Easy Lasgana?!?!

Posted on February 2, 2012. Filed under: Breads, Main Course | Tags: , , , |

Everyone who knows me knows how much I love pasta. I REALLY love it. It’s easy, delicious, fast and as customizable as your car is. There are thousands of combinations that all taste amazing. Matt and I, as we always are, were having issues on what to do last night. There’s not much to do in Valpo as it is, so you have to get creative. We went through two Frugal Gourmet cookbooks, an Elote Cafe cookbook and a cruise line’s cookbook…and found nothing. [”””””””””””””””””””” <- that’s from Moss, I’m leaving it. I almost said we should make quesdillas because Matt makes the BEST quesdillas I’ve ever had. (I’m not just saying that because he’s my boyfriend, he is a good cook). But, while going through our fifth cookbook, I was struck with inspiration. Lasagna…but in roll form! It’s kind of like a stuffed shell, but WAY messier to make (as I discovered). The idea was perfect, the result was amazing. I made some garlic bread on the side (Matt had only really had frozen) and it was a delicious meal!

 

Lasgana Rolls

1 box Lasgana noodles, boiled
Pasta sauce, home made or store bought
1 pkg hot Italian sausage
Riccota cheese, about 1 cup
1 cup Mozzerella, plus more for garnish
1 clove garlic, smashed
oregano, basil to taste

  1. Mix the Riccota with the garlic, oregno and basil, taste to make sure it’s not to over powering.
  2. Brown the sausage and mix with the pasta sauce, make sure that the sauce is warmed.
  3. Lay a cooked noodle on a cookie sheet. Spread a thin layer of the Ricotta mixture, then the sauce mixture, then top with Mozzarella cheese. Roll the whole thing up, loosely, making sure both ends of the noddle are on the bottom. Top with a little bit of sauce and more Mozzarella. Repeat until all the noodles are done.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Serve immediately.

Garlic Bread
