Lasagna Cupcakes With Pesto

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

Fun Finger Food! No need to boil noodles to make this easy peasy individual wonton lasagna. I just made Lasagna Cupcakes with many changes and wanted to post this recipe as I made it. I used the Texas size cupcake pan. They are 6 large in one pan. Not the twelve. I'll be on the Cooking channel March 20th at 9:00 making these!
