So my husband and I were craving some lasagna but making a whole large pan of lasagna for just two people always seems like a silly idea so in search of something more in the realm of “dinner for two” we found Lasagna Roll Ups!
You are going to need 1 package of lasagna noodles, 1 pound mozzarella cheese, 1 (15ounce) container of ricotta cheese, 1 pound of ground beef, 1 pound of parmesan cheese, 1 egg, 2 handfuls of parsley, 1 small onion, 3 garlic cloves, 1 (16oz) can tomato puree, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning.
First thing you want to do is chop the onion and garlic into really small pieces. Then grab a large sauté pan and heat olive oil and then sauté the onion and garlic. Then add the beef to the pan and season with salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and italian seasoning. (I also strayed from the recipe I found and added some garlive salt and onion powder for a little extra flavor). Then cook till brown and drain the meat mixture. Place meat back in the pan and add the tomato puree.
I strayed again from the recipe online and choose to add a little water (about ½ cup) to the meat sauce to make it a little less thick. I also added a splash of heavy cream to give it a creamy tomato sauce vibe. Let this simmer while you cook everything else. (click read more below to get the rest of the recipe)
