Ingredients
  • 10 Lasagna Noodles, Cooked until al Dente
  • 1 15 Ounce Container Ricotta Cheese

Deep Fried Lasagna Tips:

  1. Don’t skip freezing the lasagna bites. I know you want them NOW, but they will melt/explode if the cheese isn’t cold enough.
  2. Don’t crowd your skillet, work in batches until all are fried. The oil will stay hot, and your lasagna will stay crispier!

Serve with:

  1. Skillet Lasagna
  2. One Pot Sausage Pasta
