How to make Lasagna Rolls With Homemade Marinara Sauce

To make the Homemade Marinara Sauce:

Step 1: Into a pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Once hot, add the garlic and cook until aromatic.

Step 2: Stir in the tomatoes while breaking them apart. To taste, season with salt and pepper. Let the mixture simmer for about 15 minutes or until the sauce has reduced a little and the tomatoes are soft.

Step 3: To the pot, add the oregano along with the basil and red chilli flakes. Stir until incorporated. Set the sauce aside when done.

Lasagna Rolls:

Step 4: In a bowl, place the ricotta cheese, half of the mozzarella cheese, spinach, salt, and pepper. Mix well until combined.

Step 5: Into the bottom of the baking dish, spoon 1/3 of the tomato sauce. Add 1 lasagna noodle at a time. On the surface, add and spread a few tbsp of the cheese filling. Now, roll the noodles up, then place them into the baking dish seam-side-down.

Step 6: Do the same with the rest of the noodles and cheese filling. Once done, spoon the rest of the tomato sauce over the lasagna rolls and top with the leftover mozzarella cheese.

Step 7: Loosely cover the baking dish with aluminium foil before placing it in a 350 degrees F oven to bake the lasagna for about 15 minutes.

Step 8: When done, remove from the oven and garnish the lasagna rolls with some fresh parsley, basil leaves, and Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
