YUMMY! and aesthetically pleasing. I did a few things different: I shredded rather than sliced my carrots (2 cups shredded carrots).. did not have broccoli so I doubled the sweet peas... used chicken broth rather than red wine and used 2 eggs rather than one. In addition I seasoned the sauted vegetables with lemon pepper, garlic pepper, adobo, oregano and basil (we love our food well seasoned)and used 4 cloves of fresh garlic rather than one. Only 12 rolls could fit in the 9*13 dish.
Everyone raved (including the chef!)
These were ok. The broccoli didn't go over. Hard to roll with pieces of broccoli in them. Spinach would be a better choice. Not really enough sauce to cover sufficiently. I would just layer next time.
This recipe surprised me. I didn't think my hubby would like it, but he LOVED it. It was much tastier than I thought it would be. I did waste alot of lasagne noodles, however. My veggie filling only stuffed 9 noodles, and they weren't overstuffed or anything. So don't waste noodles by cooking the whole box. You can only fit 12 in the dish anyway.
I enjoyed eating these rolls, but I thought they were a little tricky to make. (I am not an experienced chef, so take that with a grain of salt.) I thought the lasagna was a bit difficult to roll, or rather, to fold. Maybe manicotti would have been easier. Also, 16 oz. ended up being way too much for the amount of filling I had. Eight ounces would have been plenty. But, nonetheless, a very tasty dinner.
Excellent!! One note -- if you don't like the texture of peas, skip them. I thought that they would blend in with the other veggies, but they tend to burst in your mouth when you chew them. Everything else was wonderful.
I made this dish for friends who don't eat meat on Fridays during Lent. Man, it was great. The vegetables I used were carrots (came cut into skinny pieces in a bag), frozen peas, a red pepper, and broccoli. I added two extra garlic cloves and some dried basil, oregano, and pepper because of earlier reviews. I also bought large shells instead of the lasagna noodles, which turned out to be easy to stuff. As soon as my friends came in the door, they commented on the wonderful smell. The compliments kept coming all night. One friend (who likes mushrooms) said he might add mushrooms next time to make the taste of the other vegetables milder. I, on the other hand, thought the meal was perfect. My husband commented that the meal was not heavy like some pasta dishes can be. I plan to use it many more times to come.
Takes a bit of preparation but turns out pretty good. You definitely won't use the entire box of pasta - half is sufficient. The second time I made it, I was too lazy to make rolls so I just baked it lasagna style - layer of sauce, pasta, veggie mixture, cheese, sauce, veggies... etc. Can't really go wrong here.
If I could give this recipe 10 stars, I would. A couple hints: boil only 12 lasagna noodles so you won't have extras left over; make sure the broccoli and carrots are well cooked if you're fixing for kids; use more sauce than called for, especially if you're planning left overs. These are definitely company fare...tasty and satisfying!
