Once Again...What to do, What to Do - The Cowboys vs. The Packers

By
Real Estate Agent with Lisa Von Domek Team TX License #0552989
As game time draws near I find that I will have to be in stealth mode if I want to watch the big game today.  My friends believe I am a jinx for the Cowboys as they don't do well if I am watching them play.  Needless to say, my Packers fans friends all want me to watch the game!
 
What to do, what to do... we'll just have to wait and see...

Total Time: 1 hr 35 min
Prep: 30 min
Inactive: 25 min
Cook: 40 min
Yield:12 cupcakes
Level:Easy

Ingredients

Meat Sauce:
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 whole cloves
One 1-inch cinnamon stick
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, finely diced (about 1 cup)
Kosher salt
1 pound mild Italian chicken sausage, casing removed
1/4 cup tomato paste
One 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
Freshly ground pepper
Ricotta Filling:
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella, plus more for topping
3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan, plus more for topping
3/4 cup part-skim ricotta
1/3 cup mango chutney
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1 package wonton wrappers (at least 48)
12 whole small fresh basil leaves
Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

For the meat sauce: In a large skillet over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil until it shimmers. Add the whole cloves and cinnamon stick, and remove after a few minutes. Add the garlic and onions, sprinkle with a little salt and saute until softened but not browned.

Add the sausage, breaking up the clumps with your spoon. Cook until the sausage is no longer pink, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and cook 1 to 2 minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes, basil, as well as some salt and pepper. Stir to combine and simmer uncovered, for about 15 minutes, stirring every now and then. Allow the meat sauce to cool, about 15 minutes, before building lasagna cupcakes. As the meat sauce is cooking, prepare the ricotta filling.

For the ricotta filling: Stir together the mozzarella, Parmesan, ricotta and mango chutney. Season with salt and lots of pepper, about a teaspoon, and set aside.

To assemble the cupcakes: Pull out your favorite cupcake pan. If your pan is not nonstick, spray the cups with cooking spray. Place a wonton wrapper in each cup. Don't worry if you're using square ones.

Drop about 1 teaspoon of meat sauce into the bottom of each cup. Then add 1 teaspoon of ricotta filling. Then cover with another wonton wrapper, rotating it about 90-degrees so that the corners of the first wrapper and the second wrapper aren't right on top of each other. Repeat this until you've built three layers total. Top each with a small basil leaf, then another wonton wrapper. Finish each cupcake with a spoonful of meat sauce, a little shredded mozzarella and pinch of grated Parmesan.

Pop them into the oven and bake for 20 minutes. When time's up, resist the temptation to eat them right away or else you'll burn your mouth! Let them rest on the counter for about 10 minutes, and they should slip out of the muffin tin easily. Top with more shredded basil if you like.

Our grandsons have their birthday party today but something tells me the TV will be on somewhere. I like to root for the underdog. Who would that be?

Hi Lisa Von Domek I guess we'll know if you watched by the outcome.

I WILL be watching. The outcome will NOT be affected by me (my) watching so I can do so without regret or guilt.

Not a pro fan especially Jerry Jones but the young Cowboy quarterback will make me want the Cowboys to win.

Hi, Lisa Von Domek I wouldn't mind having one of your appetizers right now. They look so delicious. Just closed the 1st half of the game: Cowboys closing in on the Packers 21-13.  I always feel I jinx my team, too. I recall years ago my family and a large group watched the game on TV; I took a nap (I hate to lose)... Well, the Packers won and I heard my MOM tell everyone not to tell me I won the pool...$$$$$.  Seems MOM could take loses better than I.  So:

                              END OF FIRST HALF:

                    PACKERS  21      -    COWBOYS  13

Hi, Lisa Von Domek, just stopped by to say your Dallas Cowboys played a great game...WOW, on the 4th quarter!!!  To be honest it was anyone's game in the end. I think I stopped breathing for about 4 to 5 minutes.  See you, next year.
