Italian Sausage Lasagne Cups

I find myself thinking a lot of all the reasons I love my husband. I realized the other day that I don't really share with him that often the reasons I love him so much. So I decided it was time I wrote down all the reasons and gave them to him. 
Romantic Tip: Make a "Why I Love You" list of your love's best qualities and jot down in a simple, handmade birthday, anniversary or just an ordinary why I love you card.
Now on to today's recipe... My husband LOVES these lasagne cups. He said; "By the way you can make these anytime you want". So another A+ from the hubby! These are simple to make and they reheat really nicely too!

Lasagne Cups Recipe
1/2 pound sweet Italian sausage cooked and drained
1 cup Marinara 
4 oz of Philadelphia Cream Cheese 
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese 
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp chopped chives
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup mozzarella cheese
6 Lasagne noodles
Basil for garnish

For the cheese filling- stir cream cheese, minced garlic, chopped chives, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.  Set aside. 
For the pasta- Bring large pot of salted water to boil. Cook pasta sheets 2 minutes less than package directions and drain. Place pasta on greased baking sheet until you are ready for assembly.

Cook your meat and drain it. 
For assembly- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  
 Cut your noodles in half. Make a cross over each cup in a muffin tin. Push the cross down to make a "cup".
I find it easiest to use every other hole in the muffin tins. 
Spoon about 2 tablespoons of meat into the bottom of each cup. 
Add 2 TBSP Marinara sauce
Next add 1 TBSP Cream cheese mixture.
Top with 2 TBSP mozzarella and 1 TBSP Parmesan.
Finally top with chopped Fresh Basil.
Repeat this process until you have used all your noodles
 Bake for 25-30 minutes or until everything is hot and bubbly. 
Serve hot.
