Pepperoni Lasagna Roll-Ups

This recipe came from Taste of Home magazine.  So, if some of you are regulars of Taste of Home, you may already have this recipe.  This is also a great recipe that you can make however many you need and won’t have a ton of leftovers.  I like to make this the week before we go on vacation so I don’t have to worry about having extra food to potentially have to throw out.

3 lasagna noodles
3/4 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 tsp minced chives
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
24 slices pepperoni
3 slices swiss cheese, cut into thirds
1 cup meatless spaghetti sauce
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese

Cook noodles according to package directions; drain.  Combine ricotta cheese, chives, oregano and basil; spread 1/4 cup over each noodle to within 1/2 inch of edges.  Top with pepperoni and Swiss cheese; carefully roll up.

Place seam side down in a greased shallow 1 qt. baking dish; top with spaghetti sauce.  Cover and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly.

Uncover; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.

This is great for us because Kayla will eat it, Andrew will not.  So, we really only need the three noodles.  But, I’ve doubled before to have more also.  Make what you will eat with this one!  Next time, I think I’ll try hiding a veggie in the sauce and see if anyone notices.  I’ll keep you posted!

    Do you think you could forgo the curdy cheeses and do sausage instead of pepperoni? I don’t do curds or pepperoni – but i like the idea! (i am as bad as your kids – aren’t i!) 🙂

      Try it out and let us know! Maybe use another shredded cheese or sliced provolone? Just an idea….

    PS – I consider Ricotta a curdy cheese in case you were wondering! 🙂
