3/4 lb. ground beef
1/2 onion, minced
1 1/2 cups shredded 6-Cheese Italian Blend*
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
*Plus more for dusting over top of roll-ups
Creamy Alfredo Sauce (recipe here)
Brown ground beef and onions; drain and set aside.
Boil lasagna noodles according to package instructions, but just until al dente’ and pliable. Drain and rinse with cold water; lay noodles flat on a piece of plastic wrap or parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups of the ground beef/onion mixture with ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, 6-cheese Italian blend, beaten egg, salt, pepper and chopped basil. Mix thoroughly to combine.
Place several spoonfuls of meat/cheese mixture along the length of each lasagna noodle and roll up (you should have 12-15).
In a large 13 x 9″ baking dish sprayed with cooking spray, ladle 1/2 of the Creamy Alfredo Sauce over bottom of pan.
Place lasagna roll-ups, seam side down, on top of sauce. Cover roll-ups with remaining sauce. Dust tops with more 6-cheese Italian blend and mozzarella cheese.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Cover baking dish tightly with foil and bake 40-45 minutes or until bubbly. Remove from oven and let cool 10-15 minutes before serving.
Serve with some Crusty Hearth Bread and a side salad.
Note – Lasagna Roll-Ups can be made ahead, wrapped in plastic wrap and frozen. Simply thaw when ready to use and assemble as directed. Leave out the beef for a vegetarian version.
