Lasagna Rolls

29 Nov

These are a fun different take on your classic lasagna! This pasta dish is also very easy to make – I made some little step-by-step photo collages to give yall a better idea. I stuck with more traditional flavors but you can mix it up with a vegetarian style or whatever you like. (I made half with spinach for me and half without for hubby)

You just cook the lasagna noodles till al dente, spread your choice of filling, then roll up the noodles!

Spread a little sauce on the bottom of a baking dish, line up the rolled lasagna, top with some more sauce and mozzarella, and bake! Easy as that! 🙂

Lasagna Rolls
(makes 8 rolls) 

8 lasagna noodles
1 lb ground Italian sausage
8 oz ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
Frozen or fresh spinach, liquid squeezed out (about 5 oz – optional)
Pasta sauce (homemade or store bought)
Mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook the lasagna noodles till al dente, per the directions on the box. Strain the noodles and lay out on parchment paper. Cook the Italian sausage until done. Drain grease and set aside.

To make the cheese mixture, combine the ricotta, parmesan, eggs, oregano, garlic powder, and onion powder. Spread mixture on the lasagna noodles, dividing evenly. Next, spoon the sausage evenly onto the noodles. Add the spinach on top of the sausage (optional). Spoon a light layer of sauce onto each noodle. Tightly roll each noodle from the top towards you.

Spoon a thin layer of sauce into a 9×13 baking dish and line the lasagna rolls in the dish. Spoon more sauce on top of each roll. Bake for 15 minutes, then take out and add mozzarella cheese on top of each roll. Bake for another 15 minutes and serve while hot.
