Love lasagna? Try this fun new take on the classic dish! These lasagna cups are unique and flavourful.
Ingredients
1 package lasagna noodles
½ pound ground Italian sausage
3 cloves minced garlic
1 (15 oz can) tomato sauce
1 (6 oz can) tomato paste
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 teaspoons salt, divided
15 ounces whole milk ricotta cheese
¼ teaspoon black pepper
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a standard size muffin tin. Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions. Cut 6 of them in half, lengthwise. Use a small cookie cutter to cut out 36 small circles from the remaining pasta. In a large skillet, cook ground sausage until cooked through, and no longer pink, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add in garlic, tomato sauce, tomato paste, Italian seasoning, and ½ teaspoon salt. Bring to a simmer, then remove from heat. In a medium-size mixing bowl, stir together ricotta cheese, remaining ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper.
Line the bottom of each muffin cup with 1 of the cutout pasta circles. Curl each of the long strips into a ring to line the sides of each cup. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of sauce into the bottom of each muffin cup. Top with another layer of pasta circles and 1 tablespoon of ricotta mixture. Place remaining pasta circles on and another 1 tablespoon of meat sauce. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbling and slightly browned. Serve this dish hot.
