Mini Lasagna Cups are the perfect appetizer for your party, or even a new easy way to serve lasagna with dinner! So delicious and so much fun!

I know how much you guys love my lasagna recipe. You rave about my stuffed chicken lasagna, every day I get a new comment for my most amazing lasagna, and people swear they’ll never use another recipe again. See how you guys like my lasagna recipe, I think this recipe is perfect.

These mini lasagna cups are so much fun. They even have delicious layers. They’re also easy to put together and require only a handful of ingredients. Easier and simpler to make than whole lasagna, but still tastes just as good. In fact, my son couldn’t get enough of them, saying they were better than the regular lasagna I had.

I chose to use lasagna pasta sheets for my lasagna cups. If you need a quick, easier option, you can always use wonton wrappers. Just slide one on the bottom and layer on bolognese, cheese, and more bolognese. You won’t get the same clean layers, but it will save you a few minutes. I still recommend taking the extra time to make layers.

This recipe calls for ground Italian sausage. If you don’t eat pork, or need to stay away from sausage for other reasons, you can always use an equal amount of ground beef. I recommend using lean ground beef like 93/7 to reduce the fat.

Pro tip: Fresh shredded cheese melts better than the pre-shredded bagged cheese you get at the grocery store. Why? Chemicals are added to pre-shredded cheese to keep it from clumping and sticking together, and to prevent mold. These chemicals interfere with melting. For best results, always use fresh shredded or grated cheese in recipes, especially those that call for melting.
