This is a good freeze and eat later meal. It uses tofu, but you'd never know it! My cooking co-op loved this recipe! You can individually freeze the roll ups on a cookie sheet and place in a freezer bag.

This was so yummy! I also had fun with the rolling but make sure you aren't in a hurry and are in the mood to cook. They really weren't difficult at all to do. However, I would suggest that after the noodles are done boiling, drain and seperate them and then let them cool for a few minutes before rolling. I added chopped mushrooms and very finely chopped onion and garlic to the cheese mixture but I can't seem to make myself cook without garlic and onions!Personally, I think the onions especially added to the taste. To give people making this for the first time an idea of how many lasagna noodles you need, I used 18 noodles in a 9x13 pan. I had three rows of six noodles. Also, I put a small handful of cheese mixture in each noodle. I'm always looking for recipes that work well with two people in the kitchen and this is definitely one of them! My husband and I chatted and drank wine while filling and rolling the noodles. Read More

I made these with my boyfriend and they were lacking flavor a bit. We decided to make them again but added a variety of peppers and more seasoning and they were better. We even added meat for one batch. Read More

Great starter recipe, but needed more 'bang' in flavor. I've made this quite a few times now and always add chopped fresh basil, 1/2 (10 oz.) box thawed frozen spinach for more green/health factor, dash of nutmeg to ricotta mixture and salt/pepper to taste. But the tofu addition is SUPERB (use soft or medium firm- breaks up easier). Great way to add more protein/vitamins for the kids and my kids love it because each roll is a perfect serving size- and pretty too. Just remember to go easy when spreading the filling on the lasagna, too much and it won't roll. I've made this for company, always get raves. It's a pretty dish and guest are always impressed that they can't taste the tofu and that the dish tastes great. Try it Moms! Read More

Excellent! I swapped out the tofu for whiskey and omitted the other ingredients. Also instead of a mixing bowl I just used a shot glass. A big hit! Read More

Loved it! For those with family members that do not particularily enjoy tofu I suggest crumbling it as you mix it in. It will blend in better with the ricotta. Read More

My family loved this. We had leftovers because it was very filling but they were gone the next day. You wouldn't even know there was tofu in it either. The textures blend well together. If it seems hard to roll up let the lasagna noodles cool a little so they are tacky instead of slippery and/or use less filling. The filling would go great in large shells too. Read More

Nice change of pace from lasagna. I left out the tofu and they turned out great. I didn't have the problems that others had with rolling up perhaps the tofu is the difference? Read More

I made this recipe and found a very easy way to do the roll ups. Just lay all the lasagna pieces edge to edge on a large piece of aluminum foil and push the mixture on as if you were doing a sushi roll, leaving 1" at the end of the lasagna. Spread the pasta sauce over the whole lot just like the mixture, and roll each one individually, took only a few minutes. Read More

I added some spices to the cheese mixture (basil thyme and oregano) it turned out very well. I was disappointed with the spinach I purchased though so make sure you have top quality spinach to start with. Read More
