Gooey cheese, fresh spinach…did I mention gooey cheese? Yes, it’s meatless, but I don’t think you will miss it. I made ten roll-ups last night and they have vanished. My family devoured them shortly after their oven departure. The feedback from the partakers is positive.
This meal can easily be prepared in advance. Cook the lasagna noodles, drain and let air dry on paper towels to remove all moisture. Roll up and store in a zip lock back until ready to use. They will keep in the fridge for several days.
The filling can be made in less than 15 minutes. Baking time for the roll-up is 35-40 minutes which allows time to prepare side dishes.
Quite honestly, this is a stand-alone meal. If you want sides, I suggest hard crusted garlic bread and cooked asparagus tips drizzled with (good) olive oil. Serve the asparagus as the first course and lasagna/garlic bread as the second course. Give thought to how you plate each course, be creative. My post dinner choice: Biscotti and dark roasted coffee. Offer no-fat coffee flavorings as an option.
I will have the recipe posted this evening. Since the Blimpy Girl web site does not bring home the bacon, I have to rush off to my “real” job. I’m sure many of you can relate.
