I'm either really hungry lately or just really into creating food because I can't stop thinking about what I'm going to make next. Maybe it's both but either way, in my next life I think I'd like to be a chef. Seriously. So yesterday, in honor of the Superbowl Sunday, I made lasagna cupcakes and a bunch of other stuff, but I need to share this recipe because it was SO good.
- small container of ricotta cheese
- grated parmesan
- grated mozzarella
- 24 wonton wrappers
- 1 store-bought tomato sauce
- 1/3lb ground turkey
- store-bought pesto (optional)
- cupcake tins for 12 cupcakes
First, brown the ground turkey, and season it with chili pepper and garlic powder (or whatever you have). Remove and set aside. Spray cupcake tins with cooking spray and line with wonton wrapper. Sprinkle with grated parm, drop a small amount of ricotta (I use part-skim), and cover it with a layer of tomato sauce and add grated moz. If you have simple kids (like I do!), cover with another wonton wrapper and add another layer, ending with grated moz. Otherwise, add cooked ground turkey over the ricotta and add a touch of pesto before the tomato sauce. Repeat.
I put them in the oven on 350 for about 15 minutes (keep on eye on them), and they looked like this:
It was fantastic. They looked intricate and pretty but so simple to make. Great the next day too. Enjoy!
