Lasagna Rolls

212. Dinner tonight was Lasagna Rolls ala Giada.
My honey has been wanting to make the recipe from Giada's Family Dinners Cookbook for Lasagna Rolls. You can find the recipe here on Food Network.
The recipe uses wonderful Italian thinly sliced prosciutto.
My honey and I worked together. While he mixed the filling of riccotta cheese, I made the white sauce.
We boiled the pasta,
finished the filling,
then started the process.
Three tablespoons of filling spread down the center of each lasagna noodle.
Then roll to create a small package. After you spread the white cream sauce on the bottom of your baking dish, line the lasagna rolls side by side, 12 rolls to be exact.

Then spoon 1 cup of sauce over the rolls,
and finish with a sprinkling of 1 cup of mozzarella cheese and 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese.
Bake in a 450 degree oven, covered for 20 minutes. Then remove the foil and continue to bake for 15 more minutes.
Let the Lasagna Rolls sit for 10 minutes...then serve.
What a wonderful spin on the traditional Lasagna and so easy to serve. This is a keeper recipe.

"A beautiful evening can be as simple as watching a favorite movie, 
while enjoying an excellent meal (at home)."

Hi Lilly!
I stated making those 25 years ago because they are so much easier to serve. Nice for a ladies lunch with a crisp salad and some homemade bread!
Hope you are well, the lasagne rolls look delicious!
