No one wants to devote the time and energy required to make a whole pan of lasagna when more often than not you’ll tire of all the leftovers after a couple days and then it just feels like a waste, making lasagna cupcakes the perfect substitute for a family gathering or addition to any party.

This savory is treat is crafted using wonton wrappers nestled in muffin tins to create that classing layered element lasagna is known for. The original recipe calls for beef, but that can easily be swiped out for something that suits your unique tastes. You could even substitute zucchini or another vegetable to create a delectable vegetarian version.

Recipe via tablespoon.com

  • 1/3 pound ground beef
  • Salt and pepper
  • 24 wonton wrappers or boiled lasagna noodles (about 6-8)
  • 1 3/4 cups Parmesan cheese, grated
  • (divided)
  • 1 3/4 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded (divided)
  • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup jarred pasta sauce
  • Basil for garnish (optional)
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • Brown beef, and season with salt and pepper. Drain.
  • Cut wonton wrappers or lasagna noodles into circle shapes (about 2 1/4- inches) using a biscuit cutter or the top of a drinking glass. You can cut several at a time. Note: For a more rustic look, no cutting necessary!
  • Reserve 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese and 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese for the top of the cupcakes. Start layering the lasagna cupcakes. Begin with a wonton wrapper and press it into the bottom of each muffin tin. Sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese, and mozzarella cheese in each. Top with a little meat and pasta sauce.
  • Repeat layers again (i.e. wonton, Parmesan, ricotta, mozzarella and pasta sauce). Top with reserved Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses.
  • 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. Makes 12 cupcakes.
