If it’s Thursday it must be time for CEiMB! This week’s recipe is Portobello Lasagna Rollups with Easy Tomato Sauce from pages 152-153 of “The Food You Crave”, by Ellie Krieger- and was chosen by the lovely Marthe from Culinary Delights. Natalie from What’s for Supper? has been nice enough to take on the overall responsibility for Craving Ellie from Leigh at Lemon Tartlet and the Dust Bunnies, who had other things to attend to.
I enjoyed the recipe- had leftovers for lunch today in fact. The rollups are a nice easily portioned change from the usual layered type lasagna. I did add some onion and garlic as I thought the recipe needed them. I also added a bit of lean Italian sausage to the mushroom portion of the sauce. It added a few calories but lots of flavour. The whole wheat lasagna is (I think) better and more satisfying than regular white pasta and with the spinach adds a bit better nutrition to the dish. Since I was in a bit of a hurry making this, I used The Silver Palate bottled Marinara for the sauce. Easy peasy and good!
Thanks to Marthe, Natalie and to Leigh for starting the whole thing! Head on over to the Craving Ellie in My Belly blogroll and check out all the other rollups.
