Tonight, I'll be making lasagna -- minus the tray of leftovers --  by creating my sister Colleen's pepperoni lasagna bowls.

There are so many things that I love about this recipe, the ricotta mixture, the marinara sauce, the pop of flavor from the pepperoni and of course the fact that it is made just for two. 

Pepperoni Lasagna Bowls
Total Time: 45-55 minutes
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 30-40 minutes

What you'll need
4 lasagna noodles, cooked
2 cups marinara sauce
2 cups fresh mozzarella cheese
16 slices pepperoni 
4 ounces ricotta cheese 
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tablespoon breadcrumbs
1 egg yolk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
2. In a small mixing bowl, combine ricotta cheese, parsley, garlic, breadcrumbs, egg yolk, salt and pepper.  Mix well. 
3. Add about 1 tablespoon of marinara sauce to the bottom of your oven safe  bowls (you can either use pre-made marinara sauce or you can use my recipe for marinara, which is listed in my marinara burger post).
4. Add 2 cooked lasagna noodles to each bowl.
5. Scoop about 1 to 2 tablespoons of the ricotta mixture into each bowl.
6. Add another layer of marinara sauce and a layer of pepperoni slices. 
7. Top pepperoni with a thin slice of fresh mozzarella cheese. 
8. Fold one lasagna noodle over the mozzarella cheese. 
9. Repeat steps 5 and 6. Then, fold the second lasagna noodle over the pepperoni layer.  Top with mozzarella cheese. 
10. Bake covered for 30-40 minutes or until cheese and sauce begin to bubble.  Serve and enjoy!
