Lasagne Cupcakes

I know in the US we often spell lasagne with an 'a', but I prefer the European spelling which ends in an 'e'.

Wrappers with 1st cheese layer
Cooking spray
1/3 - 1/2 lb. ground beef
pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, fennel, salt (just a little of each)
1/2 an onion, diced
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
16 oz. can tomato sauce
oregano, basil, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper (all to taste)
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
24 circular wonton wrappers
1 3/4 c. Parmesan, grated (I didn't actually measure any of the cheeses when I made this; these amounts are from the original recipe so you have something to go by. I just eyeballed it)
1 3/4 c. mozzarella, shredded
3/4 c. ricotta
1st layer

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray; set aside.

Brown the beef in a skillet. While cooking add in the pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, fennel, and salt. When finished, set aside.

 Saute the onion in a little butter, for about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic, and saute for 1 more minute.

Add the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes to a  large bowl. Add the beef, onion, and garlic. Add in oregano, basil, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper. Add in the sugar. Stir it all together.
Starting the 2nd layer

As you start layering the cupcakes, dip each wonton wrapper into a small bowl of water. Just quickly dip in the water, then press a wonton wrapper into the bottom of each muffin tin.

Sprinkle a little Parmesan in each tin, then mozzarella, then ricotta. Top with a little of the meat sauce. Repeat all the layers again (don't forget to dip the wonton wrappers in water, one at a time).

Top each cupcake with a little more Parmesan and mozzarella. You can never have too much cheese.

Ready to eat!
Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until browned around the edges. Let sit 3-4 minutes, then you can pop them out with a spoon fairly easily. Serve hot.

Here's a link to the original recipe I adapted:
