Lasagna Rolls

Alright folks. I finally broke out my kitchen aid! 

What better way to use it than for a recipe I’ve been making/eating since I can remember.

The best part about this one is you can freeze some for later 🙂 

What you need: 

  • ½ lb pork sausage 
  • 1 lb ground beef 
  • ½ cup chopped onion 
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic 
  • 1 package frozen spinach (thawed)
  • 1 egg 
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 – 15 oz. containers ricotta cheese
  • 1 jar marinara sauce 
  • 20 uncooked lasagna noodles. 
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella. 

The process: 

  1. Cook lasagna noodles al dente style. Drain water. 
  2. Cook beef,sausage, garlic  and onion in skillet over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Drain grease. 
  3. In a bowl ( I used my kitchen aid) mix ricotta, spinach, basil and egg. 
  4. Add meat mixture to spinach/cheese mixture. Stir until well combined. 
  5. Preheat oven to 350. 
  6. Lay noodles out flat. Spoon mixture onto the middle of each noodle. Make sure you leave about one inch at the end and then roll the noodle up. 
  7. Pour half of the marinara sauce in the bottom of a 13×9 glass baking dish. 
  8. Place lasagna rolls into the dish with the seam facing down. 
  9. Pour remaining marinara over noodles and sprinkle with cheese. 
  10. Cover with foil and place in oven for 35 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. 
  11. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. 

So yummy! And pretty easy 🙂 if you want to save some for later just put the rolls into a sealed bag or Tupperware container and leave in the freezer until you’re ready for them. 

You will need to let them thaw for at least 8 hours in a refrigerator. Then just follow steps  7-11.  Keeps for up to 3 months. 

Here are some pictures of my process.

I forgot pics for the last few steps but here it was out of the oven. I like to broil it for a few minutes to get the cheese a bit crispy 😆


Chicken Broccoli Bake

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a recipe. I have been cooking but most of my time has been spent on wedding projects so I have been slacking on remembering to post. I’ll  catch back up I promise. 

I got a kitchen aid mixer, bamboo steamer, wok AND donut pan for my bridal shower so be ready for deliciousness. 

Here’s a recipe that’s SO easy and SO delicious! A good one for families always on the go. 

What you need: 

3-4 boneless skinless chicken breast 

2 cans of Campbell’s broccoli cheese soup 

1 package of frozen broccoli florets 

8 oz shredded cheddar 

What you do: 

  1. Preheat oven to 450 
  2. Place chicken breast in a glass baking dish. 
  3. Dump brocolli on top of chicken
  4. Pour brocolli cheese soup on top of chicken and brocolli 
  5. Sprinkle on shredded cheddar. 
  6. Place pan in oven for 30-45 minutes or until cheese is golden and serve.

I forgot to get a pic before I served it up but here it is on my plate. I really wish I would’ve gotten one because it looked just as good as it tasted. 

I truly can’t express how delicious it was. I know that’s silly because it’s so simple 🙃

We had it with rice. Potatoes are a good option too. You may not even need a side…
I would LOVE to try more dump and bake dishes.
