lasagna rolls

i found the basic idea for this recipe on pinterest, of course. where else do i find recipes these days? you can find the original recipe here. i think that her recipe is pretty simple...but i just had a long day in the middle of a long week, so i made it even simpler!

6 lasagna noodles (cooked but still slightly firm)
1/2 c. ricotta
1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese
1 egg
1 tsp. dried "italian" herbs/spices (i had "pizza seasoning" on hand)
1-2 c. pasta sauce of your choice (depends on how much sauce you like)
1/4 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

boil your noodles. you want them al dente (a.k.a. cooked but not too soft).
while that's happening, spray your pan and then lightly cover the bottom with some of your pasta sauce. 
 then whip together your egg, ricotta, parmesan and herbs/spices.
 put your lasagna noodle on a plate and spread out a layer of your ricotta mixture.
 then layer on some sauce.
 roll it up....repeat process with all the noodles.
put them in your baking dish as you finish each noodle. make sure you put the "seam" (your loose end of the noodle) on the bottom. the transfer was a little tricky, but not as difficult as i had foreseen. just know that i don't know a way around having some of your sauce ooze out a bit.
 cover them with sauce.
sprinkle them with cheese. (i was generous...) 
 bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. 
 while i waited i put together some awesome salads (spinach, feta crumbles with mediterranean herbs, and croutons). i also put in some frozen garlic bread alongside the lasagna rolls.
here they are fresh out of the oven.

Pin It!
