Pin It
These lasagna cupcakes were such success, not only with how good they were, but how little calories and carbs there were!

Lasagna Cupcakes Recipe:

What you need:

-Cupcake pan (mine makes 12)
-24 won ton wrappers (basically two for each cupcake)
-1 block frozen spinach, cooked and drained
-3/4c ricotta cheese, reduced fat
-1 zucchini sauteed in olive oil (bite size pieces)
-1/2lb cooked ground turkey
-1 1/2c shredded mozzarella cheese
-1/2c shredded Parmesan cheese
 -1 jar of your favorite spagetti sauce
-dried basil


Preheat the oven to 375.

In a bowl, mix the ricotta cheese and spinach.

In another bowl, mix the turkey, zucchini, and spaghetti sauce. Save about a cup to a cup and a half of sauce for later. 

Spray the cupcake pan with non stick cooking spray. Place a won ton wrapper in each cupcake hole, as if it were a cupcake liner. (It will not cover all of the sides yet). Using a spoon, put the ricotta spinach mixture as the bottom layer, just enough to cover the bottom. Then top with another won ton wrapper.

Place a scoop of the turkey mixture next. Then cover with the reserved sauce.

Top each cupcake with the mozzarella cheese, Parmesan, and sprinkle of basil!

Cook for about 20minutes or until cheese is brown and bubbly.

Use a spoon to take out of the pan, let it cool for 5-7 minutes.


  1. Love the recipe but being a sleever one must also watch the store bought sauces as they are HIGH in sugars.

    1. The Mario Battali sauces have less sugar than most others.

  2. Sound like a great recipe. Hope to try it as soon as I am in phase 5

  3. What is the calorie, carb, fat count?

  4. Size pasta sauce depends how much you've using and making an 18oz jar should be enough as far as fat, calories, carbs, and stuff get the stuff figure what your using and do the maths already. 4 grade math will get you theu it. Honeatly people. Why do you want aomeone else to do this for you? It all depends how much and what you use. If you can't figure out that you're doomed.

    1. Well, maybe you need to learn how to spell and complete your sentences. What you wrote is so much less than a 4th grader. Maybe you're the one who is doomed.......

    2. Great recipe ...will try this and see if it tastes as good nuked in the microwave at work too..thank you for the idea

  5. This sounds great - thanks so much for sharing the recipe.

  6. To The one who is correcting the spelling and making comments on completing your sentences. What the matter with you? Are you so small that you must make comments. I hope you find other avenues and stop being cruel.

  7. What in tarnation?

  8. We are making this tonight for dinner - but could you somehow make this easy to print out?? I need to add it to my book!

    Thanks!n - OH...and I'm making my own sugar!

    1. I'm not a good cook,would you share how to make your own sauce...with no sugar?

  9. They taste as good as they look. Great recipe and fairly easy. Thank you!

  10. This sounds yummy and i make my own pasta sauce from scratch ..

    1. Hi! I had a sleeve done 3 years ago and lost 169 pounds...keeping 160 off...fighting for the last nine. With that said, would you be willing to share how you make your sauce? You can IM me at

    1. I froze mine BEFORE baking, just popped the whole pan in let them freeze then put in bags. When I wanted one I put it in the pan and baked.

    2. Going to try this one. Thanks for posting.

    3. I froze them in 3 per baggie after cooking. Not attractive :), but taste delish!

  12. What is the protien count? Ill try this. Maybe use italian flavored ground turkey for more flavor. Thank you.

  13. How many grams of carbs/fat/sugars/proteins?

  14. Here is a recipe that a friend gave me. She is 100% Italian.
    3 - 12oz. cans tomato paste
    1 - 15 oz. can tomato sauce
    1 bay leaf
    2 tsp. oregano
    2 tsp. basil
    1/2 tsp. rosemary
    1/2 tsp. thyme
    1 onion, chopped
    1 whole head of garlic, peeled and minced
    2-3 tbsp. sugar
    2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
    dry red wine (1 tomato paste can full)
    salt and pepper to taste
    8 tomato paste cans of water
    1/2 cup parmesan cheese
    In a large soup pot, saute chopped onion and garlic in the olive oil
    until softened. Add the tomato paste and cook in the oil, garlic and
    onion mixture for a few minutes (this helps to keep it from sticking).
    Add sauce, water, wine and remainder of seasonings. Sprinkle grated
    parmesan cheese all over the top of sauce and blend in. Bring to a -
    boil, reduce heat to a slow simmer. Cook for at least four hours.
    You can use this sauce for everything. It freezes beautifully!
