Lasagna Cupcake Pies

Lasagna Cupcake Pies

Posted 2016-08-24 by finyfollow

This is a different slant on lasagna and instead of making traditional lasagna in a large dish, I have made them into cupcake pies by making them in a muffin pan!

I have also used thinner pastry than lasagna, and the result is a great blend of flavours to which I added a few chillies.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Makes: 12 cupcakes

Pasta sauce
400 g best mince
Shallot (or onion)
Few small tomatoes
Chillies (optional)
About 24 [link wonton wrappers]
225 g mozzarella cheese, grated
85 g Parmesan cheese, grated
110 g Ricotta cheese, reserving a few tbsp
Cherry tomatoes, for garnish (optional)
Lettuce, for garnish (optional)

  • Preheat the oven to 190°/170° fan forced.

  • Cook the shallot, chilli and a few tomatoes, or make the mince meat as you would normally however, do not put as much liquid as you would with an ordinary lasagna.

  • Add the mince meat and some of the pasta sauce, stir, break up the mince, and cook till it is done. This will take about 10 minutes.

  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Keep about 6 tbsp of the Parmesan and mozzarella as you need this for the topping. You can vary the amount of cheese you use in this recipe, to taste.

  • Start making the lasagnas by either lining the muffin pan with cupcakes, (I used washable silicon ones), or spraying the muffin pan.

  • Cut the wontons so they are round instead of square.

  • Line each muffin hole first with a wonton wrapper.

  • Put in a little Parmesan, a little mozzarella, and a little ricotta into each one.

  • Top with a small amount of the meat and a spoonful of the pasta sauce.

  • Repeat layers of wonton wrappers, cheeses, meat and sauce, creating as many layers as you wish - I only used two as do not like a lot of pastry.

  • Sprinkle each lasagna pie with the reserved Parmesan and mozzarella.

  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until they are browned.

  • I served them with brown rice, corn and broccoli casserole, as well as one night with Mizuma lettuce and tomatoes.

  • I also put a blob of ricotta on the top so that they resemble cupcakes!

  • Great for parties, cold in lunch boxes, and they keep well for several days.
