Buona Vita Meatballs, baked at 350° for 15 minutes or until heated through


Lasagna sheets, par-boiled until flexible

1 1/2 cups

Mozzarella cheese, shredded

1/4 cup

Parsley, finely chopped

3 1/2 cups

Ricotta cheese, drained

16 oz.

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.

Cook's Tip

Lasagna filling is a great way to experiment with fillings. Try goat cheese for a stronger flavor, or use heavy cream for a richer texture. Add more herbs for an aromatic filling, or kick it up with spicy chili’s or peppers.
All Buona Vita products are designed to be reheated to an internal temperature of 165 Degrees prior to serving.
