Lasagna Walk-A-Ways

How would you like to walk a way with one of these?

This is a new recipe which I will be making many times in the future. This had my family hootin' and hollerin'!!! You start out with some crusty rolls. I could not find small ones so I used the bread bowls that are typically filled with soup. Next time I will make these smaller. You cut the tops off and hollow out the inside leaving only about 1/4 inch of shell. Use the removed bread to make bread crumbs or bread pudding or stuffing.

I made a garlic compound butter to spread on the inside and top the walk-a-ways at the end. You can use regular butter or any kind of garlic butter you regularly use.

Spread the inside of the roll shell with the compound butter.

In a separate bowl, add 2 cups of ricotta.

Add an assortment of cheeses to the ricotta. I add some shredded parmesan, asiago and mozarella. Add salt and pepper to taste.

I also added some shredded cheddar. I don't know why. Cheddar is not commonly used in lasagna but I just decided to throw some in and was glad I did.

Place a slice of provolone into the base. This will melt and seal the base so there is no leakage.

Just tuck it down in there really tight.

I made my own sauce but just take any spaghetti sauce you usually use and mix it with some sort of pasta. I used a small penne so I could layer it evenly on the bottom of the walk-a-way.

Place a layer of the pasta in each roll and press it down.

I added a slice of mortadella at this point. You could skip this or you could substitute a thin layer of any kind of meat you like. Pepperoni would be good or prosciutto would work too.

Spread a layer of the ricotta mixture and press down.

Add a heaping layer of remaining spaghetti sauce. Place in a preheated 350 degree oven. Bake for about 40 minutes depending on the size of the rolls you have use.

Remove them from the oven.

Top with another slice of provolone cheese and sprinkle with some grated mozzarella and sprinkle with parmesan.

At this point the smells were so good they resurrected Julia Chow.

She was summoning the gods of slippage.

And last but not least, add a dollop of the garlic butter to the top of the roll. Sit them back in the oven until the cheese begins to melt. Then turn on the broiler and put them under it for a few minutes until they start to brown and bubble. Watch closely so they do not burn.

This looks like a party waiting to happen.

Let these sit for about 30 minutes before eating.

They must rest and become firm. You can pick them up and eat them like a sandwich if you make them smaller than these. I can't wait for football weather for many reasons but now I have a great tailgating recipe! These would be great to take on picnics too.

Think of these as eating lasagna with garlic bread.

Except that you can grab one of these and just walk a way!

Very different, very interesting. It's a good spin on the traditional Italian fare.

I'm hosting a new meme, "Summer Sundays". It's all about what summer means to you - perhaps rhubarb??? I hope you'll come and join the fun.

Julia Chow rose to the occasion. She's a real trooper. The "god's of slippage", laugh out loud, so funny!

Honestly, you are blessed by the karma of good food.

What a totally amazing over-the-top recipe. I swear the aroma reaches me here in the deep south. :) Yums~

I made "Jaz's Tornado Spaghetti". Delish!!! It was easy and we ate it all gone!

Well, xoxo to Teddy Spahetti, & Happy Day to you!
There is not a single recipe you make that does not make me want to throw caution to the winds and make whatever it is...and this is NO excepting, Joyce!
Like Teddy, it roused this lady from her lethargy!
Printing this one too...soon I will have a cookbook by...OCTOBER FARM!

OH. MY. *drool* I don't think I've seen anything that looked that good in a long time. Of course.. it looks even better because someone other than moi had to make it lol
Debbie said…
Oh my! This is definitely a keeper! What a fantastic idea! I used to cook like this all the time but since my heart attack, we gave up bread and butter and lots of other things I miss like crazy. This definitely will have to be something I will go off the diet for though. How lucky is your family to have you to cook for them all the time.:) This looks like something right out of a magazine...and the berries in the previous post...gorgeous and so tasty looking!
