I have been wandering through the bloggosphere trying to find new recipes to appease my family and distract them from the fact that they have been fed soup or stew at least 5 or 6 nights out of the last week and a half or so. I mean I figure if I can make 3 or 4 awesome meals for them they won’t realize when I slip back into my addiction right? Well it sounds good on paper at least.
I ran across a blog called I The Cook. Have you read her blog? If not I will tell you it is a MUST read. She has some very tasty recipes and her presentations make me drool! She had a post called White Chicken Lasagna Roll Ups and after wiping my chin I decided that I wanted to make them. Of course I had to put my own spin on them (I swear I can never NOT tinker with a recipe) but you have to check out her original version as well.
I have made lasagna roll ups in the past but I was really excited about trying this new twist. Especially since I had just been working on a Mushroom and Garlic Alfredo sauce. I immediately knew this would be the perfect marriage. So imagine how happy this this little cook was when the meal was met with an enthusiasm I could not believe.
My family is always supportive of what I do. They give me their opinions, good or bad, because they know how important it is to me to make sure the things I create are the kind of recipes that everyone will love. I am lucky that, for the most part, they love what I do. This was one of those meals though that if you left your hand near the food too long you might have pulled it back minus a finger or two! So words were not necessarily. But once they stopped eating and took a moment to breath, the reaction was this was one of the best recipes yet.
The only thing I would have changed was the amount of sauce. I didn’t feel it was quite enough so I doubled the recipe. If you are not a “saucy” kind of person go ahead and just do half. I just love this sauce so much it has gone on to my list of things I want to can. I now have Chili Verde, Marinara Sauce, and Mushroom Garlic Alfredo on that list.
