LASAGNA ROLLUPS RECIPE

I love pasta.  In any way, shape or form.  I think I must have been Italian in a previous life.  So when 2nd Man says "do you want pasta?" I'm all like "um, YEAH!!!!!"

This one is simple and good.


Simple tomato sauce.  This has no meat.  It's made of tomatoes both canned and fresh.  Oregano, basil, garlic, salt and pepper.  Just a basic sauce, any style you like.  Of course you can put meat in your sauce if you are so inclined.  


Next, boil a pound of lasagna noodles in salted water.  Remove when they are al dente and lay out to dry a bit (we put ours on a fresh dishtowel). 


In a separate bowl, mix one 15 oz container of ricotta cheese, 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese, 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 1 large egg, 1 TBSP fresh Italian flat leaf parsley (chopped), 1 TBSP fresh basil (chopped), and salt and pepper to taste.


Spread about 1/3 of the sauce in the bottom of a baking dish.


Spread 2 to 3 TBSP filling on each lasagna noodle and roll up.


Place seam side down in sauced baking dish. 


Just keep repeating the process until...


...you have filled your baking dish with the rolled up noodles.


Pour remaining sauce over the top of all.


Sprinkle some shredded cheese over the top and place, uncovered, in a 350 degree oven for about 50-60 minutes or until cheese is browned and bubbly.


Remove from oven and dish it up. It's so yummy, almost like having a lasagna (I said "almost", ha).

    1. It's really just a simple thing to make, noodles, a filling that is flexible and a sauce that is flexible. Enjoy!

  6. Love lasagna. Normally I will make 2; 1 for the freezer and 1 to eat at the moment.

    When short on time, and wanting something quick and easy I made a skillet lasagna using the trumpet shaped pasta (Barilla Campanelle )
