Cupcake Lasagna




Tomato Sauce


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Prepare tomato sauce.
  3. Tomato Sauce: Sauté garlic in heated olive oil until lightly browned.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and stir frequently over medium heat for 5-7 minutes.
  5. Lower heat to simmer and cook for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. May be made in advance.
  6. For the lasagna, heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat.
  7. Add garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring frequently, until garlic is golden, about five minutes.
  8. Remove and discard garlic.
  9. Add spinach, a handful at a time, and stir-fry until it wilts, about three minutes.
  10. Add lemon juice, then transfer the spinach to a colander set over a bowl to drain.
  11. Reserve 8 tablespoons of Parmesan and 8 tablespoons of mozzarella - this will be the topping later.
  12. To assemble the lasagna, line each section of an 8-cup nonstick muffin pan with a round wonton wrapper.
  13. Put a little Parmesan, a little mozzarella, and a little ricotta into each mold.
  14. Top with a little spinach and a spoonful of sauce.
  15. Repeat layers of wonton wrappers, three cheeses, spinach, and tomato sauce, creating six layers in all, and ending with sauce. Sprinkle each with reserved Parmesan and mozzarella on top.
  16. Bake until nicely browned, about 20 minutes.
  17. Add basil leaves for garnish.

Yield: 8 servings; 4 cups sauce
