How to Make Mini Lasagna Cups
To make them, you’ll need a 12-cup standard-size muffin pan along with 3-1/2 inch wonton wrappers, which you can find in larger supermarkets or Asian grocers.
Next, you’ll need to prepare the meat. Saute ground beef in a large skillet with salt and pepper until lightly browned.
Then press a square wonton wrapper into the bottom of each muffin cup. Add the other ingredients: ricotta, parmesan, mozzarella, browned beef and marinara. Repeat one more time for each cup and you’re done!
