How to prepare the recipe for lasagna rolls

  1. First prepare the béchamel sauce (or use the ready-made one). Melt the butter in a saucepan then add the flour and cook everything, stirring with a wooden spoon until it has taken on a nice hazelnut colour. Then pour the milk, mixing now with a whisk and flavored with nutmeg. Cook for about ten minutes until it thickens , stirring often with a whisk. Finally, add salt as well.
  2. Now place a first sheet of fresh egg pasta on the cutting board and cover it with a thin layer of béchamel. Then place the ham slices and finally the cheese slices.
  3. Roll up around the long side and with the help of a sharp knife make your 2 cm thick swivels .
  4. Spread a thin layer of béchamel on the bottom of a baking dish suitable for cooking in the oven, then position the swivels, placing them lying down. Cover with a little more bechamel and sprinkle with grated Parmesan.
  5. Bake at 200°C for 30 minutes and let it cool for a few seconds before serving.

As mentioned, you can also prepare ricotta and spinach lasagne swivels, using the classic cannelloni filling. You will get a recipe that is also suitable for those who follow a vegetarian diet. You can also enrich the filling of our recipe with sautéed mushrooms.
