The preparation was slightly messy, quick and easy. The lasagna rolls were very cheesy and delicious! Your whole family even your kids will love this dish!

Ingredients

20 lasagna noodles

1 Tbsp. salt

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 medium onion, diced

1 C. finely chopped mushrooms (about 3 ounces)

1 green bell pepper, diced (about 1 C.)

3 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 1/2 Tbsps)

2 lbs. ground beef

1/2 tsp. Freshly ground pepper

1 28-oz. can diced tomatoes

1 6-oz. can tomato paste

1 30-oz. container whole-milk ricotta cheese (about 3 1/3 C.)

1 lb. mozzarella, grated (about 3 1/2 cups)

1 C. grated parmesan cheese

2-3 large eggs

Directions

1. Cook the lasagna noodles in a large pot of salted boiling water until al dente. Drain, rinse with cold water to cool and lay flat on a sheet of foil. Set aside.

2. Make the sauce: In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, mushrooms, green pepper and garlic and saute for four to five minutes, until the vegetables are starting to soften. Remove the veggie mixture from the pan, then add the ground beef to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until it’s totally browned. Drain the excess fat, then add 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper, the diced tomatoes, tomato paste and the veggie mixture. Let the mixture simmer over low heat, thirty minutes.

3. Make the cheese glue: Combine the ricotta, 1/2 cup mozzarella, 3/4 cup parmesan, the eggs, 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Stir to combine.

5. Assemble the lasagna: Spoon a thin layer of sauce onto the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch pan or five 6-inch disposable foil loaf pans. Spread two to three tablespoons of the ricotta filling on each lasagna noodle, then roll them up so that the cheese is on the inside of the roll.

6. Lay them sideways in the pan(s). (Four roll-ups will fit in each loaf pan, or you can fill a 9-by-13-inch pan.) Top with the remaining sauce and plenty of grated mozzarella and parmesan. If you’re making the roll-ups right away, place the pan(s) on a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees F for twenty minutes, until hot and bubbly. Serve with a salad or some other vegetable. Enjoy!

Court’s Cooking Notes

FREEZE IT! Cover the pan tightly with heavy-duty foil and freeze up to 4 months. To bake, preheaet the oven to 350 degrees F. Bake the foil-covered pan 1 1/2 hours (if using loaf pans, place on a baking sheet before baking); remove the foil and bake 30 minutes more, until hot and bubbly.
