Family Cooks Individual lasagna

One of my favorite cookbooks is the Family Cooks. They have a fun website also. We have made numerous recipes that we have loved but this one is a favorite of ours. It is personal lasagna made in a cupcake tin. You can put it in a 9 X 9 and bake if you like but they individuals are so fun. Children can make this recipe! Bonus.

Ravioli Cupcakes
Makes 12

2 Tb olive oil
1/2 medium onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
10 oz frozen chopped spinach (thawed and squeezed but not dry)
24 large round frozen ravioli (I used cheese)
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
4 cups tomato sauce (or spaghetti sauce)
1 1/2 cup grated mozzarella

1. Preheat oven 400 degrees.
2. Boil ravioli for half the time given in the directions. Drain well.
3. Heat olive oil and add spinach and garlic together. When warm take off heat and let cool. Add egg and Parmesan cheese into spinach.
4. Spoon 1 Tb of sauce into muffin cups. Top with ravioli. Top with spinach then mozzarella cheese. Tuck a ravioli on top and finally a spoonful of sauce. I added more spinach on top.
5. Bake 20 minute until bubbly.
6. Serve with remaining sauce that is heated up.
