About Me

Phoenix, Arizona, United States
The most important thing in my life is my family. I love my dear husband and 4 wonderful children (ages 11 through 18). I am a stay-at-home mom (my dream job!). Some of my favorite things to do include cooking (and eating!), photography, reading, piano, flute, watching my favorite TV shows, swimming, traveling, and most recently...using the rip stick with my kids. I would love to attend culinary school someday & fit my love of photography in with that somehow. My dream vacation is Italy - something I was recently blessed to experience! I'd love to return and see more of that beautiful and DELICIOUS country! My days are usually full of running kids to and from activities - scouts, sports, music and church. Sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe, but I absolutely LOVE my crazy life and the people I am lucky enough to share it with!

Lasagna Rolls with Herbed Cheese (from Robin Miller's 'Robin Rescues Dinner')

PREP TIME: 15 to 20 minutes· COOK TIME: 20 to 25 minutes

I think lasagna rolls might be cooler than regular lasagna. Why? Because they're easier to serve and they look better on your plate! I like to make tons of the rolls so I can have them handy in the freezer. As for the prepared sauce, use your favorite bottled tomato sauce. I like to serve these with Oven-Roasted Green Beans from the sides section.

Cooking spray
12 lasagna noodles
1 cup soft herbed cheese (such as Boursin or Alouette)
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 1/2 cups prepared tomato sauce
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Coat a shallow baking pan with cooking spray.

2. Cook the lasagna noodles according to package directions.
Drain and set aside.

3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the herbed cheese, mozzarella, and basil. Mix well.

4. Arrange the lasagna noodles on a flat surface. Spoon a thin layer (about % inch thick) of the cheese mixture onto each noodle. Starting from one of the shorter sides, roll up the noo­dles and secure with wooden picks. Place the rolls side-by-side in the prepared pan. Pour the tomato sauce on top and then sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.

5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the cheese filling melts and the top is golden brown.

Serves 4
