Slightly Savory Saturday


P1010346Today I thought I would share a real fabulous recipe for Florentine Lasagna Roll-Ups.  This recipe looks fancy and difficult but it is a piece of cake. Trust me!  For those wanting a vegetarian option this is the ticket and a tasty one at that.

I always find it is easier to assemble all of my ingredients ahead of time and have them all measured out in preparation. That way I don’t have to be running all over the kitchen getting the ingredients at the last minute. I also use a “garbage bowl” to throw all the trash in to discard it all at once instead of making endless trips to the trash can.  It is a huge time saver.

But onto the recipe for this fabulous entree.  Hope you enjoy it as much I enjoy making it and sharing with you.

Florentine Lasagna Roll Ups

12 fluted lasagna noodles (I usually just use the entire box–15-16 because who wants a few rogue noodles hanging around?  Just decrease the amount of filling in the roll ups to accommodate)

2 TBSP butter

3/4 cup chopped onion (I only had red onion and it worked fine)

1 10 oz pkgs frozen chopped spinach, cooked and drained well

1 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup sour cream

1 egg, slightly beaten

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup flour

1 1/2 tsp instant chicken bouillon

1 cup half and half

1 cup milk

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook lasagna noodles and cool in bowl of cold water.

2. Saute onions in 2 TBSP butter until tender.

3. Combine spinach, onions,mozzarella, sour cream, egg and set aside.

4. Melt 1/4 cup butter. Stir in flour, bouillon and pepper. Stir in milk and cream and bring to a boil, stirring constantly while boiling for 1 minute.

  1. Goodness, does that ever look YUMMY! And I couldn’t help but notice the gorgeous teapot on your kitchen counter–next to last image! I love it!

    Hope you all have an awesome weekend, Beth Ann!

    Hugs from Ecuador,

  2. What time should I be over? It looks delish! :) Giggle giggle

  3. I was wondering what to fix for dinner today and this is the answer!!!! Thanks!!!!!! Hugs………………..

  4. Those look very good and elegant. I love the garbage bowl trick. It makes clean-up so easy and keeps your work station nice and clean. Jake would love these.

  5. Not only do you give us the recipe but time saving tips. No excuses for having no time to prepare. I’m inspired! Thank you. Delightful recipe post.

  6. Yum! I happen to have a box of lasagna noodles that I didn’t know what to do with! This looks fabulous… Thanks for sharing. I love this because you always give me great ideas. :) Have a great weekend!!! xoxo

  7. Sounds like a lot of work but I’m sure my Hubby would love them. I’ll have to put him to work cooking! lol

  8. This looks like a great meal for next week! Thanks for sharing and I can’t wait to try it out.

  9. Yum, that looks so pretty! Beth Ann, do you have Virgo in your horoscope chart? The reason I ask is that someone so organized as to put all the ingredients in separate bowls, then mix them together sounds very methodical (one of Virgo’s excellent attributes!)

  10. It looks wonderful! CH would love this as we are going meatless for a bit. And I will be putting the noodles on that paper towel to soak up the water.. :) Some crusty bread and a salad… good to go!

    • This is a great meatless meal, let me tell you. It makes a lot and we had leftovers for a few lunches afterwards. The paper towel trick is a good one—-they definitely need to be dried before you put the filling in them.

  11. I just had to hold myself back from licking the screen. seriously. I have to try this. the kids probably won’t eat spinach, but I can probably find an alternative and it will still be Awesome.

    • Haha! Glad it looked good to you! They were fun to make and pretty yummy. I imagine you can switch it up easily to put something in it that the kids would eat. Let me know.

  12. Oh, yummy, a new recipe for my next dinner party. I’m gonna hold you to the “piece of cake” part. Lol. It really looks delicious. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Um, yes please! This is now on my pinterest and my grocery list has been updated to include what I need to make these. Super excited!

  14. With those ingredients set out in clear bowls, it looks like you’re ready to do a food cooking show on TV. Hmmmm, I wonder if I could convince Randy to eat spinach. This looks really really tasty.

    • It was really a good dish—something a little different for a change. I love spinach but if you are not a spinach lover it probably would not be a winner.

  15. Looks yummy!
