I love these lasagna rolls, but I gotta admit that they’re a bit tedious to prepare. Like, it took me more than an hour to prepare from start to finish. From cooking the pasta, then the sauce, then rolling them up one by one.. suffice it to say that these are definitelya labor of love. For my palate family. 😉
Nevertheless, all that effort was totally worth it when I got to see the beautiful finished lasagna rolls and took my first bite. Yep, definitely worth it. 😀 So without further ado, here’s my recipe:
Cook the lasagna according to package directions. Once al dente, drain and pat off excess water with paper towels. Set aside.
Brown the garlic and pork in olive oil. Add mushrooms, then tomato/spaghetti sauce. Add salt, pepper, sugar and soy sauce to taste. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally to prevent the sauce from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat then allow to cool a little.
Preheat oven to 350° F or 175° C. Line a 9-inch square pan with foil. Spoon a little sauce onto the bottom of the pan, just enough to cover the surface.
Get one lasagna and lay it on a clean, flat surface. Spoon sauce onto the length of the lasagna, then sprinkle grated cheese, as little or as much as you want.
Starting from one end, roll the lasagna, pressing a little to pack the roll tightly. Place the lasagna roll seam-side down on the pan.
Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each piece of lasagna. If there's any leftover sauce, pour on top of the lasagna rolls.
Pour the bechamel sauce on top of the lasagna rolls. Top with more (more, more!) grated cheese.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and/or lightly browned at the top.
Serve and enjoy! 🙂

As you probably guessed, I don’t really do exact measurements of the ingredients I use. I’m too used to just cooking and going by taste, so I just approximated the amounts I used. Use the amounts indicated here more as a guide than a rule when cooking, and always trust your own palate. 😉
So there. I hope you learned something from me today, and if you decide to make these too, I hope you could hit me back in the comments section and show me your lasagna rolls too. 🙂
