My husband and daughter love ham and pineapple pizza. I am really tired of pizza at the moment, but had some of the fixings in freezer and pantry but had no time to make the crust today. I had seen a blog post about hawaiian style lasagna and thought that sounded interesting so, I am making my own version.
1 TBS oil- .03 cents
1 pound cubed ham-$2.99
1 can pineapple chunks w/juice-.99 cents
1/2 box of lasagna noodles broken into pieces-.75 cents
1 jar pizza sauce- $1.25
4 cups shredded cheese-$4.00
8 strip precooked bacon, crumbled-$2.00
Parmesan cheese to taste-.25 cents
Total $ 12.26, total servings (12) $1.02 a serving
Heat oil in pan, but wipe out excess with paper towel before it's too hot. Add ham and pineapple to pan, cook stirring frequently till pineapple juice is almost gone. Add broken pasta, just barely cover with water, bring to a boil and then lower heat to a medium boil. Stir frequently. Cook for about 10 to 12 minutes. Most of the water should be gone and you will have a slight pasta sauce left. This is when you have to watch it closely so nothing burns. Add the pizza sauce to pasta-ham-pineapple mixture. Stir till everything is coated in sauce. Spray a casserole dish or baking pan with baking spray. Put 1/2 of pasta in dish. Cover with 2 cups of cheese. Sprinkle 1/2 of bacon on top. Spoon rest of mixture on top, cheese, bacon and parmesan. Bake in 400 F oven for 20 minutes.
This was yummy! I can't wait to enjoy the leftovers!
