This recipe calls for marinara sauce but you can use your favorite sauce or that jar stuff. There are several way to make these I use the Silicone cupcake liners makes very easy to unmold. Another way is use a mini muffin tin. It's size makes it perfect for a cocktail party or as an appetizer for a dinner party.

    If using mini muffin tin I trim corners of wonton wrappers so that they fit conformable in the. For the large Silicone cupcake liners I start with one then with a circle cutter to fit.
