Fast & Easy Dinner: Lasagna Rolls

Fast & Easy Dinner: Lasagna Rolls

For an alternative presentation for lasagna, consider making lasagna rolls. Instead of layering the cheese and vegetables, the ingredients — in this case ricotta, spinach, mozzarella, and ranch — is spread on the pasta sheets and rolled up. Serve crusty garlic bread for mopping up the scrumptious sauce. Sound interesting? Check out the recipe when you

A friend once made a similar version of these roll-ups, but instead stuffed them with blanched asparagus, thinly sliced proscuitto, and fresh motz. She finished each roll with a drizzle of fresh lemon juice and freshly ground pepper. Wunnnnerful!

I'd personally leave out the ranch dressing, but I love the idea of serving lasagne in rolls instead of squares.

My mom makes these - not sure about the ranch though. It's good for fries and stuff, but not lasagne!

Neat idea! I usually just make cannelloni, then you don't need to pre-cook the pasta, you just stuff and go.

I love lasagna rolls, but a big NO to the ranch dressing... that's disgusting but I see why it's in the recipe, it's from Hidden Valley Ranch apparently. I do a spinach mixture in my regular lasagna of: one beaten egg, one container of ricotta, one package of frozen chopped spinach thawed and drained well, salt, pepper and yes a bit of nutmeg and I usually add a bit of grated parmesean... mix well together and it's an awesome filling for stuffed shells or great to layer in a lasagna.

I have seen a recipe like this and have been wanting to try it. But without the ranch.Kimdangirl, i was wondering the same thing. You could probably just add it to the ricotta mix and roll it up in it.

My husband makes these for family potlucks (so easy to serve!). Um, not with ranch though (yuck). They aren't actually easier or faster, but they look great!

Looks like a neat way to make lasagna...but I'm not ok with the ranch. I'm not a fan of ranch so I don't think I'd make this particular recipe itself. I guess Hidden Valley is trying to get people to put their product in just about anything?

My mom makes these. They're so much easier to eat than classic lasagna.

I make these all the time but have never added ranch dressing before. I'll have to give it a try!
