Poor Man's Lasagna Rolls


Today I have a recipe to share for Poor Man's Lasagna Rolls that I found at Little Kitchen On The Prairie. This recipe caught my eye because it looked sooo tasty and was a little more cost effective than a regular lasagna. Don't get me wrong, my family loves homemade lasagna, but it is an expensive dish. Once you by three different cheeses the cost goes up! We usually save it for special occasions. So these lasagna rolls are a good alternative. We gave them a thumbs up!

1/2 c. chopped onion
1 can or jar pasta sauce
1 1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
1 egg slightly beaten

Cook lasagna noodles. Drain and set aside. Brown ground beef and onion. Drain.Transfer beef to a bowl and add 1/4 c. pasta sauce,1/2 c. cheese, and egg.Mix together.

Spread each lasagna noodle with about 1/3 c. or so of the meat mixture.Carefully roll up the noodle and place seam side down in an ungreased 13x9 pan. Pour remaining sauce over top. Cover and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake, uncovered, for about 5 to 10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.

That sounds really good and since my husband doesn't like ricotta cheese, which is in most lasagna recipes maybe he'd actually eat it for me!

Thanks Marlene! It is a nifty twist on regular lasagna. Thanks for your comments.

Thanks for your comment Katie! This would be a good alternative for someone that doesn't eat ricotta. Hope you all like it.
