I had a bit of a problem with the roll-ups holding together while cooking. The ricotta cheese mixture seeped from the pinwheels a bit and the lasagna rolls kinda fell over. I don't know if I had too much sauce, or what exactly caused the problem. The flavor was good, though. It is absolutely a comfort food. I did add a bit more onion, mustard and worchestershire sauce to the sauce, just as a personal taste preference. Hubby and I discussed that spinach could be added to the ricotta mixture, then piped into manicotti shells and baked with the sauce. The cheese sauce would also be wonderful for old-fashioned baked mac and cheese.
lol, I can't believe some else does this! I have loved making these pinwheels sence I was only about 10-years-old. Whenever my mother would make lasgna I would always steal the left over noodles and make these types of pinwheels. Wow, other people really do think like me, LOL! Thank you for posting!
