Cheesy Lasagna Rolls


This recipe comes courtesy of Rachel at My Sisters’ Cucina. I thought this sound like a more fun and easier way to do lasagna. I used cottage cheese in place of the ricotta, because I had some that needed to be used soon. However, I would recommend sticking to using the ricotta. The cottage was fine, except there was a lot of liquid in the pan after cooking. So the sauce in the pan turned out a little watery. Next time I am using ricotta.

I also only used 10 lasagna noodles because what I had on hand was extra wide noodles. These lasagna rolls were yummy, easier to dish up, and a little easier  to make than regular lasagna. You don’t have to spend time layering all the layers, just spread the filling on the noodles and roll ‘em up. Loved them. Thanks Rachel. Tomorrow, I’ll share my favorite french bread recipe that I served with these little cheesy lasagna rolls.

  • Yours turned out great! I’m so glad that they worked out for you and that you liked them. I’m excited to try your french bread recipe, it looks great! I’ve been looking for a recipe for that!

  • I’ve found that the best way to use cottage cheese instead of ricotta is to drain the cottage cheese. I’ll dump the cottage cheese into a strainer lined with cheesecloth and let it drain for about one hour. After draining the cottage cheese works so much better when subbing for ricotta cheese.

  • Those look yummy!!
