What could be better than mini lasagna without all the effort of traditional recipes? These lasagna cups are perfect for entertaining, and you can serve them with marinara sauce for dipping!

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!
