Lasagna Wonton Cups

Lasagna Wonton Cups

This is the easiest lasagna you will ever make. The convenient toddler-sized single-serving portions are perfect for small stomachs and packed lunches. Our meat sauce recipe makes a double batch, so you can freeze half for a second dinner on a different day.

Makes 12

Good to Know: 

  • The beef and tomato sauce mixture will make enough for a double batch of lasagna wonton cups. Feel free to freeze the remaining sauce for up to 3 months, saving it for another dinner.
  • Wonton wrappers can be found in the refrigerated section of the produce aisle (where you would find soups, salad dressings, and containers of baby spinach or mixed greens). They are typically sold in packs of 56 so you can freeze what you don’t use, saving them for a second supper as well.

You’ll Need

  • 1 398 mL can Hunt's Heirloom Crushed Tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb. ground beef (or turkey)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp kosher salt, divided
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 ½ cups ricotta cheese
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 1 ½ cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • Chopped parsley, for garnish

Prep and Cook

  • Preheat oven to 375°F and oil a standard muffin pan, or coat with non-stick spray.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Add the beef and cook, breaking it up with the back of a wooden spoon, for 5-7 minutes or until no longer pink. Drain off any excess fat if necessary, and return the skillet to the stove.
  • Add the garlic, oregano, 1 teaspoon of salt, sugar, and tomato paste and stir to combine. Cook for 1 minute more. Add the Hunt's Heirloom Crushed Tomatoes and Worcestershire sauce, stir and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.
  • Season ricotta cheese with remaining teaspoon of salt and mix well. Set aside.
  • Press a wonton wrapper into each of the 12 muffins wells. Top with one tablespoon each of the ricotta, beef and tomato sauce, and mozzarella. Repeat with one more layer of each ingredient: wonton wrapper, ricotta, beef and tomato sauce, and mozzarella.
  • Place muffin tin into the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the wonton wrappers are crisp and golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes in the muffin pan and garnish with parsley, if desired, before serving.

    Any luck freezing these lasagna wonton cups once already baked?

    Hi Dawn, we haven’t tried yet, but I don’t see why not! You can freeze regular lasagna and you can freeze wonton wrappers, so we say go for it!

    Hi! Could this be prepped the night before, or would the wontons become soggy?

      Hi Lisa,
      Our Food Editor tells me that they can be made and baked and then frozen for a make-ahead dish, but she advises against assembling them ahead and storing them in the fridge unbaked because the wrappers could go slightly mushy.

    Perhaps it’s best not to prep the night before.

    I tried freezing them the night before, but the taste turned out different.
