These Lasagna Roll Ups make comfort food super easy and gourmet. Today Im making these lasagna rolls ups in a mug for a romantic dinner for two.

Todays delicious recipe is sponsored by my friends at BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of Bertolli.

What are your plans this Valentines Day? I always stay in because its a touch more special when you prepare a meal with love.

Today Ill show you how easy it is to make a gourmet comforting meal for two that will lure you to stay in this year

LASAGNA ROLL UPS

Lasagna roll ups are simply sheets of lasagna, stuffed and rolled. As simple as it sounds, its in fact so divine!

There are so many ways and things you can stuff your lasagna sheets with, however today were keeping it simple. As simple and probably as Italian as can be!

Ive used a mixture of ricotta, Parmesan and basil pesto for the stuffing. If youd like to add veggies, I would probably say sauted spinach and mushrooms are your best bet.

Once the lasagna roll ups are stuffed, theyre rolled up and placed in a rosa sauce. Plus to add an extra layer of flavor, I topped them with the same rosa sauce. The sauce is PURE Tuscan love.

ROSA SAUCE

Theres nothing like a good pasta sauce. Nothing. Not only because we love pasta. But because a good sauce adds plenty of flavor with zero effort!

Ive used Bertoli Sauces today. Its like bringing a taste of Tuscany to my home. Out of all the pasta sauces, Bertoli is the only Tuscan sauce cooked lightly with olive oil creating layers of fresh flavor.

How to Make Rosa Sauce? Super Simple, youll need to mix two parts Bertolli Marinara sauce to one part Bertolli Alfredo Sauce with Aged Parmesan.

What I use Rosa Sauce for?

  • Lasagna Roll Ups hello!
  • Pasta, cooked or baked
  • Chicken Parmesan
  • Seafood
  • Meatballs
  • Dips
  • Gourmet Pizzas
  • Veggie Casserole
  • Soups

Now all you need is to enter your zip code and get the Bertolli Traditional Marinara with Italian Herbs and Fresh Garlic. Also find the Bertolli Alfredo With Aged Parmesan Cheese and make some Rosa sauce now!

Lets make the lasagna rolls ups step by step together.

LASAGNA ROLL UPS RECIPE

Start off by gathering your ingredients. Bertolli Sauces, Mozzarella cheese and cooked lasagna sheets (if using fresh lasagna, dont cook the sheets).

The filing is ricotta, parmesan cheese, basil pesto and seasoning. Mix all of that together in a bowl.

Use a teaspoon to spread the filling along the lasagna sheets.

Roll Each sheet until it looks like a tube.

Since were cooking for two this Valentines Day, Ive cooked my lasagna roll ups in a mug.

You can opt for a a deep oven safe casserole if youre making this recipe for a crowd or potluck.

The beginning of magic starts now, layer the bottom of the mug with the Bertolli Marinara sauce.

Now add in the Alfredo Sauce to create the Rosa sauce.

Use a spoon to swirl them together. YUM!

Add the mozzarella cheese over the sauce, and dont mix it in. The cheese acts a glue here to bing the lasagna and sauce.

Add the lasagna rolls over the rosa sauce. For a large soup mug like mine, I use three roll ups per mug.

Top the rolls with another layer of Marinara sauce and Alfredo sauce.

Cover the mugs with foil and off to baking they go.

Once theyre out of the oven, youll need to flip them. The best way to do that is to remove the foil and place a plate over the top of the mug.

Then flip/invert the mug on to a plate. Watch as the rosa sauce flows beautifully!

Garnish the lasagna roll ups with chopped fresh garlic and shredded Parmesan cheese.

I love serving these with a side of green or a simple salad. YUM.

LASAGNA TIPS

-Use Fresh Lasagna sheets for a shortcut, otherwise, cook the lasagna sheets ahead of time. You can cook it up to two days in advance.

-Use quality sauces such as Bertolli for quality tasting lasagna. This recipe is all about the sauce.

-If you want to make this recipe a spinach lasagna roll up, add 1/2 cup of sauteed/steamed fresh spinach to the filling.

-If you want to make this recipe for a crowd, use a deep oven safe dish and arrange the lasagna rolls as per the recipe. However if you feel flipping a large dish may be overwhelming (which it is!), then dont flip it. To do so, avoid the layer of cheese at the bottom of the dish and proceed with the recipe. Once the lasagna is ready, remove the foil, sprinkle a layer of cheese and place the lasagna back in the oven for just 10 minutes. Serve in the dish itself.

-This recipe makes a great potluck dish!
