Yum. These are delicious. And they whip up quickly.
I love noodles and cheese too, who doesn't?
I kind of just pulled it together, so the recipe may be a tad choppy.

Recipe: M's Lasagna Rolls

First: Boil how every many noodles you need unitl al dente (about 8 minutes) in well salted water. I made about 10. Drain and rinse with cold water (so they don't stick together).


1 box ground turkey
1 TBL olive oil
4 TBL balsamic vinegar
1/2 shallot
2 garlic cloves


Put olive oil in large pan over medium heat. Add remaining ingredients and grill unti cooked through (about 10 minutes).
Set aside

Ricotta Mixture:

1 8oz container skim ricotta cheese
1 TBL garlic powder
1 TBL fresh rosemary
1 TBL italian herb mix
2 tsp. ground white pepper
2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup shredded parmesan
1/2 cup very sharp gouda (I get mine fresh from the farm, and they age it for us, about 6 months)

Mix all ingerdients in a large bowl, then add the turkey mixture to the cheese mixture.

What else you'll need:

I jar of spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese
balsamic vinegar
large baking dish


1. Lay one noodle out onto a cutting board, or other clean surface.
2. Spread 3/4 of your sauce on the bottom of your baking dish, and sprinkle with balsamic vinegar.
3. Spread a nice layer of meat mixture (maybe 1/4 cup, I'm not sure) over the noodle surface, leaving 2 inches at the end of the noodle (so you can seal it when rolled up).
3. Roll up and press to seal. (The starch should seal it just fine, if not use a little water, or egg white, I didn't need to use anything).
4. Place atop sauce in baking dish.
5. Continue until you're out of noodles and sauce.
6. Once all the noodles are in your baking dish top with a spoonful of sauce and a sprinkle of parm.
7. Bake for 25 minutes in a 375 degree oven, or until the cheese bubbles and the noodles are hot.
