Lasagna Roll Ups

Just when you thought lasagna couldn’t get any more delicious... we roll it up. Inspired by the classic meat and cheese lasagna like nonna used to make, this easy baked pasta recipe is as fun to create as it is to eat.

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F.
  2. In a large pot of salted water, cook lasagna according to package instructions. Drain the pot, and then fill with cold water to stop the cooking process and to keep noodles from sticking together.
  3. In a non-stick saucepan over medium heat, cook the ground beef, breaking up meat with the back of a spatula. Sauté until browned and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Drain, then transfer meat to a bowl. Set aside.
  4. Using the same pan over medium heat, cook the shallot in oil until fragrant and translucent. Add the spinach and pepper flakes. Cook until spinach is slightly wilted, about 5-6 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, combine ricotta, ¾ cup Parmigiano-Reggiano and dried basil. Mix in eggs. Salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the cooled spinach to combine.
  6. Spread 1/2 of marinara sauce over the bottom of a 13" x 9" baking dish.
  7. Prepare the rollups on a large baking sheet. Arrange noodles in a single layer. Spread about ¼ cup of ricotta and spinach mixture over the length of each noodle. Add a heaping teaspoon of ground beef in a strip down the center of the noodle. Sprinkle each with mozzarella cheese.
  8. One by one, roll up the noodles and arrange them in the prepared baking dish.
  9. Spread remaining sauce over the tops of rollups. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and Parmigiano cheeses.
  10. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove foil and broil for 3 to 5 minutes or until the cheese is lightly golden and bubbly. Serve sprinkled with fresh basil.
