Fun With Wonton Wrappers: Skinny Lasagna Cups Recipe

If you have not tried cooking with wonton wrappers– you do not know what you are missing out on. Wonton wrappers have quickly become my new obsession.

Wonton wrapper recipes rock for several reasons:

1. Super crazy easy. You can find wonton wrappers in your local grocery store- 60 to pack!
2. Low cal portion control. Just 150 calories for 8! Weight Watchers recommends trying different recipes for wonton wrappers!
3. Kids love finger foods! I don’t know about your kids, but mine will eat anything that looks like a snack.
4. They make you look fancy at parties. You can make desserts or appetizers with wonton wrappers and look like you’re a super fancy cook, even if you (like me)  are not.

But what I really love, is that you can basically fill them with just about anything you are craving, get your fix and not walk away from the table hating yourself because you feel like you are about to explode. I even got my chocolate fix and created a jelly-ring wonton!! … I’ll share that next time.

Today, I am sharing my new fave–
