Lasagna Roll Ups

Call Me By Your Name” was set in Italy in a carefree little Italian village. The days were warm and sunny and seemed to go on forever. When trying to pick a recipe to pair with this movie, we didn’t want anything heavy, so we decided to take our Lasagna Roll Ups and downsize them. This is a really easy recipe to use an appetizer, you can even keep them in the freezer for when those last minute guests show up.
