What's for Dinner? Lasagna Cupcakes

I've been wanting to give these a try for awhile now. I've actually had the stuff sitting around for a couple of weeks too. Tonight however I decided to try and make some ravioli with the won-ton wrappers. I made a couple of them and boiled them and the taste of the cheese was fantastic but the boiled won-ton wrappers...not so much so I decided to go ahead with a meatless Lasagna cupcake.

Lasagna Cupcakes
won-ton wrappers
1 Cup ricotta cheese(I used an organic ricotta and I have to say the taste of this was out of this world. I've noticed a huge difference in different types of ricotta cheese so buy a good quality cheese.
a couple handfuls of fresh spinach
small amount of diced onion (1/8 cup)
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese + extra for topping
1/4 cup Parmesan
jar or homemade pasta sauce

Saute spinach and onion until just wilted.
Mix ricotta with egg mozzarella and parmesean add seasonings to taste. Garlic salt or powder and pepper.

Spray muffin tin and press one won-ton wrapper in and up the sides. Add cheese mixture, spoonful of pasta sauce and another won-ton wrapper and repeat cheese and sauce. Top with a little mozzerella.
Bake at 375 deg. oven until brown crispy and delicisous looking! 15-20 minutes

These were seriously very good. All the flavor of lasagna with none of the hassle. They recipe above made 6 muffins which I would say 2-3 servings depending on whose eating. I served these to my youngest son (almost 15) who thought they were very good also. I will defiantly be making this again...soon.

That sounds sooooo good, I am adding it to the list of possiblities!!!

I talked to my friend Jason, I am not going to the hardcore extreme, I need my milk, so I am keeping dairy products and eggs, going the no meat route.
