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 😆
