You get home late from work, and the question is – what’s for dinner? You open the refrigerator and see wonton wrappers, leftover ricotta cheese, leftover meat sauce, and shredded mozzarella cheese. The answer is clear – these absolutely delicious Lasagna Cups!
Ingredients for Lasagna Cups:
As I just indicated, these little morsels contain four basic ingredients plus olive oil. I used wonton wrappers, ricotta cheese, meat sauce, and shredded mozzarella cheese. For the meat sauce, I used my delicious Bolognese Sauce.
Making the Lasagna Cups:
I brushed the muffin cups with the olive oil. I was going to just spray the cups with vegetable spray, but mine had gone off. The brushed olive oil worked just as well.
Then, I started building the Lasagna Cups. First, I pressed the wonton wrappers into the muffin cups. This was followed by some ricotta cheese (home-made of course), some meat sauce (also home-made), and shredded mozzarella cheese. I repeated the process with wonton wrappers turned 90 degrees, ricotta cheese, meat sauce, and mozzarella cheese. What could be easier?
Into a 375°F oven the Lasagna Cups went for about 15 minutes, until the cheese was melted and the wonton wrappers were golden brown. I removed the Lasagna Cups from the oven, and let them cool for about 10 minutes before removing them from the muffin pan.
Talk about good! I served the Lasagna Cups with some steamed vegetables. All through dinner, the Master Taste Tester kept saying “these are really good!” Another success. Yum!
