PostHeaderIcon #Recipe: Fast, Easy and Kid Friendly Lasagna Roll-Ups

I absolutely love lasagna! Some days I just don’t have the 3 hours it takes me to make it. Yes, it is taken very seriously in my home! I came up with this easy way to still get my lasagna fix without spending all that time in the kitchen. I am sure some genius woman has done this in the past but, I wish I had known about it much sooner!

All you have to do is cook your lasagna pasta as indicated on the box. Spread some Ricotta cheese on it, add some sauce and mozzarella. You can also sprinkle some cooked ground beef or sausage on it as well if you like. Roll it up, put a little sauce in the bottom of your baking dish so they don’t stick and spoon a little sauce over the top of each one. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and bake at 325 for about 30 minutes. Since every thing is already cooked, you really only are wanting to melt the cheese and warm it up. Be sure you let them sit at least 5 minutes after removing them from the oven. If you try to eat them right away, they will completely fall apart when you try to cut them. These are also good to make ahead and reheat for lunch.

PostHeaderIcon Recipe: Crafty Crescent Lasagna

INGREDIENTS:
Meat Filling
1/2 lb ground pork sausage
1/2 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
3/4 cup chopped onions
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
Dash pepper
1 can (6 oz) tomato paste

Cheese Filling
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup small-curd cottage cheese
1 egg

Crust
16 oz Refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 16 oz refrigerated seamless dough sheet
2 (7×4-inch) slices mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon sesame seed (I don’t like these so I didn’t use them)

DIRECTIONS
In 10-inch skillet, cook sausage and beef until thoroughly cooked and no longer pink, stirring frequently; drain. Stir in remaining meat filling ingredients; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly heated.

Meanwhile, heat oven to 375°F. In small bowl, mix cheese filling ingredients. Unroll both cans of dough. Place dough rectangles side by side, on ungreased cookie sheet (if using crescent dough, firmly press edges and perforations to seal). Press to form 15×13-inch rectangle.

Spoon half of meat filling in 6-inch wide strip lengthwise down center of dough to within 1 inch of short sides. Spoon cheese filling over meat filling; spoon remaining meat filling evenly over cheese filling. Arrange mozzarella cheese slices over filling.

Fold short sides of dough 1 inch over filling. Fold long sides of dough tightly over filling, overlapping edges in center 1/4 inch; firmly pinch center seam and ends to seal. Brush with milk; sprinkle with sesame seed.

Bake 23 to 27 minutes or until deep golden brown.
