This week I am sharing some of my favorite things! I’m starting with this pasta dish that was delicious. It does take a bit of work and time but it was well worth it. Jim has been asking for this again and again. I shared some with a neighbor and she enjoyed it as much as we did. There are so many great flavors in this dish, the spicy sausage, the sweet sun dried tomatoes and the peppery arugula! Perfect on one of these cold snowy days we seem to be having!
1 pound spicy Jimmy Dean sausage
1 large onion, diced
1 cup of heavy cream
2 cups of gruyere cheese, divided
1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese
1 cup of chopped sun dried tomatoes
2 cups of mixed spinach and arugula
10 lasagna sheets, cooked according to package
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large pan, add the sausage and start to brown, remove fat if needed and add the diced onion. Continue to brown the sausage and let the onion soften. When cooked through, Add cream, cream cheese and 1 cup of the gruyere cheese and stir until creamy. Add the nutmeg, sun dried tomatoes, arugula and spinach stir to combine. Once the spinach and arugula are wilted remove from heat.
To assemble the roll ups, start with one cooked lasagna sheet at a time. Add about a Tablespoon of the Sausage and sauce, Roll the lasagna sheet up and place in a prepared 9 x 13 baking dish. Do this for each pasta sheet. Top the rolls with the remaining cheese and the remaining sauce. Bake approximately 30 minutes or until warmed through.
