Lasagna is always a favourite meal for everyone! A while back I spotted a recipe for Petite Lasagna Cups, using Wonton Wrappers instead of pasta noodles.

Lasagna Cups

I adapted the recipe with my own favourite ‘lasagna’ ingredients, and voila!

Here it is!

Lasagna Cups

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?

  1. OH MY! These look delicious! I’m definitely gonna try these out! Thanks for posting:)

  2. 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.

    1. Awe – poor guy, glad to hear he’s such a fighter. And good for you for helping, really, that does make all the difference!
      Thanks for the recipe Alissa, I need to try it soon!

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

    1. 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!

  4. What an awesome idea! I’m going to introduce this recipe to my family. Thanks for posting it.

  5. These look really yummy!! They don’t look that complicated to make either. I’ll have to make some for supper some night πŸ™‚

  6. Wow this is a very neat idea. I have made meatloaf muffins but not lasagna. Definitely going to try it!!

  7. I’m not a huge fan of lasagna, but my husband is. These are perfect for the both of us & I might have to try this weeked!

  8. These look ridiculously tasty. Seriously, is it dinner time yet? Oh wait – it is! Maybe I’ll try these for the weekend because it’s soup and sammie night tonight (it’s a good thing we’re soup&sammie fanatics!). My husband will gobble these up, I just know it. πŸ™‚

  9. I am printing this out. This sounds fun. I like the won-ton idea. Never thought of that. I am sure these will go over well.

  10. Tammi, this is making my mouth water…looks so good that I think I can smell it cooking…wishing you were my neighbour πŸ™‚

  11. Oh my goodness these sound terrific. I really want to make them. What I like is it sounds like the great lasagna taste but far less time. My daughter will love helping me on this one too.

  12. What a great idea! I love lasagna but a full pan makes sooo much everyone is sick of it by the time we finish it all. These are a perfect solution!

  13. I love this receipe, now to make it and serve it and get those great comments that all chefs love to hear, Thanks for the receipe.

  14. Wow, these look delicious, now I just have to find wonton wrappers, have never bought them before

  15. Such a great idea? Would be great frozen, so I know when I am not home my husband wont have to cook dinner!!

  16. I love this idea! This would be a great snack to serve when our grandson has friends over. I think the boys would really enjoy this and I think I could even sneak a few veggies in there πŸ™‚

  17. These look easy and delish! The two things I look for in a new recipe! Can’t wait to try them!

  18. These sound so yummy. I like how you can also accomodate that picky eater if needed. I also like how it helps portion the size a little easier.

  19. What a fantastic recipe! They look sooooo good. We are making them this weekend and I cannot wait!

  20. Super cute idea to make these with WonTon wrappers. I bet they freeze nicely and would be handy for lunches πŸ™‚

  21. I love these and they would be great for children. I love to change it up every once in a while and add sweet sausage. Which would be great in these as well

  22. I love this idea. I like to spend a day making meals and then putting most of them in the freezer, so there is always something tasty and nutritious on hand when we are in a hurry and don’t have time to cook.

  23. I would have to restrict how many of these I made or I could end up eating lots or fighting with my husband who gets to eat them

  24. These would be a good appetizer for a party. I believe in serving nice, hearty food. No tiny appies for me! Lol!

  25. I’ve often thought about writing a book about all the things you can make in a muffin pan. You really can make almost everything. Meatloaf is a favourite around these parts. I’ve also got a pretty stellar repertoire when it comes to making cup shaped desserts with phylo sheets.

  26. I like the idea of using wonton wrappers. You could fill the cups with anything you wanted!

  27. i would have never thought about making lasagna like this! maybe my kiddies will eat it!

  28. I made these for a holiday party. They were a HUGE hit. I used diced tomatoes flavored with basil and oregano instead of the crushed tomatoes. I had to cook them for 13 minutes instead of 10. It is very important to thoroughly spray the pan with cooking spray. I was lazy about it and had some sticking issues. It is also a good tip to let them sit for 5 minutes before serving. I kept these warm for 30 minutes in the warmed oven after I pulled them out and turned the oven off. They came out great, everyone said they were seasoned perfectly! Thank you!

  29. Yes, this recipe looks very easy and delicious. But can you explain to me how on earth you can come up with β€œ768” grams of carbohydrates???? That seems unbelievable. Going to check out the wrappers in the store, just don’t believe they can contain more carbs than a pizza.

    1. Hi Rota. Yes, that is wrong. the calorie counter listed is a third party app, and if they are glitching, I have no control over that. Hopefully it works itself out soon. Sigh.
