Ingredients

  • 1/2
    cup uncooked medium pasta shells
  • 1/2
    lb ground Italian sausage
  • 1
    cup tomato pasta sauce
  • 2
    cups loosely packed baby spinach
  • 1/2
    cup reduced-fat ricotta cheese
  • 2
    cans (6 oz each) Pillsbury™ Flaky Layers refrigerated Buttermilk biscuits (5 biscuits each)
  • 1
    cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Cook and drain pasta as directed on package.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, cook Italian sausage over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until no longer pink; drain. Stir in pasta sauce, spinach, ricotta cheese and cooked pasta; cook 1 to 3 minutes, until hot and spinach wilts. Remove from heat.
  • 3
    Separate dough into 10 biscuits; press each biscuit to 3 1/2-inch round. Firmly press 1 biscuit in bottom and up side of each of 10 ungreased regular-size muffin cups, forming 1/4-inch rim.
  • 4
    Fill each cup with about 1/3 cup sausage mixture; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  • 5
    Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from pan.

  • For best results, make sure all the mozzarella is on top of the lasagna mixture instead of spilling off onto the muffin pan.
  • For a lighter version, you can substitute ground turkey for the sausage. Just add 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes to the mix.
