Here is the easiest lasagna you’ll ever make! Mini Lasagna Cups are a gorgeous main dish that makes us all swoon.
Instead of laboring for hours over traditional lasagna, try this modernized version of the Italian classic using wonton wrappers to make lasagna cupcakes in convenient individual portions. All you need is a muffin pan and 6 simple ingredients (ok, we didn’t count oil, salt and pepper). You got this!
Serve these as a main course with some salad and wine to make a delicious meal. It’s seriously the best comfort food oozing with yummy cheesy and tomato flavors.
We’ve made them for lunch and brunch as well as dinner. And a great hack is you can make them ahead, freeze them and reheat easily in the oven or microwave because they’re smaller.
How To Make Mini Lasagna Cups
Making these cups starts simply with pressing a square wonton wrapper into a muffin cup. Then you add the other ingredients: ricotta, parmesan, mozzarella, browned beef and marinara. Repeat one more time, and you’re done your first cup!
It’s pretty easy and should only takes a minute a cup at most. Plus if you have kids or friends around, it’s a fun activity to do together. Kind of like culinary bonding in pursuit of yummy creations.
You can find wonton wrappers in a 3-1/2 inch size format like these at the supermarket in the refrigerated section. Failing that look at an Asian grocery store, and one package will have more than enough.
It’s easy to make a bite size appetizers for a party if you happen to be entertaining. Simply use this same recipe with the smaller 2-inch wonton wrappers and a 24-cup mini muffin pan. They’ll be your most popular hors d’oeuvre, guaranteed!
