Flat lasagna sheets are piled with herbed ricotta cheese and spinach, filled with Buona Vita Meatballs, rolled tight and baked in a casserole dish with a robust tomato sauce infused with Italian seasoning, and served sliced as an appetizer.
Buona Vita Meatballs, baked at 350° for 15 minutes or until heated through
Lasagna sheets, par-boiled until flexible
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Parsley, finely chopped
Ricotta cheese, drained
Marinara sauce with Italian seasoning
Pre-heat oven to 350° degrees.
To make filling; in a medium bowl combine 1⁄2 cup mozzarella, parsley, and ricotta cheese and mix thoroughly. Set aside.
Lay par-boiled lasagna and on a clean surface. Spread 3 Tbsp. of the ricotta cheese mixture on each lasagna sheet, stopping just before the end of one side. Place a Buona Vita Meatball on the close end and tightly roll each sheet.
In a baking dish, spread a thin layer of sauce on the bottom. Place each lasagna roll in the dish, and top with remaining pasta sauce. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella, cover with tin-foil, and bake 15 minutes. Remove tin foil and bake an additional 5-7 minutes until cheese is slightly golden.
Secure each lasagna roll with a tooth pick and serve.
