Lovely Cooking: Giada's Spinach Lasagna Rolls






I haven't tried any lasagna recipes before because it seemed intimidating but, this weekend I was feeling ambitious. I found this Lasagna Roll recipe on the Food Network website. I somehow convinced myself that lasagna rolls were easier to make than a pan of lasagna because I would be making it in smaller portions- which of course is not true but it got me to try the recipe =P

I chose this recipe because:
1. Giada's dishes look really good on the Food Network
2. This recipe received over 1000 reviews and is still showing up with a 5 star rating.
3. I wanted to make something with prosciutto in it, since J loves this stuff.

This recipe was definitely a success! I can finally say I've made lasagna and to top it off, J loved it! However, as much as I love having leftovers, I'm not really looking forward to this entire week's lunch special...spinach lasagna rolls.
