Simple Caprese Lasagna Roll-Ups

  • Author: Mavis Butterfield

Ingredients

Scale

8 lasagna noodles, cooked to al dente
4 cups {approx 16 oz} shredded Mozzarella cheese, divided
1 cup Ricotta cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
4 medium Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1 1/4 cups of your favorite pasta sauce {I used Ragu}


Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Align lasagna noodles in a single layer on parchment or wax paper and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, 3 1/2 cups of Mozzarella cheese and season with salt, pepper and oregano.

Place 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture on each lasagna noodle and spread evenly across the entire noodle. Place 4 thin tomato slices over cheese mixture, then sprinkle fresh basil over top.

Tightly roll the lasagna noodles to opposite end. Repeat until all 8 rolls are complete. Spread a thin layer {approx 1/4 cup} pasta sauce in the bottom of an 11 x 7 inch baking dish.

Lay lasagna roll ups seam side down in dish. Top each roll up with enough pasta sauce to cover the edges so they don’t dry out while baking.

Sprinkle with remaining shredded Mozzarella. Bake for 30 minutes.
