Use that box of lasagna noodles! These recipes allow you to create delicious appetizers and dinners by rolling, layering, or snapping the noodles.

4. Put them in soup

Instead of throwing away leftover lasagna sheets, consider incorporating them into a soup. A lasagna noodle swap would be ideal for dishes like meatball soup, minestrone, pasta e fagioli, and chicken noodle soup.

Depending on the soup and where you are in the recipe, you can add the noodles cooked or raw. For example, you can add uncooked noodles to a simmering pot to cook with the other ingredients, or you can stir cooked noodles into leftover soups at the last minute. For either method, it is best to break or cut them into smaller pieces in advance.

Making lasagna soup with all the traditional ingredients—ground beef, onions, tomato sauce, basil, and oregano—is a delicious way to stick with the noodles theme. When cooking is almost done, add some shredded cheese or a few spoonfuls of ricotta to give it a final flourish.

11. Make lasagna cupcakes

Kids can participate in this entertaining project: line a muffin pan with lasagna noodles to create tiny, savory cupcakes. This is very simple to do, but in order to keep them from sticking, you must first spray the pan. The noodles should be boiled until they are al dente, or very bendable. There will be some overhang if you use half of a sheet for each cup; this will become crunchy when baked.

Pick a filling that you like; it doesn’t have to consist of the traditional lasagna ingredients. For example, you could use chopped squash, peppers, onions, and mushrooms to make vegetable-themed cupcakes, or you could make a breakfast version with eggs, bacon, and cheese. Cupcakes with spinach, artichokes, and chicken and dressed in a cream sauce can look elegant on any table. In reality, anything that fits in the cup works. They can serve as a side dish or a main course, and you can make them as light or hearty as you like.
