I went to New York a couple years ago and found Tinkyada Jumbo Shell pasta. To this day I still cannot find the jumbo shells in Colorado. So long story short, yesterday I had a craving for stuffed shells, with one minor problem, I can’t find the shells. So I decided to get creative. I bought the Tinkyada lasagna pasta and figured I could do something with it.
Here is the recipe for my lasagna rolls, as I have decided to call them.
1 box Tinkyada Lasagna
1 jar Spanellis Pasta Sauce
1 cup of frozen spinach
2 garlic cloves
1 cup of Pacific vegetable broth
Rice cheese ( or any other cheese substitute)
2 Applegate Farms sweet italian sausage.
Pre-heat oven to 350
Boil water, once boiling, add pasta. Cook until mushy. Drain pasta and rinse with cold water. ( I have found that rinsing the pasta with cold water is really important with rice pasta)
Cook the sausage and chop up.
Chop the carrot, zucchini and garlic. Put in a microwavable bowl with the frozen spinach and the vegetable broth. Cover and microwave for 5 minutes
Take one piece of pasta, put some of the veggies and sausage in the middle and roll it up. Repeat until all pasta and veggies are used.
Cover with sauce and sprinkle cheese on top.
Bake for 45 minutes and enjoy!
Now I know I could have just made lasagna, but if you are one of the lucky few who have Whole Foods who carry the jumbo shells try this recipe with them, and then mail me some of the shells 🙂
