Lasagna Roll-Ups

This has been a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week.  Noah has been teething so life has been rough for us all.  I feel so bad for my poor little guy.  Plus it’s snowing….on April 15.  Yep, that’s right.

Luckily, these lasagna roll-ups brightened up our week a little.  I wish little man could enjoy them, maybe that would make him feel better.

These were pretty simple to make and took less time than a traditional lasagna.  Plus, they are way more fun!  I basically took the ingredients from my mom’s lasagna recipe (best ever) and rolled them up into the noodles.  So easy, so delish!

Mix the ricotta, 1 cup cheese, egg, parsley and basil.  Once the ground beef and sausage has cooled stir that in too.  Spread the meaty, cheesy mixture on each noodle then roll.

Top with lots of sauce and cheese.

Oh yum!
