So today is another great day of the week: Thursday! That means it’s time for Craving Ellie in My Belly. There has been a change at CEiMB: Leigh didn’t have enough time to host CEiMB anymore, so Natalie stepped up to take over: thanks!! If ever you need any help what so ever: please email me!!! (I’m serious: do email me!) This means we have a new website, so check it out here and if you like what you see and would like to join in, please do!! We would love to cook with you! All you need is a copy of the book Food You Crave by Ellie Krieger and the willingness to cook with us for at least 2 out of 4 weeks.
So this week it was my turn to pick something delicious and healty for us all to cook and boy was it difficult to choose! There are so many great recipes in this book, but eventually I settled on Portobello Lasagna Rollups with Easy Tomato Sauce from pages 152 and 153.
In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring a few times, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Add the remaining ingredients and cook, uncoverd, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Portobello Lasagna Rollups with Easy Tomato Sauce
Cook the noodles according to the package directions. Drain well and spread them out on a sheet of aluminum foil or waxed paper to prevent them from sticking.
Spread 1 cup of the remaining tomato sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Spread out about 2 tablespoons of the ricotta mixture onto a lasagna noodle. Top with about 1,5 tablespoons of the mushroom mixture, then roll up the noodle and stand it up or lay it down in the baking dish. Repeat with remaining noodles, ricotta mixture, and mushroom mixture. Spread the remaining 1,5 cups tomato sauce over the lasagna rolls. Top with the Parmesan and mozzarella, cover loosely with foil, and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15 minutes more.
Up next for CEiMB are two great picks, I’m already looking forward to both of them:
