Who doesn’t love lasagna when it comes to Italian cuisine? This recipe is a fun twist on the classic lasagna recipe as it turns the big dish into easy handful portions that you can serve at a dinner party when there are other main dishes being served or at a brunch or tea time when light food is preferred.

It is quick and easy and is a delicious treat that both the family and guests will definitely enjoy. Savory cupcakes can never go wrong if you are making lasagna out of them.

Health benefits

Each lasagna cupcake has 200 calories, 470 grams of sodium, 12 grams of protein and 8 grams of fat.

Since it is a small portion, it is healthy to take. The 3 types of cheese provide you with calcium while the tomatoes in the pasta sauce provide lycopene. The ground beef has all the fat drained away so you are getting a good amount of protein per serving.

How to Make Lasagna cupcakes

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C.
  2. Grease the cupcake/muffin tray with cooking spray
  3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, pour the olive oil and let it heat up for a minute or so.
  4. Add the beef, salt and pepper to the skillet and cook for 7- 10 minutes or until it becomes a medium brown color. Drain away any fat from the beef and set aside.
  5. Cut the wonton wrappers into circles of 2 ½ inches by using a round cookie cutter. Every cup should have 2 layers of wonton wrappers to make 12 lasagna cupcakes. Press into each cup in the tray and repeat until the tray is full.
  6. Keep half cup of every cheese separate.
  7. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella, parmesan and ricotta cheese into all the wonton cups equally.
  8. Then add the beef and pasta sauce.
  9. Top the cups with the remaining cheese.
  10. Make sure the cups don’t overflow.
  11. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes and until you see the edges of the wonton cups browned.
  12. Run a knife around the edges gently to remove from cupcake tray.
  13. Garnish with fresh basil and enjoy!
