These Mini Spinach and Ricotta Lasagna Cups taste just like lasagna but a mini version! They take minutes to make and everyone will be sure to love them!
Well these Mini Spinach and Ricotta Lasagna Cups 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.
Each wonton wrapper is placed in a cupcake tin and layered with a creamy ricotta spinach mixture…
Then topped with delicious marinara sauce..
And lastly, the be part…these bites get topped with mozzarella cheese! These bake to perfection and get topped with fresh basil! Enjoy these mini Lasagnas while they are warm and the cheese is gooey.
CAN I ADD MEAT TO THIS RECIPE?
Yes 100%, you can definitely add meat! Ground turkey, beef, or sausage would all be great additions to this Italian recipe and it would make it a bit more hearty if you are wanting more protein.
