Mini Lasagna Cups

No one has posted in a while. I found this recipe here and it was a huge hit so I thought i would share.

Mini Lasagna Cups
1/2 ground meat (beef, turkey, sausage)
2 c. spaghetti sauce
1 1/2 - 2 c. cottage cheese
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
24 wonton wrappers
1 c. Mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brown meat in a skillet and drain. Add spaghetti sauce to meat and stir to combine.

In a bowl combine cottage cheese with salt and pepper.

Coat a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray and arrange a wonton wrapper in each cup. Take 1/2 the cottage cheese mixture and divide it among the cups (1-2 tsp.). Top with half the meat mixture (again 1-2 tsp.) and sprinkle some mozzarella on top of that. Place another wonton wrapper over the cheese and repeat the layers cottage cheese, meat mixture, top with cheese.

Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melted and the wonton wrappers are golden. Cool in muffin tin for 5-10 minutes before serving. This helps them keep their shape.

Makes 12 mini lasagnas or 3 servings.

*The recipe called for ricotta but since it is too pricey I tried cottage cheese and it worked. Also, I used Hunt's spaghetti sauce and eliminated the browning meat step. I will definitely be using this recipe again.
