In a pan over medium high heat, add in the sausage, crumble up, and fry until cooked though and browned.
Pour in the marinara sauce, bring to a boil, and allow to simmer for a couple of minutes. Set aside.
Place the ricotta in a mixing bowl followed by the Parmesan, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
Spray about 9 muffin wells with baking spray. Place a wonton wrapper into a muffin well followed by a second wrapper opposite the angles on the first. Repeat this process for all 9 of the muffin wells.
Place about a heaping tablespoon of the ricotta into the bottom of each wrapper followed by the same amount of sauce. Then, spread mozzarella over the top and some chopped basil.

I use ricotta cheese, but you can also substitute cottage cheese if you wish. I have to add that there's nothing like the taste and texture of ricotta, however.
Italian sausage makes a perfect sauce, but tomato sauce, pizza sauce, etc. can also be used.
The recipe makes about 9 lasagna bites. Simply double the recipe if more are required.
