Lasagna Rollups

This recipe is found at http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2014/05/lasagna-rollups/

The ingredients she originally provides included:

  • 20 whole Lasagna Noodles
  • Sauce:
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 whole Medium Onion, Diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1-1/2 pound Ground Beef
  • 1/2 pound Italian Sausage
  • 28 ounces, weight Canned Diced Tomatoes
  • 8 ounces, weight Tomato Paste
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons Minced Fresh Parsley
  • 3 Tablespoons Minced Fresh Basil
  • Filling
  • 30 ounces, weight Ricotta Cheese
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 3/4 cups Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Parsley, Minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Basil, Minced
  • 1 pound Mozzarella, Grated

I am not a fan of Basil, so I did not use it. Also, i subbed 2 lbs of ground turkey for the meat she originally used. I think I needed to bake it a little bit longer, and I would have preferred the sauce recipe to be doubled because I love sauce, and I included milk in the meat sauce recipe as well. It was still amazing with the original recipe guidelines. On a side note: please buy the good lasagna noodles. A higher grade for the lasagna would be important as you need the noodles to be long enough to fill up the pan. The ones I had barely filled it up, and it seemed to be lacking. The taste was on point. 🙂 Definitely going to make this in the future. And on the website, she also recommends freezing half, because they are great portions if you make them in the disposable pans. I froze three of them and baked the other three. For four people it was perfect. IMAG0412
