Summer Food Series: Part 6

I love meals that are simple and yummy. One night we were having last minute company I put a few of our favorite basics together and came up with something that worked for a crowd – Lasagna Rolls. I like this because you can adjust it to what works. I make my own sauce, but you can pour it out of a can or use your favorite recipe. Do what works for your family!

Lasagna Rolls


12 pieces of lasagna, cooked
1 lb ground beef, cooked
3-4 c of tomato sauce (your favorite)
2-3 dz. baby spinach leaves

Combine cooked beef and sauce. Take one piece of cooked lasagna and lay it flat on a cutting board. Scoop several tablespoons of sauce mix onto the pasta and spread to cover the entire noodle. Lay spinach leaves on the sauce mix to desired thickness. Roll and place in a greased 9X13 baking pan.

Cheese Sauce:

3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour
4 c milk
1/2 tsp dry mustard powder
3/4-1c grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter in a sauce pan over medium-high heat. Whisk in flour to make a roux. Slowly add milk and whisk out lumps. Turn down heat if needed – you don’t want to boil it too quickly. Whisk until milk is all combined and there are no lumps. Add mustard powder, parmesan cheese and salt and pepper. Simmer until slightly thickened. Pour over the lasagna rolls and allow to seep down into all the cracks. Bake at 350F for about 30 minutes.

PS – Makes great leftovers!
