These mini lasagna bites are so scrumtious and tasty, and using my substitutions, you will never know you are eating a pretty healthy snack. These lasagna bites would make the PERFECT appetizer. They are also a great snack food or if you prefer, you could eat several of them, along with a salad, for dinner. I’ve adapted my recipe from here.
