  3. Divide meat mixture into cups, top with ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Bake 18-20 minutes or until cups are lightly browned.

Makes 6 servings.

Serve with a garden salad.

Make Ahead & Freeze: Place beef in a quart freezer bag. Place next 2 ingredients in a quart freezer bag. Place both bags in a gallon freezer bag. Seal well, label and freeze. Thaw completely. Continue with step 1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Delicious The whole family loved these Lasagna Cups. They were very easy to make and a fun twist on a classic dinner. We did substitute for turkey instead of beef, which the kids didn’t even notice. So win! I definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Individual serving lasagna? Yes please! I love this recipe because I don't have to spend a ton of time or money making a large pan of lasagna that will only be eaten for a night or two and then thrown away. Making these little lasagna cups is easy and fast! They freeze great and can be reheated in a minute in the microwave. They are perfect for a quick lunch, snack or meal.
