simple step by step lasagna details
First, we start with the sauce. Chop fresh tomatoes and bell pepper, and grate the zucchini. Sauté the vegetables in olive oil with garlic, herbs and spices before adding the tomatoes and broth.
follow with noodles and cheese filling
Cook the noodles until al dente. While the gluten-free noodles are cooking, make the cheese filling—mix ricotta with another good melting cheese of your choice.
Add chopped fresh spinach, a hint of fresh garlic, nutmeg and fresh basil. The cheese filling is perfect for the lasagna roll ups.
assembling the cheese lasagna roll ups
Spoon the cheese mixture down the length of the noodles. Roll into a coil and place each seam-side down in the sauce. The noodles roll super easily, and the rolls hold their shape. Spoon some sauce over the top and add extra cheese.
That’s it! A simple gluten-free skillet lasagna dinner recipe. The lasagna rolls are super flavourful, filled with tasty cheese and spinach filling. The fresh veggie sauce is light, healthy and takes minutes to whip up.
What I love about this lasagna-inspired recipe is you don’t need canned tomatoes. The sauce is chunky and fresh tasting.
The herbs such as oregano, basil, bay leaf and a pinch of red pepper flakes for spiciness make everything super tasty.
These cheese lasagna rolls may seem complicated to make, but they are super easy to assemble. The best part, there is no layering of noodles, cheese and sauce, and the lasagna is made in one skillet. Sauce and all!
This lighter version of gluten-free lasagna is a perfect summer dinner recipe and a great way to use fresh tomatoes and zucchini.
The only other thing I would add to these cheese lasagna rolls is a side of our Gluten-Free Homemade Italian bread. YUM!
Do you want to add meat to the sauce?
No problem. Sauté one pound of ground beef, chicken or Italian sausage meat with the veggies and spices before adding the tomatoes. Then follow the same directions with the cheese lasagna roll ups.
