Everything Taste better with a Fried Egg

Parsley and Fried Egg PastaIngredients

Instructions

  1. Bring a pot of well salted water to a boil and boil the pasta until a bit before it’s perfect.
  2. Wash and thoroughly dry the parsley before mincing it. Wet parsley tends to clump and will be hard to distribute evenly in the pasta.
  3. When the pasta is a few minutes away from being done, heat a pan and fry the eggs using 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  4. When the pasta is done, drain it well, return it to the pot, and toss with 1/4 cup of olive oil. Add the minced parsley and toss to coat evenly.
  5. Add the cheese in a little bit at a time tossing between each addition. Save a little to garnish.
  6. To plate, put a layer of pasta down, top with a fried egg, and sprinkle some freshly ground black pepper, sea salt and cheese on top of the egg.

Butternut Squash and Spinach Lasagna Rolls

butternut squash and spinach Lasagna RollsLasagna rolls stuffed with spinach and cheese, then topped with a creamy butternut Parmesan sauce and baked in the oven with even more cheese – trust me, you want these in your life!

Ingredients:

For the Butternut Parmesan Sauce:

1 lb butternut squash, peeled and diced
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 cup shallots, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp fresh grated parmesan cheese
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

For the Lasagna:
9 lasagna noodles, cooked (use gluten free noodles for gluten free, or brown rice if possible)
10 oz package frozen chopped spinach, heated and squeezed well
15 oz fat free ricotta cheese (I like Polly-o)
1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
1 large egg
salt and fresh pepper
9 tbsp (about 3 oz) part skim shredded Italian Blend Cheese (I used Sargento)
1 tablespoon parsley, minced

Directions:
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add butternut squash and cook until soft. Remove squash with a slotted spoon, reserve about 1 cup of the water and set aside, then blend until smooth with an immersion blender, adding 1/4 cup of the reserved liquid to thin out.

Meanwhile, in a large deep non-stick skillet, add the oil, sauté the shallots and garlic over medium-low heat until soft and golden, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add pureed butternut squash, season with with salt and fresh cracked pepper and add a little more of the reserved water to thin out to your liking. Stir in 2 1/2 tablespoons of the parmesan cheese and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Ladle about 1/2 cup butternut sauce sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 12 baking dish.

Combine spinach, ricotta, Parmesan, egg, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.

Place a piece of wax paper on the counter and lay out lasagna noodles. Make sure noodles are dry. Take 1/3 cup of ricotta mixture and spread evenly over noodle. Roll carefully and place seam side down onto the baking dish. Repeat with remaining noodles.

Ladle about 1 cup of sauce over the noodles in the baking dish and top each one with 1 tbsp Italian cheese blend. Put foil over baking dish and bake for 40 minutes, or until cheese melts and everything is hot and bubbly. Top with parsley and serve. Makes 9 rolls.

To serve, ladle a little extra sauce on the plate and top with lasagna roll.
