26 Bite-Sized Italian Recipes

From Shareable Lasagna Cups to Scrumptious Spaghetti Muffins

— April 3, 2015 — Lifestyle
These bite-sized Italian recipes range from shareable lasagna cups to scrumptious spaghetti muffins that are infused with tomato sauce and basil ingredients. Traditional Italian meals are enjoyed across the globe with favorites being pizza, pasta and lasagna. While these crowd favorites are incredibly delicious, they are also often described as caloric and heavy.

As consumers grow more conscious of health and dietary concerns, DIY Italian recipes are on the rise thanks to food bloggers who are showing followers alternative ways to indulge.

Portion control is key when it comes to these bite-sized snacks and meals. From tiny pizza muffins to hybrid pasta desserts, dieters no longer need to eliminate carbs from their meal plan and can instead indulge in compact versions of their favorite foods.
