Well….this may be the easiest dinner I have whipped up. I had leftover wonton wrappers from my Baked Crab Rangoon recipe so I used the leftover wrappers to make these little cuties! You can also enjoy these with meat such as ground beef or sausage! Just add it to the ricotta filling and you have yourself a nice wholesome meal.
This is everything you want in a lasagna, except it is in a mini version. Every bite is cheesy and filled with lasagna goodness.
24 wonton wrappers
4 cups of fresh spinach (about 1 bag)
3 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup ricotta
1 cup of fresh marinara sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 cloves of fresh garlic; chopped
1 cup of shredded mozarella cheese
5 leaves of fresh sliced basil (to garnish)
- Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium sauce pan sautee spinach by adding olive oil, garlic, and spinach. Sautee until spinach is wilted. Season with salt and pepper.
- In a cupcake pan, spray the bottoms with cooking spray, then add wrappers accordingly.
- In a medium bowl, mix in the cooked spinach and ricotta. Then add salt and pepper to taste. With teasoon, spoon in about 1 tablespoon of ricotta filling to the wrappers. Then top with about 1 tablespoon of marinara sauce, then sprinkle with mozarella cheese (about another tablespoon). Repeat until you are out of ingridients.
- Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until cheese if completely melted and bubbly. Sprinkle with freshly sliced basil and enjoy these cuties! 🙂
