Lasagna Roll Ups

SINCE our children left the nest, lasagna has been relegated to company fare since most recipes make enough for a crowd. But then I saw a recipe that rolled lasagna noodles into individual servings, and I adapted my original recipe to this efficient way of preparing it. Now my husband and I enjoy this entree often. -Virginia Foley, Manchester, New Hampshire

    Although this recipe was easyto make, it was dry and did not have a good taste. My grandchildren love lasagna but did not eat this because it did not taste good.

    This was such a delicious recipe and my husband and I liked it so much better then the traditional lasagna. You can do half the strips for little ones. Will for sure make these again!!

    This is a good, fast weekday alternative to making traditional lasagna. We're adding it to our rotation.
