Episode is 4 here! Lasagna Roll Ups are by far one of my favorite meals to make, especially for a crowd. In fact, I made it last night for our weekend guests…a dad and his FIVE sons! Not only did they wolf it down, the oldest child deemed it “the best lasagna I’ve ever had in my entire life! Seriously, this is iron chef-worthy.” Talk about polite manners! Sure, he’s only 17, but that’s the best lasagna in 17 years. I’ll take that.
Speaking of iron chef, I received a call this week from a casting agent for a new prime time cooking show that pits a home cook against a professional chef. It will be interesting to see if/how this pans out…stay tuned.
Back to the rolls, making them is easier than you might think. And what’s even easier is serving them because no cutting is necessary. Just lift each individual roll with a spatula and you’re good to go. I did add some TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein) to give it a meaty texture, and extra pesto because we are pesto-lovers ’round these parts.
As far as behind the scenes…I cut out my 3-year-old saying “Ew” while I mixed the cottage and ricotta cheese. Hope you enjoy the show…these really are fun for kids to help make.
