Looking back, I would have done things differently and these 3 Cheese Lasagna Rolls would have fit nicely into my "Be My Valentine" plan which goes like this:
You're living at college or university, it's Valentine's Day and you are without a Valentine.
instead of starting the day feeling lonely, you begin the day by taking 10 minutes to mix together a few ingredients such as creamy low-fat cottage cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese, grated Parmesan, dried basil and chopped frozen broccoli.
you spread that mixture on a fresh lasagna noodle...
and wrapped those Lasagna Rolls in plastic wrap to store in the fridge.
Now what if…
You went to class and found the nerve to ask that certain someone you recently met (who also happens to be single) if they’d be interested in popping by your place later on to try out a new pasta dish you’re working on.
What if that person said…"Yeah sure"!!!
That’s when you…
- Book it home after class
- Text your single friends and tell them you can’t hang out tonight
- Give a BIG "Thank YOU" to little ole Cupid
- Pop the Lasagna Rolls in the microwave (don't forget to remove the plastic wrap first)
- Get panicky because you have no wine
- Thank Cupid again when that certain someone shows up with a bottle of vino.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: under 5 minutes
8 fresh lasagna noodles (or 8 cooked lasagna noodles)
2 cups low-fat cottage cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp dried oregano (or dried basil)
1½ cups frozen broccoli (or spinach), thawed, chopped and squeezed dry
Store bought pasta sauce
In a bowl, combine egg, cottage cheese, mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, oregano and chopped broccoli. Mix well.
Spread each lasagna noodle with equal amounts of cheese broccoli mixture (leave some space at the end). Roll lasagna noodles. Wrap each with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.
To cook, remove plastic wrap from roll, place lasagna rolls on a plate, cover with a damp paper towel and cook on high in the microwave for 1 minute.
