I loved this recipe! I doubled the bechamel sauce and added sauteed red peppers and onions into the cheese mix along with increased prosciutto (4 oz.). Thanks to other reviewers imput. My older son 22 missed having chopmeat in it. Next time I'll add a meat sauce over it instead of marinara.
Loved this recipe. I used fresh spinach and basil in the filling and my marinara had meat in it. Will make this one all the time.
My family loved these. My DH has traveled to Italy and eaten in many small family restaurants there. He thinks this is better then what he got in Italy!!! And it is so easy my 11 year old loves to help me roll them. The only thiing I did differenlty is the marinara sauce. Instead of store bought I just put a can of crushed tomatoes in a jar and add some red wine vinegar and shake it up. so yummy for any recipe that needs a red sauce and mych less expensive especially if you can your own tomatoes.
Very good recipe, thanks for posting. I think that next time I will add more spice of some kind because mine came out really good but a bit bland. I will also make a little more bechamel. I will have to work on revising this to my personal tastes. But this is pretty much a keeper.
This was great and I can see how it can be very versitile by changing the filling or the sauces. I made this for a birthday dinner party for my SIL and we all really liked it. I did add extra prosciutto (8oz for a double batch) but the flavor didn't stand out as much as I would have liked. Next time I'll experiment with different fillings and increase the bechamel sauce and marinara because I felt the rolls needed a bit more sauciness. This was an elegant italian dish for a dinner party with my only complaint being the length of time it took to boil all those noodles (20!) 4 at a time. Next time I think I'll just use a large stock pot and cook more at a time. If you're diligent about moving the noodles around in the first minuet or so of boiling they shouldn't stick together. I saw Giada's show where she prepared this and was so happy to find that bungalowten had already posted it on my beloved Zaar... Thanks!!
OUTSTANDING!! I did not use the prosciutto, added additional spinach. Thanks!
I LOVE this recipe! I saw it on Giada's show, and just had to make it! It has so much flavor and uniqueness. I love the addition of the prosciutto. You can only taste a hint of it after baked, so you might want to add double if you want it more meaty. But I like it with the amount listed. The bechamel sauce and marinara sauce go great together. I like mine saucy so I will bake it and afterwords add more marinara sauce on the side to add to the rolls. This is an absolute favorite recipe, MAKE IT!
Excellent!! It has become a frequently requested dinner item. my husband can't get enough of it. I add grilled hot Italian sausage to the tomato sauce & spiced it up with red pepper flakes & garlic. Mmmmm
