Recipe: Pizza Lasagna Rolls
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 30-35 minutes
Yield: 6 servings
Serving size: 2 lasagna rolls
- 1½ cups light pasta sauce
- 12 whole wheat lasagna noodles, dry
- 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 green bell pepper, diced
- 1 onion, diced
- 1 (8-ounce) container baby bella mushrooms, thinly sliced
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- ⅛ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- ¾ cup low-fat ricotta cheese
- 48 turkey pepperonis
- ½ cup reduced-fat mozzarella shredded cheese
Preheat the oven to 350°F and pour ½ cup of the pasta sauce at the bottom, making a thin layer so the lasagna does not stick to the bottom, then set aside.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the lasagna noodles for 6-8 minutes, or until they are bendable. Do this in two batches as to not crowd the pot.
Set the cooked noodles aside on a baking sheet or large cutting board.
While the noodles are cooking, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil, bell pepper, onion, mushrooms, garlic powder, oregano, basil, black pepper, and red pepper flakes and cook until the vegetables are soft, about 8-10 minutes.
Being careful not to break the noodles, spread 1 tablespoon of ricotta cheese on each noodle. Evenly spread the vegetable mixture onto each noodle (about 1½ to 2 tablespoons each). Next, place 3 pepperonis on top of the vegetable mixture.
Gently roll each noodle up and place them seam-side down in the prepared baking dish.
Pour the remaining 1 cup of sauce over all of the lasagna rolls and evenly cover with the mozzarella cheese. Place 1 pepperoni on top of each roll.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
