Take-out Tuesday, Red & White Lasagna Rolls, “Roll Tide”Rolls!

HH thinks he hates lasagna


He really doesn’t, he just thinks he does…

He loves  Spaghetti Cassoulet and Italian Tetrazzini


He loves  Meatball Sub Casserole


So when I feel like having a little lasagna, I just disguise it  😎


A little white sauce topped with spinach


and a ricotta mix


Some sprinkles of Fontina


Rock and Roll


He’ll never recognize it now


I’m going to bury these little bundles in a sea of sausage marinara


Just a little extra insurance because I know he loves a meaty sauce


Uh oh, it’s starting to look like lasagna again


It might need a little more disguising~

“What’s for dinner?”

“Oh, you’re going to love it honey, it’s called “Roll Tide” Rolls!Β Β  πŸ™‚

    Oh, Jenna, you come up with the greatest ideas!! I am going to try this dish and make one for my daughter who’s now back to work after having a baby and having a hard time coordinating dinner for the family! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  3. Whew! Glad the game went well Saturday. Roll Tide.
    I shouldn’t look at your yummy Roll Tide Rolls at this time of day close to dinner when I am hungry. Clever ideas for various versions.

    Sneaky! Sounds like a great meal and I watched the game with you on Saturday! Let’s just say your game went MUCH better than mine on Sunday:@)

    Hi Jenna. I just pinned this. I think it is perfect for smaller batch cooking, and I have just found a great source for homemade ricotta. I am excited to give it a try.

    As a TN Vol I am not so sure about the name. πŸ™‚ But I love the idea of rolling; thinking it will be especially nice for packed teen lunches. Have a good day!

  7. CoziNest says:

    Jenna, you have made me want to get in the kitchen and cook. That is no small accomplishment.

  8. These look great. I love lasagna rolls – they are so esay to serve, and people just gobble them up!

  9. Kim says:

    Excusing the name (ahem), this dish looks delicious. I have almost everything I need to make this. I think I’ll call it Christmas Lazagna. (It has red and green!) HH would never eat anything named Roll Tide Rolls, especially after last weekend. πŸ™‚
