Instructions
  1. To make the spinach ricotta filling, start by removing the excess water from your ricotta. Place a paper towel or napkin on top of a mesh strain and put your ricotta on top. Place the strainer over a bowl and let the water drain for 20 mins.
  2. While the ricotta is draining, heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add in your garlic and let brown for 2-3 minutes until nice and caramelized. Add in your spinach and let cook for 1-3 minutes until wilted. Take off the heat and let cool to room temperature.
  3. Then, in a mixing bowl mix together the ricotta cheese, spinach, lemon juice, lemon zest, black pepper, dried italian herbs, fresh basil, chili flakes, mozarella cheese, and parmesan cheese. Your filling is ready.

  4. To make the truffle cream, use an electric whisk or beater to whip the heavy whipping cream to stiff peaks. Gently fold in the ricotta cheese, mascarpone cheese, truffle oil, and black pepper. Transfer to a piping bag or ziplock and let chill in the fridge.

    If you don't want to use truffle cream, you can skip this step and just drizzle truffle oil instead.

  5. To assemble the lasagna, start by adding a layer of sauce to the bottom of a baking/serving dish. Set this aside.
  6. Lay out a lasagna sheet and spread a generous layers of the ricotta and spinach filling. Place another lasagna sheet on top and then spread a layer of red pepper spread and sprinkle on shredded mozzarella cheese. Gently roll this this lengthwise and use a sharp knife to cut in half. Place the rolls in the baking dish. Repeat this process until your baking dish it full but not over-crowded.
  7. Use a small spoon to fill in the gaps between lasagna rolls with more pasta sauce. Cover with foil and bake covered for 20 minutes and uncovered for 10 minutes at 385°F / 195°C.

  8. When ready to serve, pipe the truffle cream (or just drizzle truffle oil instead) in the gaps between the lasagna rolls and enjoy!
