Lasagna Cupcakes

I came across this recipe on Pinterest via The Girl Who Ate Everything. This recipe is super easy to follow, I adjusted it slightly to make more of them. These little lasagnas would be great as an appetizer at a party or an easy dinner to prep at home to take to someone for a meal. You can find the recipe here to make 6 cupcakes or follow along below; I made 18 standard sized lasagna cupcakes.You could also alter the recipe to make your favorite kind of lasagna.


  • 16 oz jar of marinara sauce or 2 cups of homemade marinara sauce.
  • 1 lb of ground beef or turkey
  • 36 wonton wrappers (find in the produce section of the grocery store, in the refrigerated section)
  • 8-12 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 1/4 cups freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • Basil, for garnish (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease your muffin tins.

2. Brown your ground beef or turkey over medium high heat until browned. Add Salt and Pepper.

3. Cut wonton wrappers with a drinking glass or round cookie cutter.

4. Start layering your lasagna cupcakes. First place a wonton wrapper into the bottom of each muffin tin. Sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese, Ricotta cheese, and mozzarella cheese on top. Then top with some meat and marinara sauce. You can add the ingredients to your taste. I added about 1-2 teaspoons of the cheeses and about 1-2 tablespoons of the meat and sauce for each layer.

5. Repeat step 4 and once you end with the marinara sauce you will add more Parmesan and mozzarella cheese on top of each cupcake.

6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.

7. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the muffin tins. Run a knife along the edges to loosen.

8. Garnish with basil and serve.
