Lasagna is my all time favorite meal. Probably because I was fed lasagna far too many times when on tour for Young Ambassadors. When an LDS group is asked to provide food, they provide lasagna. That’s just how it is. I’m not complaining, I was always very grateful for the free food! But having the same thing to eat all the time did get old.
Fortunately, this lasagna is not like regular recipes—it is meat free and it contains fresh tomatoes and basil. The word “caprese” in the title is what drew me to this recipe in the first place.
I love all things caprese. The combination of mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil has always been one of my weaknesses. However, this dish is still a “lasagna dish,” so I was skeptical. Fortunately, the first bite left me eager to gobble up the rest! It is deliciously fresh and just as wonderful as I hoped it would be.
I mean, just look at that ooey-gooey melted mozzarella and those gorgeous fresh ribbons of basil. How could you not be in heaven? These Caprese Lasagna Roll Ups definitely qualify as Italian comfort food at its finest. Not to mention, they are SUPER easy. Make them, trust me.
