I love to cook. Lately we have been eating out way too much. It's easy and there are no dishes. I am trying to cook more at home. My Aunt Kris gave me a Quick Cooking cookbook for Christmas. The Lasagna Roll-Ups were the first recipe I tried.
Here is the original recipe -
I tweaked it though. This is what I used-
10 uncooked lasagna noodles
1 package ground spicy Italian sausage* (I used this because it was on sale at the grocery store)
1 package (8 ounces) of chive and onion cream cheese **(I thought this would give it a better flavor)
1 jar (26 ounces) Vodka sauce ***(I picked this up at Trader Joe's last week and thought it would be good in this recipe)
1 bag shredded Italian mixed cheese
*You can use hamburger, ground turkey, or turkey sausage
**You could probably also use veggie cream cheese
***Your favorite pasta sauce will work
Cook the noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in softened cream cheese and 1/3 cup of the pasta sauce. Drain noodles; spread 1/4 cup of the meat mixture on each noddle. Sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons cheese; carefully roll up.
Spread 2/3 cup of pasta sauce into an ungreased 13in x 9in baking dish. Place roll-ups seam side down over the sauce. Top with remaining sauce and cheese. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Uncover; bake 150-20 additional minutes longer or until bubbly.
Note - I struggled with rolling them. It was pretty messy. In the end it was worth it. Both my husband and I really enjoyed this meal.
