Caprese Lasagna Roll Ups – loaded with Mozzarella, fresh tomatoes and fresh basil!Ingredients8 lasagna noodles, uncooked14 oz freshly shredded, low-moisture part skim Mozzarella cheese,divided 3/4 cup Ricotta cheese1 large egg white1/3 cup freshly, finely shredded Parmesan cheese(about 1 1/4 oz) freshly ground black pepper
3 – 4 medium Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced (about 1/6 inch thick slices)1/4 cup chopped fresh basil, plus more for garnish1 cup marinara sauce,Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Cook pasta according to directions listed on package to al dente. Drain pasta (DO NOT rinse with water) and align lasagna noodles in a single layer on a large sheet of parchment or wax paper. For filling, in a large mixing bowl, whisk together ricotta cheese and egg white until well blended. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Mix in 12 oz. of the Mozzarella cheese and season with black pepper to taste (I wouldn’t recommend seasoning with salt just because the cheeses already have plenty of salt). Place 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture over each lasagna noodle and spread into an even layer, going from one end of the lasagna to the other. Align 4 thin tomato slices over cheese mixture then sprinkle fresh basil over top. Snugly roll lasagna noodles to opposite end. Spread about 1/4 cup pasta sauce in the bottom of an 11 x 7 inch baking dish. Align lasagna roll ups, seam side down in dish. Top each roll up with about 2 Tbsp of the pasta sauce (covering edges of pasta so they don’t dry out while baking). Sprinkle top with remaining 2 oz. shredded Mozzarella. Bake in preheated oven 30 minutes. Remove from oven, plate pasta and garnish with plenty of basil ribbons. Serve warm.\
