Lasagna Roll Ups

Lasagna was my favorite food for many years as a child. This was a fun way to reimagine it and improve the macro distribution for a healthier rendition.



Ingredients:


For The Sauce:
  • 14 oz of diced tomatoes

  • 1/4 c tomato paste

  • 1/2 tablespoon dried basil

  • 1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon rosemary

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • 1 small yellow onion

  • 8 oz lean ground turkey

Other Ingredients:
  • 1 package brown rice or chickpea lasagna noodles

  • 2/3 cup cottage cheese

  • 2/3 cup cream cheese (low fat or full fat)

  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast (optional but great for added protein, B vitamins, and cheesy flavor)

  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella

Directions:

  1. dice onion and add to a frying pan over medium heat

  2. add minced garlic and cook until onions become translucent

  3. add diced tomatoes, tomato paste, salt, pepper, rosemary, Italian seasoning and basil
