Asiago and Artichoke Lasagna Rolls

This post is sponsored by Bertolli.  Asiago and Artichoke Lasagna Rolls are a fun twist on traditional lasagna, but instead of being layered, the lasagna noodles are rolled up and stuffed full of lots of cheese, artichokes, and Bertolli Riserva Sauce.

If you were to guess my son's nationality by the way he eats, you would think he is Italian.  The boy loves all things pasta and would eat just Italian food morning, noon, and night, if I let him.

As a matter of fact, my whole family loves Italian food.  We even serve Italian on Christmas!  Stuffed shells, to be exact.  We may not be Italian, but we love our Italian food traditions.

That's why, when the good folks at Bertolli asked if I'd like to try out the new line of Bertolli® Riserva Italian Sauces in honor of their 150th Anniversary, I just had to say yes!  I was challenged to bring Tuscany to my table and share my creations using the hashtag #MyTuscanTable.  I came up with three fabulously delicious Tuscan-inspired dishes to share!

For the first recipe, I created these absolutely delectable Lasagna Rolls.  I was inspired by the Riserva Asiago Cheese and Artichokes Sauce for this recipe and the outcome was delish!


Just in case you're not familiar with lasagna rolls, let me explain.  Instead of being made like traditional lasagna in a layered fashion, the cheesy ricotta mixture is spread onto the noodles and they are rolled up into little bundles.  You then top the rolls off with a little sauce and cheese, bake, and you're done!

They're easier to make than you think, and preparing them this way makes them a breeze to serve!  One roll for the light eaters and two rolls for the big eaters.  My kids loved these and gobbled them right up and my husband had nothing but compliments.

The fact that this 150th Anniversary celebration was centered around Tuscan inspired dishes was obviously amazing, but my favorite element of the festivities is that for each #MyTuscanTable share during the month of October, Bertolli will donate funds to help No Kid Hungry feed kids in need 10 healthy meals, with a minimum donation of half a million meals!

I am a proud No Kid Hungry Blogger and I am thrilled to be able to create delectable dishes for Bertolli's Anniversary while supporting No Kid Hungry at the same time.

It's a win-win!
