Lasagna Cupcakes

This month, Food and Wine had an amazing recipe for white lasagna cupcakes.  Inspired by this recipe, I decided to use my typical veggie lasagna recipe to make my own lasagna cupcakes.  It took a couple of tries, but this recipe was a big hit at my holiday work party, and there are tons of different ways you could make them.  I think next time I will try adding some lean ground beef for a more typical lasagna.  However, the best part of these lasagna cupcakes are that they  are incredibly simple to make, but feel really special and fun whether you just have them at home or serve them at a party.

Ingredients
24 wonton wrappers
1 1/4 cup spaghetti sauce (I use Eden Organic which has 1 point per  1/2 cup)
3/4 cup part skim mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup part skim ricotta cheese
4 tbsp parmesan cheese
1 tsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves
1/2 zucchini finely chopped
1 red pepper finely chopped
1/2 cup spinach, drained or 3 cups fresh spinach
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
1.Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

2. Heat the olive oil over medium heat and add the garlic and red pepper flakes.  Once it become fragrant, add the peppers, zucchini, spinach, basil, salt, and pepper.   Saute until just tender.

3. Spray the muffin tin with non fat cooking spray and press 1 wonton wrapper into each muffin cup.  Then place a spread a thin layer of ricotta cheese on top of the wonton wrappers.  Sprinkle with mozzarella and parmesan cheese.  Add in a spoonful of the vegetable mixture and then a spoonful of sauce.  Then press in another wonton wrapper and repeat.  Sprinkle some extra mozzarella and parmesan on the tops before placing in the oven.

4.  Bake for 20-25 minutes until cheese is melted on top and the edges of the wonton skins begin to brown.  Enjoy!  These are great as a main dish with a salad and make a great appetizer at a party.

      Thanks so much! They are one of my favorite recipes for parties. I think I may try out some new variations this New Years – maybe some with roasted veggies or a traditional meat filling.

    I made these last weekend and LOVED them! Husband loved them too. Will make for company too as a ‘side’ dish. I steamed the veggies to make them even more diet-friendly and you didn’t even notice. Would you know what the calorie/fat count is per muffin with the recipe as is?
