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]

Poblano lasagna rolls

The ingredients:

  • 12 lasagna noodles, cooked
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 lb Italian sausage, cut in small cubes
  • 2 poblano peppers, roasted, cleaned and chopped
  • 1 lb ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup Romano, Parmesan and asiago cheese mix
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Italian herbs to taste (oregano, basil, parsley, etc)
  • 3 cups tomato sauce
  • 1/2 lb mozzarella cheese, sliced

The how-to:

  1. Sautee onion and garlic in olive oil on an skillet. Add the Italian sausage and cook until it starts to brown.
  2. Pour 1 cup of the tomato sauce and the cooked sausage in a baking dish and spread all over the bottom.
  3. In a bowl mix the ricotta cheese, poblano peppers, cheese mix, eggs, herbs, salt and pepper.
  4. Extend a lasagna noodle over a cutting board and spread  about 1.5 – 2 TBSP of the cheese mixture in one half of the noodle.
  5. Roll carefully and place in the baking dish on top of the sauce and sausage. Repeat with the rest of the noodles.
  6. Pour the rest of the tomato sauce on top of the noodles and place the mozzarella slices on top.
  7. Bake at 350°F for 35-40 minutes. Let it cool down for about 5 minutes before serving.
