How To Make Lasagne Rolls
Updated: Jun 9, 2019
One of my Favorite meals to eat is Lasagne! However, I don't always feel like make a huge pan of it for myself. One day I was home alone and decided I was going to make small pan of lasagne. Then it dawned on me that I could just make small rolls of it and pour some sauce on top! It literally tastes no different than actual lasagna. It's just less time consuming and personally, a lot more fun to make than traditional lasagne.
Lasagne Rolls are my go to for holiday parties and Potluck dinners! My family and friends love them! They are super easy to make and don't take as long as it does to make traditional lasagna!
Pasta Sauce You can purchase any pasta sauce you'd like or you can make your own. Be sure to let the sauce simmer on low in the pot for about 30 minutes. If you are making your sauce from scratch you obviously would cook it a lot longer. Feel free to add any seasoning you'd like. Whatever you would normally add to your pasta sauce.
Lasagna Noodles Bring water to a boil and place 9 or 10 lasagna noodles in the pot. Be sure to add a little more noodles than you may use, Just in case they break when removing them from the pot. Boil the noodles for about 20 minutes. Drain them and let them cool on a baking sheet so they can be ready to roll.
Stuffing Mixture Place garlic butter or olive oil in a pan. Sauté your spinach until it cooks down and reduces. Once your spinach has cooked down pour your diced tomatoes in the pan and mixx thoroughly. Once your are done mixing let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes.
Ricotta Cheese Mixture Use about a half quart of Ricotta cheese, one egg, fresh basil, Romano cheese, parmesan cheese, and mozzarella into a bowl. Mix it together thoroughly.
Once everything is finished cooking you can start assembling your rolls. Coat the bottom of your pan with pasta sauce before making your rolls.
Lay a roll on the cutting board or pan, then add ricotta mixture to the middle off the roll. Add tomato sauce or Meat sauce mixture next. Be sure to leave the ends of the noodle bare so you can roll your noodle. once you have your stuffing in the middle of the roll, place it in the pre sauced pan and repeat until the pan is full. (layering is optional) (think actual lasagna when layering.)
Add sauce then cheese on top of your rolls. be sure to get the sides as well! (be generous so your noodles don't dry out) Cover with aluminum foil and place it the oven for 15 minutes. Remove cover and place it back in the over for another ten minutes to let the cheese brown a bit. (optional) Take out and let cool.
