Portabella and Spinach Lasagna Roll-Ups

You didn’t think I had it in me, did ya?

It’s true: your eyes do not deceive you. I made pasta. Of the lasagna varietal. There are some things spaghetti squash can’t fix, and that’s a lasagna craving.

Prior to making these lasagna roll-ups, I wasn’t sure what the biggity big deal was with them. I had seen and ignored roll-up recipes. In my head, I stewed: “why would you roll it up if you can just make a regular freaking lasagna? Roll-ups make me kinda mad. I’m gonna go make roll-ups.”

As I began handling the limp…err…wet noodles, smearing them with portabella and spinach cheesy filling, rolling them, saucing them, and sprinkling them, I was overcome with a sense of calm. Rolling up lasagna is therapeutic. Why had I never rolled lasagna before?

AND there’s more to the story. Roll-ups are really easy to serve with grace. For someone like me who can’t scoop anything out of a casserole dish without dropping 98% of it on the floor or someone’s lap, these roll-ups are a hassle-free solution. Your friends and family will thank you.

    The more I read these entries, the more I’m pretty sure that somehow we are connected by more than the internet. Yeah. Can’t serve anything from a casserole dish without half of it landing on the table. Jerry’s gotten semi-used to it, bless his little anal, mess-free heart. Opposites attract. Love lasagna rolls. 🙂 Heading to the recipe. Have a fabulous weekend, my dear.

    So funny, but you’re exactly right! Roll-ups are much more graceful than gloppy lasagna! I’ve always kinda had the same thought – why would you hassle with rolling when you can just make lasagna? I stand corrected! Heading over to OMV to check it out!! 😀

    Sometimes what we consider a mundane task can be quite calming the brain. Say, for instance, unwrapping a hundred Rolos for V-day candy. I hemmed and hauled, but it was too bad. You are a gal after my heart. I adore pasta, and I especially adore ‘shrooms and spinach together. Love this like crazy. Pinned!

    yuuuum!! and I totally giggled at the word limp, (and just now typing it) anyways, I just love this, going to have to make it and just not tell the boy there’s shrooms in it. I wonder if he would guess?

      I’m back in gluten toddler stage for sure. Up next, I’ll be running to focaccia bread. Then promptly stumble and fall once I remember I forgot how to bake with gluten 😉

    You are right, SOMETIMES spag squash does not cut the jam.
    Whatever that means.
    I made pasta the other day too and the hubs was like “is this secretly made of cauliflower or squash?” He was very suspicious.
    I am LOVING these rollups lady…so classy. I am totally a food-dropper too.
    I have been through manyyyyyyy white towels. I gave up shooting on them for that reason.

    Ha! I agree, probably the best excuse to make a roll-up is for a cleaner presentation. I feel like for just myself, I’d prefer traditional lasagna, but when guests are in the picture, as you show these turn sloppy lasagna into something truly beautiful.

    I love rolled things *exactly* because of what you said.. It’s easier to serve and then I can justify ‘just one more roll up’ which feels like a lot less than a scoop of molten cheesy lasagna 🙂
    These look awesome!
