I'm a bit obsessed with pasta at the present moment. I like all kinds, but mostly ones that are pasta shapes filled with cheese, or pasta shapes in a lot of sauce.. and a lot of cheese! I'm very greedy when it comes to cheese, erm, pasta. :) I can continue eating long after I'm technically full. F*** the technicalities, f*** the points!
Lisa made a lasagna roll-up dish recently that I just had to recreate in my own kitchen. It just looked too good to miss! Mmmm, turned out fabulously. (See recipe below and picture above.)
Obviously, this was going to be an indulgent dinner. But I knew that already. Life is too short to always be craving cheese. Sometimes you just need to succumb to temptations.
Definitely try this if you can! Thanks, Lisa, for the inspiration!!!
Lisa's Lasagna Roll-ups
POINTS® value 11
4 lasagne sheets
150 gm Part Skim Ricotta Cheese
25 gm grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup of pasta sauce
1 oz whole milk mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup Low-Moisture, Part-Skim Finely Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 tsp dried oregano
1 Tbsp dried parsley
Cut each cooked lasagna sheet horizontally in half to give you 8 smaller sheets. Spread a teaspoon of ricotta mixture on each sheet and roll up. Place seam-side down in a pan with a thin coating of the pasta sauce.
Top the rolls liberally with the sauce and the shredded and fresh mozzarella.
Bake at 375F for 30-40 minutes until the cheese is melted and brown in parts.
