Ingredients: 1 pound of Ground Turkey 1 Jar of sauce [I used low sodium, or you can make your own. I decided to go the quick method] 6 mushrooms 3 Mini peppers 2-3 small hand fulls of carrots
Chop your vegetables and set aside. Start to cook your meat. After the meat begins to brown, I add my vegetables. I like to do it at this point so that the meat has the vegetables incorporated into the meat and their flavors begin to blend together.
Next I add the mushrooms and continue to cook the meat mixture. After it has cooked to the consistency I want, I add the sauce. I used a lower sodium bottle sauce. You can use whatever sauce you like or create your own [I've done that in previous samples].
NOTE: if you want a thicker sauce continue to cook and let the sauce thicken up. Or you can add some paste to it. I was making a quick sauce so it isn't as thick as I can get it.
Once you get the sauce to the consistency you want, you are now ready to begin building your Lasagna cup. I used the Nasoya wonton wraps.
Take two of the won ton wraps. Cross them over each other [as shown in the picture to the left]. Gently push the won tons into the cupcake pan. I sprayed each cup with Pam.
Once you fill the pan you'll have a flower like look.
Add two table spoons of meat mixture to each cup. Add a little cheese. Then take another won ton and press into the cup. Add another tablespoon of sauce and cheese. [NOTE: I also made a different one, coming below]
The next 7 ones I didn't add the top layer. Instead I took 6 of these Parmesan crisps and crunched them up. I added the Mozzarella cheese, and then added the crisp on top.
I baked at 350 degrees until the won ton was crispy and the cheese was melted.
The ones with the crisp have a little crunch topping. NOTE: If you don't want any crunch, you can make sure that the won ton is completely covered by the mixture. I liked the little crunch.
I served two with a salad and a drink. The entire meal including my drink was 484 cal. One cup is 166 cal.
OPTIONS: Different types of cheeses. I love cheese. Use different types to give you a different flavor. If you have problems with cheese, try vegan cheese or non-milk based cheese.
Great for appetizers, and easy to carry for lunch.
You can do a total veggie version. I love making spinach/vegetable lasagna. You can do that with this as well.
I hope you enjoy it. Let me know if you try the recipe!
I started my health journey back in 2015 when I was over 200 pounds, on high blood pressure medicine, and getting sicker. Now at 61 I am feeling better than I did at 30. I just want to encourage you that you are worth the investment in you!
