Day 116 – Lasagna Cupcakes

{2 Comments}

I know what you’re thinking. These look really cute, but I don’t have time to make things like that. Would you believe me if I told you these were easier to make than regular lasagna? Believe it!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 3/4 pound ground beef (I used ground turkey)
  • 12 wonton wrappers (I used egg roll wrappers cut into fourths)
  • 8 ounces shredded mozzarella
  • 3 ounces Parmesan cheese
  • 4 ounces Ricotta cheese
  • (optional) basil for garnish

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray.

2. Brown meat and season with salt and pepper. Drain.

3. Cut wonton wrappers into circle shapes using a biscuit cutter or using the top of a drinking glass. You can cut several at a time. You can also leave them square. That’s what I did!

4. Reserve 6 tablespoons Parmesan cheese and 6 tablespoon mozzarella for the top of you cupcakes. Start layering your lasagna cupcakes. Begin with a wonton wrapper and press it into the bottom of each muffin tin. Sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese, Ricotta cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Top with a little meat and marinara sauce. Use around 1-2 teaspoons of all the ingredients depending on your personal preference.

5. Repeat layers ending with marinara sauce. Top with reserved Parmesan and mozzarella cheese.

6. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until edges are brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. To remove use a knife to loosen the edges then pop each lasagna out.

7. Garnish with basil and serve.

I absolutely love how fun and easy these are! I was unsure about the egg roll wrappers, but they really work! I would suggest following the directions and letting them cool for 5 minutes before trying to remove them. They are much easier to get out if you wait a few minutes. I’m way too impatient when my food comes out of the oven. I even forget the garnish…sorry basil!

  1. I’m off to buy a biscuit cutter! 🙂

  2. Just made these tonight, but I used croissants instead. I was able to fold the corners over, and they were absolutely delicious! My boyfriend ate every last bite and then did ALL of the dishes; I’ll have to make these again!
