Recipe Comments & Reviews

I really liked it! I have to cook for to grown men, and one is hard to please. They both really enjoyed it. I did add Italian sausage to help entise them to eat it.
I made this and it was good. More than likely will never make again. I'm not the greatest when it comes to cooking. It was really difficult for me to roll these and keep everything together and I ended up just making regular lasagna. Something I don't normally eat. And I added fresh spinach and mushrooms to the recipe.My friend is a guinea pig for me and he absoultely loved this. I rated this recipe 5 stars because my friend did ask to make it again.
I made this recipe. It tasted good, but not special I probably would not make it again using all the sauce. They did not look like your picture. In fact, the rollups were indistinguishable. Looked like a regular pan of lasagna. I will try 1 cup under, and top with 1 cup. Heat the rest to serve with the lasagna.
This turned out great, the only thing i woul dchange for next time i make it is add more mushrooms, crushed red peppers and fresg minced garlic. GREAT DINNER!!!!
Great recipe! I had a little fresh spinach in the frig and sauted it with the mushrooms (sliced) and a little pressed garlic until there was no liquid left in the skillet. Then I added this mix to the ricotta-pesto mixture. Yum!
It was great, only we like more sauce. I rolled up the noodle and pesto with meat sauce also. It was thicker, but GREAT! Thanks for the idea!
It was a hit with my teenage daughters! Serving easy that they can also prepare
I made the roll ups, wrapped individually in plastic wrap and
stored in the freezer. I take out the quantity I need, thaw
and bake with the tomato sauce. Really handy to have in the
freezer when you need a quick meal. Also, much easier to
serve than a pan of lasagna.
It took quite a bit longer to make then what the directions said. Definitely recommend not putting the sauce all the way one end of the noodle. When rolling, the sauce oozed out. Also, I sliced the mushrooms, not chopped. I like whole mushrooms, though. Was very good and will definitely be making it again!
