Lasagna in a Bun

Today’s recipe comes to you from my friend, Megan. She and her husband, Brian, are expecting their first baby this summer! I’m super excited! But anyway, she and I have exchanged some pretty great recipes over the years and today’s is no exception! πŸ™‚


Lasagna in a Bun

Ingredients:

8 sub buns
1 lb ground beef
1 cup spaghetti sauce
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1 tbsp garlic powder

Directions:

1. Hollow out center of bread.

2. Brown meat and drain. Add spaghetti sauce, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning.

3. Combine cheeses, leaving out 1/2 of cheddar. Spoon meat sauce into bun, top with cheese. Place on cookie sheet and cover with foil. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

The great thing about a recipe like this: it’s highly adaptable. I used leftover pizza sauce and only mozzarella cheese because that’s what I had on hand. And subbing ground turkey for ground beef is always a super simple swap. Then you can add whatever favorite Italian spices you have on hand (I love rosemary for example!). Plus, they are completely adorable! Perfect for portion control. πŸ™‚
