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

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~

See the white sauce oozing out of this “not lasagna?”  it’s ok to swoon a little…

“What’s for dinner?”

“Oh, you’re going to love it honey, it’s called “Roll Tide” Rolls!   🙂

Red & White Lasagna Rolls, Roll Tide Rolls

  • Servings: 4-6
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

9  lasagna noodles

1 cup Light Alfredo sauce, like Classico Asagio Romano Alfredo

2 cups Marinara, with or without meat*

1 cup light ricotta cheese

3 oz Fontina or Asagio cheese, grated

2 oz freshly shaved Parmesan cheese

fresh spinach leaves

salt and pepper

Cook lasagna noodles until just done and rinse in cool water.  Mix ricotta with Parmesan and season with salt and pepper.  Lay out lasagna noodles in a row and spread with a little layer of Alfredo sauce.  Top with spinach leaves.  Using your fingers top spinach with a dot of ricotta here and there.  Sprinkle with grated Fontina or Asagio cheese.

Place 1 cup of marinara sauce in the bottom of a prepared 8″ x 8″ baking dish.  Carefully roll up lasagna noodles and place them side by side on the sauce bed.  Top each roll with a teaspoon of sauce.  Cover all the rolls with remaining marinara sauce.  Top with remaining cheese.

Refrigerate for up to 24 hours or bake at 325 for 30-45 minutes.  Baking time may be slightly longer if the dish is cold.  Serve carefully, keeping bundles in tact.  Makes 4-6 servings

*I use jarred Marinara sauce and put it in the slow cooker with browned Italian sausage, and add Italian seasoning and garlic and let it simmer on low for 3-4 hours to develop a richer flavor.   I make a big batch and freeze the rest for another meal.

Using both red and white sauce makes this extra smooth and creamy good~

    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.

    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. 🙂 But I love the idea of rolling; thinking it will be especially nice for packed teen lunches. Have a good day!

    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. 🙂
