I have entirely converted to Lasagna roll ups nowadays, I hardly make the traditional layered Lasagna. My last visit to Bangalore to my sisters place I discovered these amazing Lasagna Noodles in a gourmet shop and these are a must in my parties now. Just play around with the ingredients of the fillings and the sauces and you are ready with your signature dish.

The ingredients used in this baked roll ups are always easily available in the pantry….in fact to tell you the truth I thrive on this vegetarian filling. Be it grilled sandwiches, wrap, cannelloni or Lasagna this yummy filling finds place in my kitchen very regularly. Sometimes I add corn or sautéed mushrooms to the cottage cheese and Spinach filling and it surely rocks……simple yet incredible flavours.

The homemade Marinara sauce is what I use for most of my pasta dishes. It’s a make ahead, freezable recipe which always comes handy when I need it. I always use a combo of Marinara and white sauce to bake the Lasagna roll ups as the white sauce imparts a lovely richness and creaminess to the dish. We start with spreading the Spinach and Cottage Cheese filling on the Lasagna noodle,layered with some grated mozzarella and fresh tomato slices, sprinkled with torn basil leaves, rolled up and topped with Marinara and White sauce, mozzarella and finally baked till the cheese turns golden and melts. So without further ado let’s just jump over to the recipe.

 

We can also use Ricotta Cheese or Cream Cheese instead of the cottage cheese in this heavenly Lasagna Roll ups bake .

  3. To make the simple Marinara sauce heat the olive oil in a saucepan on medium flame, add onions and crushed garlic, saute till transparent, add the puréed tomato and the seasonings and let it cook for 15 minutes or till the water from the tomato dries up making it thick.
  4. When the Marinara sauce is cooking start making the white sauce in another saucepan. Sauté the butter and flour on medium heat till light brown, slowly add the milk whisking simultaneously making sure no lumps remain,as the sauce thickens add the salt, peeper and nutmeg and switch off the flame.
  5. For assembling, divide the cheese mix into 6 equal parts.Spread 1 tsp Marinara sauce on a lasagna noodle and on top of it spread 1 part of cheese mix on one Lasagna noodle from end to the other, sprinkle some grated mozzarella, place tomato slices as shown in the pic and finally sprinkle some torn basil.
  6. Roll out the Lasagna noodle snuggly to the other end. Repeat the same process for the other Lasagna noodles.
  7. Spread 1/4 cup Marinara sauce in the bottom of a rectangular dish, align the lasagne roll ups side by side on it with the seam side down.
  8. Top each roll with 2 tsps of Marinara sauce making sure covering the edge of the pasta so that they don't dry out.
  9. Top the rolls with White sauce and finally sprinkle with the remaining Mozarella and bake in a preheated oven at 180 deg C for 20-25 minutes or till the top turns golden brown.
  10. Remove from oven, plate the roll ups, garnish with torn basil leaves.
