These Lasagna Cupcakes are layers of pasta, pasta sauce, and cheese. It’s portion controlled lasagna!
I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. As much as I like staring at Oreos engulfed in peanut butter cookies, I’m sick of staring at those things. But since it’s been almost two weeks since I’ve posted, I feel like I need to break the silence.
It’s a little awkward.
Like running into someone you went on a date with two weeks ago and haven’t talked to since the date.
So hi, I’m here. I’ve been in a major food funk lately. All I want to eat is peanut butter.
It’s not like I haven’t been cooking. I’ve been making a lot of recipes but they have all flopped. Or at least in my pregnant hormonal mind they just aren’t good enough to share.

If you love these Lasagna Cupcakes, you’ll love these recipes:
- 1/3 pound ground beef
- Salt and pepper
- 24 wonton wrappers
- 1 3/4 cups Parmesan cheese grated
- 1 3/4 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
- 3/4 cup ricotta cheese
- 1 cup pasta sauce
- Basil for garnish optional
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray.
Brown beef in a skillet and season with salt and pepper. Drain.
Cut wonton wrappers into circle shapes, about 2 1/4-inches wide, using a biscuit cutter or the top of a drinking glass. You can cut several at a time. Tip: For a more rustic look, leave wonton wrappers uncut.
Reserve 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese and 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese for the top of your cupcakes. Start layering your lasagna cupcakes. Begin with a wonton wrapper and press it into the bottom of each muffin tin cup. Sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese, and mozzarella cheese in each. top with a little meat and pasta sauce.
Repeat layers (wonton, Parmesan, ricotta, mozzarella, and pasta sauce). Top each cupcake with some of the 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 cupcake out. Garnish with basil and serve.
