Still. sick. yuck. I swear I cold easily go through a box of tissues right now. I hate this. It’s so funny too because we stopped taking Vitamin C because we ran out and now I’m sick. I’m telling you, it helps to have that around.
Anyway, tonight’s meal was oh so yummy. Recipe 2 out of…a whole bunch!
Lasagna rolls with roasted red pepper sauce.
Some of the ingredients…
Weighing out 7 ounces of roasted red peppers on my food scale.
Finished lasagna noodles.
Baby spinach, mushrooms, garlic, and onion beginning to stew.
After about 5 minutes:
Ricotta and mozzarella cheese added.
Sauce ingredients blended smoothly.
We are ready to roll. 1/4 cup cheese mixture on each noodle.
Roll up with the seams facing the bottom of the pan.
Look at my cute Pampered Chef trivet! I finally am using it!
Cook in microwave for 5 minutes with saran wrap placed tightly over 2 quart dish.
I flubbed in that I didn’t have fresh basil so I used WAY TOO MUCH basil flake spice. Basil Flakes do not equal same amount as fresh basil needed! Holy spicy Batman!

And here are the modifications:
bagged shredded cheese instead of fresh
basil spice instead of fresh basil (a
little goes a long way!)
I forgot to get the sugar snap peas so we didn’t have a side tonight. So I just made two servings of the dessert for each of us. Calm down, “two servings” really just meant two pears chopped up. One for each of us instead of half for each of us.
Lemme tell you a story about this guy…
I do not go to the ABC store often and here is how you can tell: I did not know they kept airplane bottles by the counter and I did not know was kind of liquor Amaretto was. I asked the guy and when I went to pay, he really studied my ID. I am obviously not a big drinker!
I modified the recipe since it became 2 servings instead of four.
1 tbsp brown sugar divided between both
1 tbsp Amaretto divided
2 tbsps toasted almond slices divided
So good and filling! We both didn’t finish our portions.
I have a date with Vicks tonight. See you tomorrow!
