Wonton Mini Lasagna Cups are what you need for a quick and delicious party appetizer. Fun to make and easy to eat!

Wonton mini lasagna cups

As I told you before, some weeks ago it was my mother-in-law’s birthday and I made this caramel cake, which really was the best ever. For dinner we had mushroom soup and these Wonton mini lasagna cups.

I wanted to make something delicious, easy, and not time consuming. Something that was fun to make but didn’t require lots of work because I already had my caramel cake to take care of therefore I didn’t want to make something that would stress me out. These Wonton cups are exactly what I wanted. They are crowd pleasers, easy to make and part of it can be made ahead.

Though I was not really thinking about making something budge-friendly, but these turned out to be budget friendly too. Wonton wrappers can be found in Asian food aisle (the cold ones) next to egg rolls and close to tofu. They cost less than 3 dollars for a whole pack which has 48 wonton wrappers and that’s what you need to make 24 lasagna cups.

For the filling, I used almost the same filling as the filling I used for these stuffed potato patties, but I changed it a bit to give it some lasagna kick. I also used ricotta cheese which I am getting obsessed with because it’s so creamy and goes with savory and sweet food, plus it gives a creamy texture to the food.

What I like about these lasagna cups is that they get ready in 10 minutes. So if you manage to make the filling the day before, the whole thing will take almost 20 minutes from start to finish to bring a beautiful nutritious food to the table and isn’t that what every busy family wants?

I have already mentioned the fact that we are fat and calorie conscious people in most occasions so here I have used a modest amount of none-fat ricotta and mozzarella and the least amount of oil possible, but if you like more cheese in your lasagna cups, please go for it because more cheese is always better and we all know that!

    look great but need to assemble them ahead of time for a party … can’t wait until the last minute to put together, especially if they are appetizers … can these be assembled in the morning and then just baked right before people come … never like the look of food that is reheated to serve especially things like these that are topped with cheese…

    1. Hi Becky, Yes you can assemble them ahead of time and simply bake them when you’re ready to serve.
