I love the ease of no bake lasagna noodles. It just makes the lasagna making process that much easier. However, boil and bake noodles must be used with making lasagna roll-ups. I had forgotten how much I dislike boiling the lasagna noodles because they stick to the pan and to each other. Today was no different. I began with 13 noodles in hopes of ending with 12. No such luck. One stick to the bottom of the pan and another somehow ended up with holes all through it. I did end up with 11 noodles which turned out to be perfect for us.
The roll-ups are fairly easy to make thanks to lightly sautéing the eggplant ahead of time. These roll-ups are delicious and really filling. My husband liked the fact that only a small amount of ricotta cheese was used. I just liked that they had lots of veggies and less cheese then I would use in traditional lasagna. There is plenty of flavor from the spices, onion, garlic, and cheeses. However, next time I think I’d add a cup of spinach to the ricotta cheese to add some additional flavor and vitamins.
