As a variation to the Trini Lasagna recipe I did some posts ago, we decided to try out some lasagna rolls Trinistyle. These Trini lasagna rolls tasted just as well and you didn't have to worry about eating too much. They were already portioned in these neat rolls that you just serve, after it is cooled of course. They were very filling. After two lasagna rolls and a glass of beastly cold peanut punch I was good to go.
Lasagna Rolls Add to A Meal
This lasagna roll recipe, in my opinion, could be ideal to get everyone busy in the kitchen. You could set up a little assembly line: when one spreads the white sauce, the other puts the meat then another the cheese and lastly daddy could do the rolling: What a fantastic meal for the family to get involved.
Anyhow, I must say that this seems to be a habit, but after having this lasagna roll I just have to try another variation: this time I will open it up for my readers. If you have a idea for another variation of the good ole Lasagna recipe why not drop me an email or comment.
So once again I present to you a simple trini recipe from my kitchen to yours. Here's Lasagna Rolls. Enjoy!
