Little Lasagna Cups

   I love lasagna, but don't make it very often and I'm not sure why?? I've been seeing these fun little lasagnas on Pinterest and since there were wonton wrappers in the fridge that needed to be used I thought I'd attempt to make some for Saturday night dinner. Although I just sort of 'wung it' they actually turned out really well. 
   Hubby was at their business booth at a farm show and since it was the last day, they had to take their display down and bring it all home. He wasn't sure how long it would take or when he'd get back, so I assembled the lasagnas and then waited to bake them until I knew he was on the way home. It all worked out well and I had dinner ready for the table when he got here. {it actually felt like quite an accomplishment because G-bug was having a grumpy evening}  

Little Lasagna Cups 
yield: 14 muffin-sized cups

28 wonton wrappers
1 lb ground beef, browned and drained
1 pint spaghetti sauce
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 cups cottage or ricotta cheese
3/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1-1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
fresh basil, chopped
In a skillet brown the ground beef seasoned with a bit of salt. Drain, return to skillet and add spaghetti sauce, dried basil, oregano and garlic powder. Simmer for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile mix together cottage or ricotta and Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.
Grease muffin tins and press 1 wonton wrapper into each cup. Spoon in about 1/2 tbsp of cottage cheese mixture and then 1 good tbsp of meat mixture. Top with another wonton wrapper, and then another layer of the cheese mixture and meat mixture. Top with grated Mozzarella. Bake @ 350* for 8-10 minutes or until wontons are golden brown and cheese is melted. Garnish with fresh basil and serve.

Whatever you do, work at it
with all your heart, as working for
the Lord, not for men, since you know
that you will receive an inheritance
from the Lord as a reward.
~Colossians 3:23+24
