Lasagna Rolls

Lasagna Rolls -  This is one of my favorite recipes and had to share with you all!

I made my usual lasagna recipe but rather then layering it like lasagna I used the noodles to roll it up into little lasagna jelly roll goodness.

Use whatever lasagna recipe you like - In my lasagna I like to make the following tomato sauce:

  • 3/4 cup chopped onion

  • 5 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 2 (28 ounce) cans whole peeled tomatoes

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon white sugar

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste

  • 3/4 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, saute onion and garlic in olive oil until onion is translucent. Stir in tomatoes, salt, sugar and bay leaf. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 90 minutes. Stir in tomato paste, basil, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and meatballs and simmer 30 minutes more. Serve.

    And for the cheese I like to use : cottage cheese, a bag of Italian cheese, cream cheese, spinach, and mushrooms. Sometimes I use ricotta cheese but I really like cottage cheese better.

    Then just make your rolls and bake like normal Lasagna. This recipe is nice because everyone gets an individual portion and doesn't get all gooey when your cutting into pieces. Hope you enjoy as much as our family does!
