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~

    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.

  4. Lynn says:

    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. 🙂 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. 🙂
