All right, so for dinner tonight: Vegetable lasagna rolls ups.

Pretty easy, pretty delicious.


6 lasagna noodles
1 c broccoli florets
2 large carrots, shredded
10 oz spinach (in the past I've used frozen, used fresh this time)
8 oz ricotta
1/4 c Parmesan
1 T Italian seasoning
Salt to taste
Shredded cheese (Mozzarella, Italian blend, etc)
Marinara sauce (recipe follows)

Preheat oven to 350.

Prepare marinara sauce.
If using frozen spinach, thaw and squeeze out the water. If using fresh, steam in a pot until done. Drain well.Steam broccoli and carrot until tender, about 5 mins. Drain well. 

In a medium bowl, mix ricotta, Parmesan, Salt, and Italian Seasoning. Add vegetables and mix well.

Prepare lasagna according to package directions. Drain well.

Put a thin layer of marinara in the bottom of a 9x9 glass baking dish.

Take one lasagna noodle and spread a layer of the veggie/cheese mixture across it. Gently roll up and place in the dish, seam side down. Repeat with remaining noodles. Cover with marinara sauce and bake, covered with foil, for approximately 30 minutes. Remove foil, add shredded cheese, and bake another 10-15, or until cheese is melted and/or golden.

Marinara Sauce:

1 14.5oz can petite diced tomatoes
1 6oz can tomato paste
6 oz water

2 T olive oil1 T Worcestershire
Salt, pepper, garlic power (or minced garlic), Italian Season to taste.

Combine all bring to a boil and simmer 1 hour.





Serve with Garlic Toast and/or a salad and...ENJOY!

And you know, I guess one could make it in the traditional lasagna way, layer the noodles, cheese and veggie mix, and sauce, but I have not tried it. Might be just as good!

I was just thinking. We have a "Food" forum, but ATS REALLY needs a Recipe forum. Seriously.

Replace the broccoli with cauliflower.

Replace the spinach ... nah mate, chuck the spinach in the bin!

Add peas and corn.

Otherwise ... great recipe.

I guess pretty much any vegetable could be used, this is just the one I like.

I love spinach, I love broccoli, and they cook down well to make a consistent cheese mixture, versus, say, corn or peas. Those might be better in a traditional veggie lasagna, but who knows!

But thanks!

Dice steak to around 1/2" squares and add in lots ....

Bet then, it would not be very vegetarian.

That gives me an idea for a thread.

I mean, a meat sauce could be used instead of marinara. And meat could be added. But then it wouldn't be vegetarian.

Or: Place a strip of cooked (but not crispy) bacon on the lasagna noodle before adding the cheese mixture, and then roll.

OMG

100% Italian and I made veggie lasagna Saturday with kale, mushrooms and onions.

I also used a besciamella, no ricotta for this pisano.

Where has the garlic gone?

Here I thought we were the only family that avoided garlic.

It's in the marinara sauce.

Fresh minced garlic in the cheese mixture would also be divine, though.

Heh, we're a huge garlic family. I don't think I'd get this past my husband very well. He needs his meat. I might sneak it by him if I added huge port caps to it. That might do it.

I'm less all-in on needing to have meat every time out.

Of course! And any seasonings can be added to taste.

For the noodles, I just use a 6-8 quart nonstick dutch oven/stockpot, bring the water to a boil, and put the noodles in one at a time in criss-cross fashion, so they resemble an asterisk. They aren't initially entirely submerged, but after a minute or two they become soft enough where they slide into the water. Stirring occasionally so they don't stick.

I guess you could always add ground chuck/sirloin or sausage to the cheese mixture, and make it a meat sauce instead of a marinara sauce.

Probably be enough to use the port caps and a bit of prosciutto or bacon for him, especially with the cheese.

We make a pita sandwich that uses a portobello mushroom cream filling flavored with crumbled bacon and that is enough, so the idea out to be the same.

Yeah, as I mentioned above when the issue of meat came up, a strip of cooked but not crisp bacon (or, since you mention it, prosciutto) on the noodle before topping with the cheese and rolling up might be pretty good.

I definitely add mushrooms and onions to my veggie lasagna. I also usually add asparagus, in addition to the broccoli and spinach. Sometimes diced eggplant.

I love a good garlic white-sauce dish, but usually go for the tomato-based for lasagna.

Traditional is to use both, I also use the no-boil sheets which are thinner so I can get many more layers.

But whatever works, as long as people are cooking and not eating packaged crap.
