Mini Lasagna Cups

I've had these pinned on Pinterest forever, and finally got around to buying wonton wrappers (used instead of noodles).

What you'll need:

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1-2 cups spaghetti sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups cottage cheese (you can use ricotta, but we had cottage on hand and it works exactly the same and is cheaper)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano, basil
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese
How to:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Brown the ground beef in a skillet
  3. Remove from heat
  4. Add spaghetti sauce, spices, and salt to the skillet 
  5. Grease a muffin pan
  6. Line each well with 1 wonton wrapper
  7. Spoon cottage cheese, then meat/sauce into each well
  8. Repeat steps 5 and 6 two more times
  9. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of each well
  10. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes. The tips of the wonton wrappers will look crisp, but make sure the bottom is done, otherwise it will be doughy.

We served ours with french bread and a side of stir-fried asparagus.

Update: I forgot to mention that these were really good!! I liked it better than regular lasagna and I think it was a little easier to prepare. EZ had his reheated for lunch the next day and said they were still really good.
