Mini Lasagna Cups

Every once in awhile I buy these wonton wrappers because I find them extremely versatile. I’ve made several recipes with wonton wrappers, such as my Strawberry and Nutella Wontons, Turkey and Mushroom Rolls, and Mini Apple Pies in Wonton Wrappers. So I thought it was time for another savory recipe with these wrappers.

I came across a similar recipe on Kevin and Amanda‘s blog and I thought I’d try my own version of these mini lasagna cups. I actually made these lasagna cups back in January but I never got around to posting it, until now. The meat mixture is exactly the same as I used for my stuffed zucchini, I just made a lot then, so out of it I actually made three different dishes. In either case there’s ground beef, chorizo sausage and spaghetti sauce here. It’s really delicious. Basically, you just cook the beef in a large skillet until it’s no longer pink, add spices and chorizo sausage. Next pour the spaghetti sauce over it and mix well.

Next you need to coat a 12 cup mini muffin tin with cooking oil. Make sure you spray it well, you don’t want these babies sticking. Arrange a wonton wrapper in each cup and in each cup add a tablespoon of ricotta cheese.

Then take a heaping tablespoon of the meat mixture and add to each cup, be generous.

And finally add some cheddar cheese, you can’t miss the cheddar cheese. This is the best part.

Bake for about 10 or 15 minutes at 375 F degrees then garnish with some basil.

And that’s all she wrote. These mini lasagnas cups are super easy to make and they are extremely delicious. Not to mention they won’t make you feel so guilty as you eat them. ;)

    My sister in law found this recipe for me. Our family loved them. I also made a taco version of this. Instead of ricotta cheese on the bottom, I used retried beans. Omitted the spaghetti sauce and added a tablespoon of taco seasoning instead. Fixed the rest as normal. Garnished with a dollop of sour cream and diced tomatoes right before serving. So good!

    These look great! One thing….you say to use “mini” muffin tins but it looks like you’re using a regular muffin pan. Are my eyes deceiving me?

      Hi Jen,
      Well it’s mini to me, it’s the small one, not the one for the jumbo muffins. So I guess you’re right. :)
