Lasagna Cupcake Recipe of 02-12-2015 [Updated on 09-08-2017]
Cupcake lasagna is a nice idea for a single portion appetizer or a choreographic first course, depending on how many cupcakes you serve your guests. These are small mini lasagna prepared and cooked in muffin molds, of which I have seen the photos on some American blogs. I preferred to prepare them very simply with a quick ragù, to which I gave a touch of novelty using crumbled sausage instead of minced meat, and a little béchamel with parmesan, but obviously they can be adapted to your tastes, possibly also making them in a lighter version, with vegetables and vegan bechamel. I am still here in Milan, yesterday in addition to meeting business contacts at the fair, I had the pleasure of meeting some misyan friends including Elisabetta and meeting Sammy again after a year. I have to admit, Milan enters my heart more and more! Girls, I leave you to my single-portion lasagna and I wish you a good day, I'm going to have another half day at the IAB and then I return home to Ely, kisses to those who pass by; *
How to make cupcake lasagna
Start by preparing chopped onion and carrot and letting it dry in a pan with oil.
Also add the crumbled sausage and fry it.
Then add the tomato puree, season with salt and reduce for an hour.
Blanch the lasagna sheets in a large pot of boiling salted water, placing them gradually on a clean cloth.
Cut out the sheets to cover the buttered mold internally. The size depends on the size of the mold: the sheets must be long enough to let the edges of dough come out of the molds.
Cover the bottom with a couple of teaspoons of meat sauce.
Cut out some lasagna rounds that are suitable for the muffin tin: you will need 3 for each cupcake.
Add a round of puff pastry and then a layer of béchamel and parmesan.
Place another round of puff pastry on top and cover it with the ragù.
Close the cupcakes with a final round of dough, covering it with béchamel and parmesan.
Bake the cupcake lasagna in a convection oven preheated to 200 ° C for about 20 minutes or until the edges of the dough and the surface begin to brown.
Let it cool and then serve.

I am a blogger and musician but my passions are cooking, hands dirty with flour and the smell of cake!
- 5 ounces spinach - rinsed, stemmed, and dried

- 1 stalk celery, diced
- 1 onion, diced
- 3 ½ ounces lean ground pork
- 3 ½ ounces lean ground beef
- 3 ½ ounces minced ham

- 1 pinch ground nutmeg
- 1 ⅔ cups grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 pint ricotta cheese
- 3 tablespoons butter
For the pasta dough: Steam the spinach in a steamer or over boiling water until bright green, 2 minutes. Squeeze to remove excess moisture and process in a food processor to make a paste. Combine spinach with eggs, semolina, and salt and process until smooth. Stir in enough of the flour to make a smooth dough. Knead briefly, cover and set aside.
For the ragu: In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Saute bacon, carrot, celery and onion until onion is translucent. Stir in ground pork, ground beef and minced ham, and cook until browned. Stir in tomato paste, oregano and beef stock. (Reserve the chicken livers for later.) Season with salt and pepper, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 20 minutes.
For the bechamel: While the ragu is simmering, combine 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons flour in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk to make a roux. Remove from heat, let rest one minute, then whisk in warm milk. Return to heat, simmer 10 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened. Season with salt and nutmeg. Remove from heat.
To cook pasta: Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. On a floured surface, divide pasta dough into three portions. Roll each portion out to a thin sheet. Have ready an ice water bath. Cook each sheet 3 minutes in the boiling water remove from the boiling water and dip in the ice water drain and dry on a clean, dry cloth.
To finish the ragu: Stir the chicken livers into the simmering sauce. Cook 1 minute, remove from heat and set aside.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 baking dish.
To assemble lasagna: Place one pasta sheet in bottom of prepared baking dish. Spread one-third of the ragu, one-quarter of the bechamel, one-third of the ricotta, and one-quarter of the parmesan over the pasta. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining bechamel and parmesan and dot with butter.

For this Sunday I tried to prepare a recipe by Sonia di Giallozafferano: cupcake lasagna. I liked the idea of single portions of lasagna and I liked the idea of combining it with the shape of cupcakes that I usually make desserts.
For the pasta I used the ready-made one and the béchamel I prepared myself following this recipe
Ingredients for 6 cupcakes:
6 sheets of egg pasta (I used the dry ready ones)
About 300 grams of meat sauce (I was lucky enough to have it ready made by my boyfriend's mother)
bechamel with the quantities shown in this recipe
I blanched the pasta to be able to cut it with the pastry cutter
Greased the molds and started cutting some discs and strips of dough. I cperto with the base the disk and with strips of dough the edges of the molds. I filled each mold with a spoonful of bechamel, one of meat sauce and a grated cheese. A second disk of pasta and another layer of béchamel, one of meat sauce and a grated cheese. I made cupcake lasagna the afternoon before so I just have to inform them the next morning.
For cooking I preheated the oven to 160 ° and I cooked them for 40 minutes
These single portions of cupcake lasagna are also convenient to freeze raw and take out in case of need (perhaps for a dinner with friends where you have to prepare more dishes, even a small portion of cupcake can suffice!)
Ingredients for cupcake lasagna
In a saucepan, brown the onion and carrot.
Add the crumbled sausages and brown.
Deglaze with the white wine.
When it has evaporated, add the tomato puree and a little salt. Cook for about half an hour, leaving the lid slightly raised and stirring occasionally.
In the meantime, prepare the egg pasta. In a bowl, sift the flour, arrange in a heap and place the egg in the center.
Mix everything until you get a homogeneous mixture. Wrap in plastic wrap and let it rest for thirty minutes at room temperature.
Roll out the dough with a rolling pin or, even better, with the pasta machine. You will need to obtain a very thin, almost transparent sheet.
Obtain some squares a little bigger than the molds you are going to use, I made 7 of them.
And of the discs, a little smaller than the diameter of the molds, I made 14.
Cook the sheets for a maximum of one minute in salted water. I cooked a few at a time and I added a little oil to the water, to prevent them from sticking together. As you lift them, place them on a plate or on a clean cloth, without overlapping them.
Grease the molds with a little oil and place the square sheets. It doesn't matter if they don't stick to the edges right away, you'll think about it after adding the filling.
Mix the sausage sauce with the bechamel.
Pour a little of the sauce into the cups and a little of the mozzarella.
Close with a disk and mash well, in this way the square sheets should begin to adhere well to the molds.
Continue alternating sauce and puff pastry, and finish with a little seasoning. Sprinkle with Parmesan, pepper and a drizzle of oil.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180 ° for about 20 minutes.
Let it cool before removing your cupcake lasagna from the molds.
