Step 1: Ingredients

  • Lasagna Noodles
  • Italian Sausage
  • Pepperoni
  • Shredded Mozzarella
  • Ricotta Cheese
  • Diced Tomatoes
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Oregano
  • Fresh Garlic
  • Parsley or Basil
  • Optional: Crushed Red Pepper

For our vegetarian friends, we suggest substituting the Sausage and Pepperoni with a nice roasted vegetable blend consisting of:

  • Sweet red peppers
  • Onion
  • Mushroom
  • Zucchini
  • Yellow Squash
  • Carrots
  • Olive Oil

Step 2: Preparation

  1. Begin by adding your noodles to a pot of boiling water. Cook a few extra because it never fails that a couple will break and tear while boiling, and you are going to want nice solid pieces for this recipe.
  2. Once the noodles are boiling, begin making the sauce.
  3. Add the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes to a sauce pan on med to low heat.
  4. Season with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic, and basil.
  5. Mix well, then cover and let simmer.
  6. Next you are going to want to cook the sausage down.
  7. As the sausage cooks, break it up with the spatula. You are going to want the meat to be pretty fine in order to roll it in the noodles.
  8. Optional: Add crushed red pepper to the sausage as it cooks if you like a little 'kick' on your dish.
  9. When the sausage is complete, mix it in a bowl with the ricotta cheese.
  10. Season the mix with a little oregano and basil.
  11. Mix well.

Step 3: Roll 'em Up

  1. Pour about half of the sauce into the bottom of your baking dish.
  2. Lay a lasagna noodle out flat on your counter or work area.
  3. Spread a thin layer of the sausage/cheese mix on the noodle. Be careful not to make it too thick otherwise when it is rolled it will all squeeze out the sides.
  4. Lay out four pepperoni on the noodle.
  5. Sprinkle a little mozzarella cheese on top of the pepperoni.
  6. Take the noodle at one end and gently roll it up. Do not roll them too tight or the stuffing will just squirt out of the sides.
  7. Gently place the roll into your baking dish and repeat the process until you have filled the baking dish.
  8. Pour the remainder of the sauce over the top of the rolls.
  9. Sprinkle mozzarella on top of the sauce.
  10. Place in a 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes. You are just looking to melt everything.
