Hawaiian Lasagna

So, I like my carbs just a little bit, as you can probably tell.

I try to eat relatively healthy just so that I don’t feel too guilty when I indulge (which is… often…), but I have nothing against pasta and cheese on a regular basis. Where I am, the temperatures have been cooling off dramatically, and I am all about comfort food.

Lasagna is definitely classic comfort food.

One of my favorite ways to come up with new recipes is to think of two foods I already love and bring them together. The possibilities are endless! I suppose you could call them mash-ups.

So I had this idea a while ago when I was staring at 2lbs of shaved deli ham I had purchased impulsively. I have a bit of an obsession with cold deli meat.

I know, it’s a bit strange. I eat it straight out of the fridge with no bread or condiments.

So I started thinking up different ways I could use it up and create something new, something I’d never seen before. I had lots of ideas, but some of them required quite a bit of effort. I’m not opposed to spending hours in the kitchen making one meal, but lately, there’s just no room in my life for that.

So Hawaiian Lasagna it was. And man does it smell amazing.

I mean, if you’re not a fan of Hawaiian pizza, it’s probably not going to be your thing. But Hawaiian pizza is pretty much my favorite — and I tell myself it’s healthy because ham is a lean meat and pineapple is fruit.

You could make this even healthier by adding any veggies your family likes: peppers, mushrooms, spinach…. or bacon. Totally not a veggie, but still.


I, on the other hand, was determined to keep it simple and quick.

So for those of us who need simple and quick (and cheesy and comforting) these days, here you are! The perfect quick and easy meal for your pre-trick-or-treating fun, or something to warm you up afterwards!

    LOVE!! Running out to the store now!! So great to see a recipe not caked with needless seasoning and spices. Plus the deli meat idea is perfect – low cost, low flavor 🙂

    I am going to pre-cook the bacon and noodles and put all the ingredients in my crock pot and try it that way. Going to give it a try anyway.

    So I thought this sounded a little weird when I first saw it… but I TOTALLY love Hawaiian pizza and it’s pretty much the same idea!! So I bet it’s amazing!! How creative! I always like jalapenos on my Hawaiian pizza, too, so I might add a few of those in!

      I totally don’t get people who don’t like pineapple on savory things — I love pineapple! Glad you’re on my side 😉
