Brush one sheet of filo dough lightly with olive oil then cut sheet into 8 equal squares. Layer 4 squares on top of each other and place 4 squares into a muffin tin cup, pressing into bottom and sides. Repeat with remaining filo dough squares so all 12 muffin cups each have 4 squares of filo dough.
Fill filo cups with ricotta then top with ground beef sauce. Sprinkle mozzarella on top and bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool slightly before gently removing from muffin cups.
