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.
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.
