These are now one of my most favorite things to make! What’s super wonderful is that you can serve these as an appetizer or for a dinner.  They are filling and an easy alternative to making homemade lasagna.  
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 3/4 pound ground beef
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 8 ounces shredded mozzarella (or as much as you want!)
  • 3 ounces Parmesan cheese (or as much as you want!)
  • 4 ounces Ricotta cheese
  • (optional) basil for garnish
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray. My muffin tins are old and just don’t come clean anymore so I used cupcake liners.  I’m sure they would be more crisp if you didn’t use them though.
Brown beef and season with salt and pepper. Drain.
 Place two wonton wrappers in each mold of the cupcake pan.  I gently pushed and placed the wonton wrappers where I wanted them.  It gives them a rustic look! 
4. (
Reserve 6 tablespoons Parmesan cheese and 6 tablespoon mozzarella for the top of you cupcakes.)  Start layering your lasagna cupcakes. 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.
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.
Garnish with basil and serve.
ENJOY! :-)
