Love meat and lasagna but looking for an easy recipe? These meat lovers lasagna rolls satisfy all those requirements! By using simple ingredients and high quality Ragu spaghetti sauce, this meal will be on the table (and in your tummy) in less than an hour!
Did you know our most popular recipe is my mom’s lasagna recipe without ricotta cheese? I’m not too surprised. It’s pretty delicious and super easy. It may not have ricotta or other random cheeses in it…but that’s why I like it. I’m not a fan of ricotta (or any other soft cheese!)
Even though that recipe is about as easy as they come, I thought it would be fun to mix it up a little bit and make lasagna rolls. I have seen these floating around Pinterest lately, and the idea intrigued me. I mean, it’s basically all the same ingredients – it’s just made in a different form. It seemed, to me, like a good way to kind of limit the amount of carbs you are getting. My usual lasagna has about 12 lasagna noodles in it. With this one, you make six rolls – and I was quite full after one. You get just one piece of noodle, the meat sauce, and some mozzarella (which is a lower-fat cheese), so I feel like it’s a good way to limit your portion size.
It can be a little tricky rolling up the lasagna roll, but I’ve found that rather than rolling it all that same way, once you’ve roll it up about 1/2 – 3/4 of the way, bring the other edge up and around the top. Here’s a little picture tutorial on how to make this recipe!
I know a lot of people like to use homemade spaghetti sauce – and I wish I had more time to make homemade. However, there are a lot of yummy store bought spaghetti sauces out there, so feel free to use those as well.
