BEST CHEESE FOR LASAGNA – Ricotta is the best cheese for lasagna. It is a light spongy cheese with a hint of sweetness. The combination of ricotta with the salty warmth of parmesan and mozzarella is what makes this a loved recipe. Don’t have ricotta in the refrigerator? Don’t worry. Cottage cheese can easily be used as a substitute. Just add the same amount (16 oz) to the cheese mixture. For a vegan version, use cashew ricotta, it’s delish!
SAUCE – For the spaghetti sauce, choose whichever brand that you like the most. Or if you have some extra time, try making this easy marinara sauce.
CREAM – The tomato sauce, whether canned or homemade, is mixed with heavy cream, (also known as whipping cream). For a vegan lasagna, just leave the cream and other dairy products out of the recipe. Then just substitute with oat or soy cream and your favorite brand of vegan cheese. Add some veggies and it will be a recipe that makes you smile!
How To Make 3 Cheese Lasagna Rolls
These 3 Cheese Lasagna Rolls are a snap to put together.
- Combine the stuffing ingredients.
- Roll the stuffing into the cooked lasagna noodles. Place the roll-ups in a pan.
- Cover with mozzarella cheese and bake (per recipe below). So simple and quick!
- Cook the lasagna noodles al dente, which means firm. They will be easier to work with and won’t tear as easily.
- Leave 1 inch at each end of the noodle to keep the filling inside.
- Place seam side down at the bottom of the dish to keeps them from unraveling.
- Don’t forget to divide the 2 cups of shredded mozzarella. One cup will be added to the cheese sauce, while the other will be sprinkled over the top of the dish. This topping will come out of the oven with an appetizing brown and warm crust.
