I absolutely love Wonton Wrappers. I absolutely love wonton wrappers. These small squares of dough are perfectly sized to create crispy cups to hold all types of goodness, even lasagna bites. Because of their thinness, they bake super fast. You can fill them with really anything you want from salads to desserts. These lasagna bites are perfect single serving portions. I mean really, who doesn’t like Mini Lasagna?
These cups are so delicious and full with flavor. Although there is no pasta in this recipe, the wontons are a great replacement and almost taste like it. The top of the cups and the cheese get crispy just like the best part of lasagna.
Makes 12 Cups
What You’ll Need:
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 Italian sausage links, casing removed
- 1 cup marinara sauce, homemade or store-bought
- 1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 24 2-inch won ton wrappers
- 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
- Mini Muffin Tin
What To Do:
First, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Coat your mini muffin tin with nonstick spray. Put olive oil in the pan and cook the Italian sausage until browned, about 3-5 minutes
Yes my nails match my pan :)
Drain excess any fat and stir in the sauce. While thats cooking, season you ricotta with salt and pepper.
Fill your mini muffin in with wonton wrapper into each making sure to leave a large enough opening in the center.
Fill each cup up. Layer the ricotta cheese first, then a tablespoon marinara and last mozzarella cheese. I sprinkled some parm on them too.
Bake for about 10 or until you see the wonton wrappers are browning and the cheese has melted.
Garnished with parsley and Enjoy!
