Mini Meatball Lasagna Cups Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 12oz. package al fresco Tomato & Basil Chicken Meatballs
  • 1 1/2 cups part skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup spaghetti sauce<
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • fresh basil (optional)

Instructions:

  1. 1Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly coat a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl add the ricotta cheese, parsley, salt and pepper, stir until blended.
  3. Place a wonton wrapper in the bottom of each cup. Using half of the ricotta cheese mixture divide it among the 12 cups, then top with spaghetti sauce ( I used approx. a teaspoon in each). Using half the mozzarella cheese sprinkle it over the sauce.
  4. Place another wonton wrapper over the cheese, I placed it in the opposite direction of the first to expose more corners. Add remaining ricotta cheese to each cup. Place a meatball on top of ricotta ( there are four extra meatballs I refrigerated to use later) add another layer of sauce and remaining mozzarella cheese.
  5. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until cheese is melted and wonton wrappers begin to brown. Sprinkle with fresh basil.

  1. A quick question – I am tasked with bringing something to an event that is 3-4 hours away. I would love to make these, but I’m not sure if they would travel well. Do you think they will get too soggy?
    I don’t want to assemble them when I arrive.

  2. THESE LOOK ABSOLUTELY SCRUMPTIOUS,ii WILL MAKE THEM FOR OUR THANKSGIVING DINNER, i WILL FORWARD A COMMENT AFTER TASTING & SERVING THEM TO FAMILY.

  3. Yum! These look delicious.
