Roasted Butternut Squash Lasagna Rolls

Confession. I’ve made lasagna rolls before and they were an epic FAIL! They wouldn’t stay rolled up. I must of overstuffed them with meat or something, I don’t know.๐Ÿ˜‚

But THESE! These were very cooperative rolls that came out beautiful! I’m always looking for options for meatless meals to incorporate into my weekly meals. This recipe can also be altered from vegetarian to vegan by simply switching up the brands.

I enjoy sharing meals that have few ingredients because it makes them so much more approachable.

If you’re like me and enjoy a little spice in your life, feel free to add a few dried pepper flakes to spice it up.
