Slow Cooker Lasagna Ricotta Rolls
I am a tried and true pasta lover. It really doesn’t matter what kind of pasta either. Put a plate of pasta with a yummy sauce in front of me and I am a fan!
As I was looking through the pretty pictures of a magazine I spotted a rolled lasagna recipe and immediately thought to myself that I could make that in my slow cooker.
And so, I got some ingredients together and set out to give it a try.
The key to getting the pasta just right is to cook the lasagna noodles on the stove-top until they are not completely done, just al dente. You want the noodles cooked enough to be able to roll them up , but not too much that they are falling apart when you do roll them.
The rest of the recipe is easy to make, you just make a ricotta cheese mixture, roll up the lasagna noodles and bake them in your slow cooker.
The result is fantastic!

I’m making this dish for the first time but I have also added spinach (frozen, thawed, and squeezed out excess water), as this is what I put in my ricotta mix and people seem to really like it. I really don’t see why we won’t LOVE this, but I will come back and let you know how it turned out.
Thanks so much for the recipe!
