What's for Dinner? Lasagna Cupcakes

I love it when a recipe turns out great for the whole family.  It is really easy to please my oldest, mostly  easy to please the youngest  and hard to please my middle girl.  But, I think she was the first to say it was yummy.  Win-win!!

Spaghetti sauce, 1-2 cups
3/4 lb ground beef
12 wonton wrappers
8 oz shredded mozzarella
3 oz Parmesan cheese
4 oz cottage cheese 
I added 1-2 cloves minced garlic

*you can use ricotta cheese, but I always use cottage cheese to make lasagna*

These were so easy and yummy to make. 

Brown your meat, season with salt & pepper, add minced garlic & spaghetti sauce

 Preheat oven to 375.
Spray your muffin tin with cooking spray.

I cut wonton wrappers into circles (using a glass) and placed them into a greased muffin tin.
This time I ended up using my Pampered Chef sandwich press, the mason jar lid wasn't working too well.

After cutting, place wonton wrapper in greased muffin tin

Layer Parmesan, cottage cheese & mozzarella cheese

Layer browned beef on top

Add another layer of Parmesan, cottage cheese & mozzarella

One more layer of beef, mozzarella & top with Parmesan

Bake for 20 minutes at 375.
Cool for 5 minutes before serving.

I should have let them sit a little more before serving, only one turned out looking like an actual cupcake.
The rest were blobs.
But blobs taste just as good.
We were hungry.

The original idea came from here - I realize hers look better.
