Lasagna Roll Ups

I noticed I haven’t done any recipes for a while… a really long while. So here is a fancy way to make Lasagna and sneak in some spinach disguised at something yummy. Looks complicated but it’s really not. Just a bit time consuming.

 

 

1.5 lbs hamburger/ Italian sausage

1 jar of favorite spaghetti sauce

1 carton Ricotta Cheese

1\2 carton Mascarpone Cheese

1 cup Mozzarella

1 cup Parmesan

1 cup Romano

1 cup cheddar

1 cup Monterey Jack

(all the cheese should be grated)

1 pkg frozen Spinach (thawed and drained)

About 12 Lasagna Noodles

 

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

Grate all the cheeses into a large bowl

Lay one noddle out flat

2014-07-20 15.57.03

Grab a handful of cheese mixture and press onto noodle

to about 1/4 inch from one end

2014-07-20 15.59.04

Keep rolling

All rolled up

2014-07-20 15.59.42

A serrated knife works best

2014-07-20 16.00.10

Place cut side down in sauce

2014-07-20 16.00.19

You should be able to fit 4 halves across the pan

See… pretty

Sprinkle with Parmesan, Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes or until cheese is all melted.

 

Done! Serve with a green salad and garlic bread… I never have leftovers with this dish. And I think it’s pretty enough for company.

 

Till next time…XOXO
