Lasagna Cupcakes

These are wonderful little snacks: they're essentially Lasagna to go. It's Lasagna. Small. To go. What's not to love?

You'll need to prepare your favourite bolognesa recipe beforehand.


  • Muffin pan
  • puff pastry
  • Bolognesa sauce
  • lasagna sheets, ideally fresh
  • shredded cheese
  • some butter


  • Butter the muffin pan liberally
  • Put a piece of puff pastry into each muffin indentation. I've used square pieces and it worked well.
  • Break/cut the lasagna sheets into parts that fit your muffin forms.
  • Stack bolognesa sauce and pasta into each muffin form.
  • Top with a bit of shredded cheese.
  • If your puff pastry doesn't exactly fit the form, fold the overhang over the stacked insides.
  • Bake for ~30 minutes at 190-220° C. You can increase temperature at the end to brown the cheese.
  • Let the cakes cool a bit before taking them out of the form.

They'll be solid enough not to deflate and you'll have amazing little Lasagna snacks.
