      Lasagna cups! I have to tell you guys, I had a lot of fun with this recipe! I had a blast making these with my niece and turning this idea into dinner the other day. Who doesn’t love a pasta cup filled with delicious sauce and ooey gooey cheese? I think I could say that EVERYONE falls under this category. Oh mama are these good. If you like lasagna, then you will love these. Basically, this is just the super cute version of plain ol’ lasagna. All the same stuff you would typically see in the making of a regular lasagna, just with a little more prep work. More or less, this is a method you can adopt while still using the lasagna recipe that everyone is used to. OR try my version out! Feel free to add in or omit anything you’d like. Make this your own. That’s the beauty of cooking! Quick note: I used a new product called cooking cream {a Philadelphia product}. If you can’t find it in your store, just add in more ricotta! Hope you like this one, guys! We all certainly did! Happy hump day! Lasagna Cups yield: 12  Print This Recipe Ingredients: for the sauce- 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 large onion 1/2 pound lean ground beef cooked and drained 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped 1 small zucchini, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 1-6 oz. can tomato paste 1-8 oz. can tomato sauce {+1/2 can water to wash out can} 1-14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes 1 tablespoon dried basil 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano 1 bay leaf 1 teaspoon sugar salt & pepper to taste for the cheese filling- 1-10 oz. tub Philadelphia Italian Herb & Cheese Cooking Cream 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese 3/4 pound mozzarella cheese, grated & divided 1/3 cup ricotta cheese 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1 egg 21 lasagne pasta sheets Directions: For the sauce- heat olive oil over medium heat and saute onions, pepper, zucchini and garlic until tender, 5 minutes. Stir in cooked ground beef and tomato paste until well incorporated. Stir in remaining ingredients and bring to simmer. Reduce heat to low and cook 30 minutes or so. {The longer it cooks, the better it will taste!} This will be very thick. For the cheese filling- stir all ingredients together excluding half of the grated mozzarella cheese. Set aside. For the pasta- Bring large pot of salted water to boil. Cook pasta sheets 2 minutes less than package directions and drain. Place pasta on greased baking sheet until you are ready for assembly. For assembly- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 12 jumbo muffin tins with squares of parchment paper. If they don’t stay in on their own, that’s ok–the pasta will help with that. Line the edges of the muffin tins with 1 pasta sheet per cup. {Pasta sheet will overlap about 2 inches.} Spoon about 1/2 tablespoon of sauce into the bottom of each cup {#1}. Next cut 9 pasta sheets into quarters and press one of these pieces of pasta into the bottom on top of the sauce {#2}. Top pasta sheet with a generous tablespoon of sauce {#3} and then a generous tablespoon of cheese filling {#4}. Repeat this pasta-sauce-cheese layering one more time being sure to press out any air bubbles. Top these lasagna cups off with a 3rd piece of pasta, more sauce and the remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until everything is hot and bubbly. Serve hot. Don’t these scream “Eat me! Eat me!”?
