Petite Lasagna Cups

Lasagna is always a favorite meal for everyone! A while back I spotted a recipe for Petite Lasagna Cups, using Wonton Wrappers instead of pasta noodles. I adapted the recipe with my own favorite ‘lasagna’ ingredients, and voila! Here it is!

Yum

These take less time to bake than traditional Lasagna and contains less calories. You can use half-fat Cottage Cheese if you wish – but it’s Lasagna! You only live once, so I say enjoy this classic taste! They present nicely too, right?

My family loved this recipe {paired with Caesar Salad}, we will be making this again!

Enjoy!

    Those are perfect! I love the idea!!! I like how A) They are cute! B) They are perfect for a serving size. C) They look like they can be frozen easily.

    I’m always on the lookout for something a little different. I still make meals for my sister’s family that has the Trisomy 18 baby. He’s had jaw surgery. But on a good note, he’s almost a year old! The 2 week stay in the hospital was well worth it! He can now swallow. They need meals at their house when he’s in the hospital.

    I’ve been making a lot of Spaghetti Squash Pie. You can make it by using a sprayed glass pie plate, add 1/2 a cooked squash (drained) mixed with 1/2 cup Parmesan and two eggs (form a pie crust), add tomato paste, cooked Italian Sausage, cottage cheese and grated mozzarella cheese on top. Cook 375 degrees until the cheese is brown. You can revise it many ways. I’ve added olives, spinach and so on.

    Looks fantastic for the little one & sounds yummy. I have a question though, will the wonton skins came out crunchy? (both outside & inside layers)

    • Tammi says

      The outside is nice and crispy yet the inside bakes to the consistency of noodles. So really, it’s like Lasagna with the crunchy outer pieces and the inside softer. Great question, thanks for asking!
