Poblano Lasagna Rolls

Lasagna rolls

[donotprint]Who doesn’t like lasagna? It is one of my favorite dishes because you can make so much with it, from the most authentic recipes to the craziest combinations. I have posted several lasagna recipes on this blog, but now I want to share one that was very simple and yet very delicious that Jon and my new roommate Chris loved. Is there a better comfort food than a plate of delicious lasagna?[/donotprint]

The how-to:

[donotprint]This dish is my entry for this week’s Presto Pasta Nights hosted by Cynthia from Kitchen Slave. I haven’t participated in that fun event for a long time, but I want to vindicate myself with these lasagna rolls.[/donotprint]


  • Roasted poblanos in the ricotta sounds delicious! Great idea for lasagna. Now, I'm hungry for lasagna . . .

  • looks so good! :)

  • And vindicated you are! The lasagna rolls look delicious – welcome back to Presto Pasta Nights. As my old auntie would say…Don't be a stranger!

  • Lasagna is the king of all comfort foods Ben. Love the twist you have here.

  • yes please! i am so trying this one.

  • The poblanos must have infused this with such a nice smoky taste. I can only imagine how good that must have been with the creamy cheese. Genius!

  • This is a great way to eat lasagna! I bet the poblanos are soo good in the rolls! Thanks for submitting to Presto Pasta Nights!

  • Love the addition of poblanos in this classic Italian dish. Have a wonderful weekend.

  • Ben, you know to handle peppers. Char them until black, allow them to sweat, peel off skins and then use the smoky, delicious peppers at your will. This dish is spectacular!

  • ooh, like the idea of the poblanos in the lasagna. Also, very clever to show pre-oven photograph. Every ingredient stands on its own and is more vibrant colored.
