LASAGNA CUPS

LASAGNA CUPS ARE FILLED TO THE MAX WITH DELICIOUS SAUCE AND OOEY, GOOEY CHEESE! THEY TASTE JUST LIKE LASAGNA AND THEY’RE FUN TO EAT!

 

 

 

We love lasagna at my house! After we would have lasagna for dinner, my oldest daughter, Jessica,  would come home for lunch when she was in high school to eat the leftovers! This is a whole new version of yumminess!

These mini lasagna cups are way too much fun. They even have layers of deliciousness. They are pretty easy to put together too and require just a handful of ingredients. A lot easier to make and a lot more simple than a whole lasagna, but still the same great flavor. In fact, my husband couldn’t get enough of these and said they were better than my regular lasagna.

 

 

 

This is perfect for any time but especially Summer! Less time to make and less mess to clean up!

 

That’s why these mini lasagna cups are pure genius. It’s so easy to make and they’re conveniently made into single-serving portions.

 

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 pound hamburger
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 cup marinara sauce, homemade or store-bought
  • 1 1/2 cups cottage cheese or ricotta 
  •  salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 24 2-inch won ton wrappers
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives

 

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly spray 12-cup standard muffin tin or coat with nonstick spray.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet oven over medium heat. Add hamburger, onion and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the hamburger as it cooks; drain excess fat and stir in marinara sauce.

Season cottage cheese with salt and pepper, to taste; set aside.

Fit wonton wrappers into each of the 12 muffin tins, pressing carefully to make sure there is an opening in the center. Fill each cup with 1 tablespoon ricotta cheese. Top with 1 tablespoon marinara mixture and 1 tablespoon mozzarella cheese; repeat with one more layer.

Place into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the wonton wrappers are golden brown.

Serve immediately, garnished with chives, if desired.

  1. could you use cooked lasagna noodles instead of wonton wrappers? also, for the vegetarians in my family, i am going to try plant-based crumbles (fake hamburger bits). That should work, right?

  2. I’m so taken with these! Your Lasagna Cups look so good, and they would make fabulous appetizers, canapés or snacks. Kids would love them too! Thank you so much for your support of the Hearth and Soul Link party. I’m featuring this yummy recipe at the party this week. Hope to see you there. Take care and have a lovely week!

  3. Yummerz!! What a great idea to use wonton wrappers for a new way to serve lasagna. They would make great appetizers too! Thanks so much for linking up to Centerpiece Wednesday! It’s so fun to familiar faces coming back to my party!

    Hugs,
