Lasagna Roll Ups
Love me some pasta!
This week instead of making old fashion lasagna, I decided to try "Lasagna Roll Ups" instead. We were not disappointed! This dish with some garlic bread was delicious! To save time, I prepared the recipe the night before and then stuck it in the oven when I came home from work the next day.
2 jars of 28 oz spaghetti sauce (I like a lot of sauce and one jar just didn't cut it with me)
1 pound container of Ricotta cheese
2 bags of 8 oz Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon of salt
1 Tablespoon of parsley
8 lasagna noodles
***Other options: adding hamburger, onions, spinach, etc! If you add hamburger, I would cook 10 noodles total instead of 8.
First, cook the noodles according to the directions on the package, drain and cool.
Next, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pour one jar of spaghetti sauce in a casserole dish. In a medium sized bowl, mix the Ricotta cheese, one bag of Mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, eggs, salt and parsley together. Spoon the mixture over a single lasagna noodle, distributing evenly. Roll the noodle up tightly and place it in the pan, seam side down. If you have extra cheese mixture, you can add it between the rolls ups in the pan. Pour the other can of spaghetti sauce over the noodles and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes (or until heated through) and then bake uncovered for an additional 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted. Let cool for 15 minutes and serve with garlic bread and a small salad.
