As the weather turns cooler and the nights get longer comfort foods start to creep back in. Our bodies will naturally crave warming foods and these veggie lasagna roll-ups are the perfect fall/winter dish. Filled with veggies for a hearty meal and great for holiday gatherings as it feeds many with minimal cost.
Since I rolled the noodles you will need to buy the regular lasagna noodles and boil them first to get pliable for rolling. (sorry, not the no-bake ones here) Although, if you wanted to make this dish as regular lasagna just layer the ingredients instead of rolling them up. The veggies I chose were spinach, onions, mushrooms, and zucchini but feel free to use whatever you like! Choose the marinara sauce you like, I had a jar from Beach Plum Farm from our last visit to Cape May. A few of my faves are Primal Kitchen and Rao’s or from the local places in town.
While the lasagna noodles are cooking, this is when you sauté up the veggies then add them to the bowl of ricotta cheese. Mix well, layer the veggie mix on each noodle, roll, and place in the baking pan. Cover with sauce and cook for about 15 minutes just to heat through. I came out with 9 noodles. You can always double the recipe if you need more. Serve with a side salad and don’t forget the crusty Italian bread!
