Arrange 4 wonton skins, drained briefly on a kitchen towel, in 1 layer on top of sauce. Divide half of ricotta mixture evenly among squares in pan and top with 4 more squares, drained briefly. Spoon remaining ricotta mixture evenly on top of squares in pan and top with remaining 4 squares, drained.

  • Spoon several tablespoons sauce over each stack and bake, uncovered, in middle of oven until bubbling, and heated through, about 10 minutes.
