Serves: 8


  • 12 no-boil lasagna noodles
  • 1 1⁄2 lbs. whole-milk ricotta cheese
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 4 oz. minced grated pecorino romano cheese
  • 1⁄2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1⁄2 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 1⁄2 cup toasted pine nuts
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped parsley
  • 1⁄3 cup scallions, finely chopped
  • 1⁄2 tsp. dried hot red pepper flakes
  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt
  • 1⁄2 tsp. ground black pepper


  • Fill a large baking dish with boiling water and soak lasagna noodles until pliable, about 5 minutes. Remove from water, gently shake, and place on a paper towel or cloth to blot. Keep moist under a lightly dampened towel until ready to fill.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine ricotta, garlic, pecorino romano, Parmesan, sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, parsley, scallions, and red pepper flakes and mix very well, adjusting the salt and pepper to taste.
  • Take 1 lasagna noodle and spread with about 1⁄2 cup of the filling. Roll each noodle up lengthwise into a right roll. Cut each in half. Place, cut side down, on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  • When ready to serve, bake in a preheated 350°F oven until warm, about 10 minutes. Do not overbake.
