I have seen and tried so many lasagna recipes. I loved most of them, but my most favourite is these Ricotta-stuffed lasagna rolls with awing homemade herby marinara sauce made from scratch!


Homemade Marinara Sauce:

1 tbsp olive oil

1 28-oz. can of a whole, peeled tomatoes

1 clove of garlic, minced

3/4 tsp salt

1/3 tsp pepper

3 tsp finely chopped fresh basil

3 tsp finely chopped fresh oregano

Pinch red chilli flakes, optional

Lasagna Rolls:

10 lasagna noodles, cooked

3/4 c. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry in a paper towel

1 1/2 c. ricotta cheese

1 c. grated mozzarella cheese

Parmesan cheese

Fresh parsley and basil, roughly chopped

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

How to make Lasagna Rolls With Homemade Marinara Sauce

Homemade Marinara Sauce:

Step 1: In a pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Once hot, add the garlic and cook until aromatic.

Step 2: Add the tomatoes to the pot, stirring and breaking the pieces apart. To taste, season with salt and pepper. Let it simmer for about 15 minutes until the sauce is slightly reduced and the tomatoes are tender.

Step 3: Then, stir in oregano along with the basil and red chilli flakes (optional) until well incorporated. Set the sauce aside when done.

Lasagna Rolls:

Step 4: In a bowl, mix the ricotta cheese, half of the mozzarella cheese, spinach, salt, and pepper.

Step 5: Into the base of the baking dish, spoon 1/3 of the tomato sauce. Lay the lasagna out a piece at a time, then spread a few tbsp of the cheese filling onto the surface. Roll the noodles and put them into the baking dish, seam-side down.

Step 6: Do the same for the rest of the noodles and cheese filling. On top of the lasagna rolls, spoon the rest of the tomato sauce and top with the rest of the mozzarella cheese.

Step 7: Using aluminium foil, loosely tent the dish. Place in a 350 degrees F oven and bake for about 15 minutes. Uncover and continue baking for another 15 minutes. Step 8: Before serving, top the lasagna rolls with some fresh parsley, basil leaves, and Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
