Vegetarian Lasagna Cupcakes
oz firm tofu (optional)
teaspoon garlic powder
tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper, to taste
oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed by running under cold water
cup Progresso™ cannellini beans, roughly chopped
cup Muir Glen™ organic pasta sauce
Shredded 1 1/2-2 cups mozzarella cheese
Begin by gathering your ingredients and preheat the oven to 375°F.
Make the ‘ricotta’ by combining the tofu, garlic powder, milk, lemon juice, Parmesan, salt, and pepper in blender or food processor and pulsing until the mixture turns into a ricotta consistency. Set aside. (If you prefer you can skip the tofu and just use real ricotta.)
In a large bowl combine the thawed spinach, beans, and pasta sauce.
Lightly grease a cupcake pan and press a wonton wrapper into each section.
Top that with a teaspoon of tofu ricotta, followed by a little mozzarella, and then a tablespoon of the pasta sauce mixture.
Repeat the layers (teaspoon of ricotta, mozzarella, then a tablespoon of sauce) and top with a final bit of mozzarella.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly. Let sit 5 minutes in pan before removing by using a knife around the edges to loosen each one.
