Directions

  1. To make the sauce, melt the butter over medium-low heat, and then add the flour and whisk for 3 minutes.
  2. Increase the heat to medium-high and whisk the sauce until it comes to a simmer and is thick and smooth, about 3 minutes.
  3. Whisk the salt, pepper, and nutmeg into the bechamel sauce.
  4. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  5. Whisk the ricotta, spinach, 1 cup of the Parmesan, prosciutto, egg, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl to blend.
  6. Cook the noodles in a large pot of boiling salted water until the noodles are al dente.
  7. Drain, and then arrange noodles in a single layer on a baking sheet to prevent them from sticking.
  8. Butter a 13x9x2 inch glass baking dish.
  9. Pour the bechamel sauce into the bottom of the baking dish.
  10. Lay out 4 lasagna noodles on a work surface, and spread about 3 tablespoons of ricotta mixture evenly over each noodle.
  11. Starting at one end, roll each noodle like a jelly roll. Lay the lasagna rolls seam side down without touching, atop the bechamel sauce in the dish. Repeat with the remaining noodles and ricotta mixture.
  12. Spoon the marinara sauce over the lasagna rolls, and then sprinkle them with the mozzarella and the remaining 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese.
  13. Cover tightly with foil, and bake until heated through and the sauce and bubbles, about 20 minutes.
  14. Uncover and bake until the cheese on top becomes golden, about 15 minutes longer.
  15. Let stand for 10 minutes.

I did add more prosciutto as a previous poster suggested:-). Great taste and something different from the usual. Keep those recipes coming! Made for PAC '09

Delicious. I liked the flavor of the prosciutto very much. Might add more next time. I found some extra wide lasagne noodles, so they turned out a little bigger. A couple of them with a vegie will make a nice lunch. Thanks for posting this!
