wrappers. I was foiled by a wrapper. Well, actually I was foiled by my own laziness and lack of reading.
I will probably try this again at some point. In the meantime, I highly recommend trying the Can You Stay for Dinner recipe. It works much better than my lame-ass attempt. DOH!!
