Healthy Lasagna for One?

Didn't know that was possible, did you? Well, it is. And it was so yummy!

Let me lay this out there: I make the best lasagna you'll ever taste. When I make lasagna, it's a two-day affair and I could feed my whole unit off of one giant, cheesey, hearty, saucey pan. Needless to say, my world-class lasagna doesn't get made too often. But it's soooo good... but it's soooooo much work for one person... but it's soooooooooo good... but... you can see how this goes. How to resolve the problem...

Lasagna rolls!

Instead of making a giant layered pan, I put the filling onto the individual lasagna noodles then rolled them up & smothered them with (homemade) sauce. To make it a little healthier, I used ground turkey, fresh tomatoes instead of sauce, only one-third the cheese, and I added shredded carrots & chopped broccoli. Quite yummy. I made too much filling so I threw it in the pan I cooked the rolls in.

I'm not gonna lie, they were messy. And it took until about the third roll until I got the filling amount right. But it was all worth it in the end because I just had a delicious dinner. And lunch tomorrow is going to be just as good.
